Stepping outside of ourselves

6 thoughts on “Stepping outside of ourselves”

  1. It really does make sense to lose control and hand over matters to God. But it is very difficult … almost against our very human nature.

    During my illness I lost control. I just HAD to listen to and do what my doctors said. I neither had the knowledge, nor the strength, to argue and take matters in my hands … in my control.

    Funny how we so often willingly hand over control to others in our lives; yet we find it so difficult to hand over control to God. It’s a matter of trust I suppose … or lack of it!

    God bless.

    1. You make an excellent point Victor. We trust others with our lives and yet we continually resist trusting God. This is something I really want to focus on in 2011.

  2. Giving yourself to God is the daily act of conversion. More and more, day by day, you then move from self-control (an illusion if ever there was one!) to being at peace with the Lord. You do this and you reach a day when you look back and it comes to you how much you have been blessed and how far you have come.
