Today was one of those days where I am convinced God is real. He brought others into my day to inspire and light up the rest of my afternoon. He gave me the strength to love on those who don’t deserve it, but by the grace of the God spoke for me, in place of my human desire/instinct. Its silly really that I would think the good in me is solely from my on will, this world’s to dark for that to be true.
The old saying, “God helps those who help themselves” is bologna.
God helps those who know that they can’t help themselves.
We need to be consciously, actively, radically dependent on God every day of our lives. This can be extremely tough. Security and comfort are virtues we all seek after, myself included. Our society is rooted in the pursuit of material accomplishment and self-reliance.
Let go of control. In the end, it’s just an illusion.
