we all have these expectations in life right? We expect to …. i don’t know …. get married … have kids … white picket fence … and so on. Expectations on what our life should look like. the way things should be. But thats not life. Why? Cause God is in control – not us.
Bear with me – but this is a struggle for me. I love control (we know this) but I am learning this hard lesson – its not about me.
My husband has been such a great teacher of what a servant is. I have always been the reluctant servant – the one thats more like a slave. It was ingrained in my life early on – I was only good enough to be a slave in life. In fact that was a nick name i had when I was younger.
While they were wrong in the way they taught it? The idea is true though. Its not about what we want when we want. Its about being a servant and committing our life to God.
People say this whole “name it and claim it thing” is biblical. Can someone show me where? I mean wouldn’t that take away from the greatness of our God? Wouldn’t that take away from us learning how to be kind humans?
I know for one thing – if I had control over my life? I would be a selfish brat. Oh I would be horrible. I wouldn’t have any friends and I would be …. well a jerk.
While I am glad that God has not given me everything I want when I want it I will admit: Its a difficult life. Especially not getting what you want when you want but thats not the purpose of our lives.
Our purpose in life is to love others. To be a servant to all.
