I think about all the times in my life when I told God what he needed to do. Prayers that not only laid out the problem but also the solution. Prayers that told him what was best for my life, what would make me happy, what would make everything work out right.
Boy, was I foolish. Boy, am I still foolish.
Simple solutions to complex problems are rarely that simple and they are rarely solutions. That goes for international crises and for personal plans.
I need to learn to trust and say, “Your will be done.”
It ain’t easy, folks.
