Writing Our Own Story

All of us have a difficult time letting go of the reigns in our lives. We want to sit in the director's chair or be the puppet master moving our own strings in the direction we want them to go. We struggle with the command that Proverbs 3:5-6 tells us we should follow:

Trust in the Lord with all your heart;
do not depend on your own understanding.
Seek his will in all you do,
and he will show you which path to take.

We fool ourselves into thinking we know what is best. When we feel things should go one way our another and they fail to meet our timelines or expectations, we don't allow ourselves to trust our Father God completely and we "turn from right ways to walk down dark and evil paths" (Proverbs 2:12). We try to write our own stories.

We must learn to honor God by allowing him to "direct our paths." We must learn to be patient and have confidence in His wisdom. For "wisdom is a tree of life to those who embrace her" (Proverbs 3:18).

Start today by trusting Him to write your story and allow your confidence in Him to encourage others. Let him pull the strings and sit in the director's chair. If you allow Him, He will bless you beyond what you could ever fathom.
