Luke 22:42 Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done.
God continues teaching me to be thankful, but there are many times I am spoiled. Wanting my way and my way only. Part of learning to be thankful is accepting what comes your way. Doing what you can as God leads you, but ultimately accepting what God brings you each day.
Having wisdom to change the things you can and wisdom to know when you can’t. God is so good, yet most times I see what I can’t have rather than what I already have. God is so patient and loving all the time. He never gets angry with me. Instead He teaches me, redirects me and blesses me with His amazing love. I don’t think I realized how spoiled I was until I got fired from my last job. It was such a shock to me, but also the BIGGEST blessing I could ever hope for. Something I refused to see until weeks after and even now two years later. God moved me from a job that tore me down, stole my health, peace and joy to a job that continually brings me joy, peace, healthier choices and being built up.
Even after all that, I am still learning not to fight God, but follow Him. To listen to His leading. God is always willing to teach me His ways, I just have to be willing to learn. I have to want to learn and live God’s statutes. It is difficult with self always wanting it’s way, but difficult is part of the process of growing and strengthening ourselves in God. So let it always be YOUR WILL, Lord God and never mine.
