Take Charge of Your Life

What do you do if you are not happy? Where do you turn if your life is just not the way you want it to be? All too often the voices around will tell you to take care of yourself. Take charge of your life and what happens, happens. But the key to a life that satisfies is in putting the first thing first.

What is the first thing? An awareness that there is One Who knows and understands all your needs. A choice to live your life following His Will. A decision to seek wisdom from Him.

But we resist that, don’t we? Our human nature struggles longing to be independent and have our own way. But in truth, our wisdom is limited and our thoughts are not His.  It is only as we move into a life of surrender that doors we thought had closed long ago can open.

So how do you take charge of your life?

The best way, the only way that works, is in making your choice to yield to Him.

Surrender.

Water ripples as it flows down. We must bow our wills to the One Who patiently waits for us to hand it to Him and when we do, the process of change begins.

Life is about loving. Learning what it is to yield and receive the greatest gift of all.

Whatever you are facing today, hand it over to Love.

It’s a choice that will lead to unbelievable peace and joy.

 

“Come onto Me all you who are heavy-laden and I will give you rest.” (Matt. 11:28)
