My entire adult life (and teenage years, and sometimes childhood) I have tried to control everything. I've put God into a neat little package so that when I need something I could just pull Him out and pray. I have tried to fit God's plans into my will. In case you are wondering, this has led me to a lot of heartache and a constant struggle to find contentment.
In recent months I've really learned that as a follower of Christ, I should seek His will and forget my selfish desires. Because God's perspective is so much different than mine. Stand in a corn field and you'll see how overwhelmingly large a corn field can appear, but from the windows of an airplane, it's clear that the corn field is minute compared to the big picture.
Who am I to stand in the middle of the corn field and question the One who can see the entire view?
Be still and know that I am God. Psalms 46:10
