Not My Way, Please!



"There are two kinds of people: those who say to God, 'Thy will be done,' and those to whom God says, 'All right, then, have it your way.'"~ C.S. Lewis ~
This quote reminds me of the scripture below...one that I have unfortunately had to learn the hard way...
Luk 20:18 "Whosoever shall fall upon that stone shall be broken; but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder. "
I thought I wanted to comment on this quote when I linked to it but let it suffice to say that this is the scripture that comes to mind upon reading it....and I type it with a wry smile on my face...
I do know...
It is truly a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the Living God....
Lord let me turn quickly to you....yield swiftly to your desires, laying down my own in exchange for yours...let me never forget that You alone are Sovereign...You know exactly what You are doing and You will accomplish your Purpose. Help me to fall readily on You.

LOVE that CS Lewis quote. Hmm...how often has God had to say that to me? TOO often!

What a battle it is to yield to Him. I am just too human/sinful much of the time. I feel like the Israelites, wandering, getting hard hearted, then finally coming back to trusting Him, the Ever Faithful One. Oh, how I need His mercy
