You know - I still struggle with this, and as I "preached" this step at yesterday's service, I was even more aware that I am weak, that I doubt, and that I don't have the courage I need to have - the will to turn my will and life over to the care of God. It should be easy - I've taken this step more than once, but to completely give up control, even though He does such a better job than I, is tough.
I get a little prideful - "Thanks, God, for helping me out, now I think I can handle things myself. I'll let you know if I need you." And I go about my merry way, until I am feeling overburdened - and I reach out, and He answers, and then I close the door and continue on.
Am I the only person out there who still wants to "do it myself?"
