I can't... He CAN... I Need to Let Him
We humans are amazing creatures. We are blessed with this gift called free will and we dress it up and disguise it to ourselves and others as "will power ". We attempt to do many impossible things with it and sometimes we even succeed and then allow ourselves to believe the delusion that we did it all by ourselves.
The truth is that while yes it does take will power to go to work, make a meal, and participate in the lives of those around us, more often than not, we are the recipient of God's blessings and His will for us when the bigger things happen.
Take a moment today and look at all the good things around you and in your life. Are they really ONLY from your will power?..
Check your experience...
"Lack of power that was our dilemma. We had to find a power by which we could live, and it had to be a Power greater than ourselves." Big Book pg 45
Lord, we thank you for the blessings in our lives that mainly come from You when we turn our will and lives over to you, AMEN.
"Then Job answered the LORD and said, I know that You can do all things, And that no purpose of Yours can be thwarted." Job 41: 1-2
