"The deepest spiritual lessons are not learned by His letting us have our way in the end, but by His making us wait, bearing with us in love and patience until we are able honestly to pray what He taught His disciples to pray:

'Thy Will Be Done'."

HIS world

How often do we act like as though we are, in some way, "inviting" God into OUR world??
we "make time" for God...
we "give Him credit" for creation...
we "include Him" in special events...
we "keep Him number one" in our lives....
The grandest invitation we've ever received is the one postmarked thousands of years ago when God chose to invite US into HIS world!
HE made time for US.
HE gave Himself credit when He said "it is good"...He doesn't need our stamp of approval.
HE made US for HIS pleasure...not our own.
HE is already part of every event...special or ordinary.
HE is ALREADY number one...He is the first and last...EVERYTHING starts and ends with HIM.
How thankful I am, that HE has invited us to partake of HIS world...may we not get so wrapped up in it that we lose sight of how spectacular that really is.
