Thoughts from my heart

Experience > Understanding

Do you ever feel totally lost as to where God has you? Do you feel the need to have it all planned out? Are you impatient and wanting to feel in control? Well have I got news for you...

I have struggled with all the above and bet that most everyone has at some time or another. We can become so caught up in how we think things are "supposed" to turn out and when they don't go as we would like or hope, we feel helpless. The need for control can be a dangerous thing. Yeah yeah, I know it's healthy to have your life together but when you feel powerless because you don't know all the answers, God didn't intend us to function like that. 

Bottom line is this: You aren't meant to have it all figured out. God didn't create you to plan your whole life. Giving God control doesn't mean you don't have any. It means you trust Him enough to know that He won't let you down. He has good and beautiful things in store for you and you will miss out on all that if you're too busy trying to figure it all out. The experience is greater than the understanding of it all.

If you're feeling uneasy about something in your life, find rest in this:
Never doubt God’s mighty power to work in you and accomplish all this. He will achieve infinitely more than your greatest request, your most unbelievable dream, and exceed your wildest imagination! He will outdo them all, for his miraculous power constantly energizes you.
Ephesians 3:20 The Passion Translation

P.S. This song by United Pursuit that says, "I lean not on my own understanding" is one of my favorites! Go listen here.
