"I know that there is nothing better for men than to be happy and do good while they live. That everyone may eat and drink, and find satisfaction in all his toil--this is the gift of God." ~ Ecclesiastes 3:12
Why is it that we, with our limited understanding, think we have to figure things out for ourselves? Why do we think we're capable of figuring things out for ourselves?
"I am the LORD your God, who teaches you what is best for you, who directs you in the way you should go. If only you had paid attention to my commands, your peace would have been like a river, your righteousness like the waves of the sea." ~ Isaiah 48:17-18
Lord, forgive me for all the time I've wasted chasing after what I thought I wanted rather than looking to You to guide me in the way I should go. I want to follow Your ways and be filled with Your peace. Help me to set aside my own futile plans and learn from You what is best for me. Love, Lisa
