Food for thought
"Dear God, Your will, nothing more, nothing less, nothing else. Amen."
It's been almost 2 weeks since I've written a post. Some of you may be expecting this post to be about my weight loss journey, but it isn't. If you need to know, it's going pretty well. Trying everyday to stay on track. But enough of that for now.
Yesterday, I read the short and sincere prayer that I quoted above and I haven't been able to get it out of my head. As you may or may not know, I'm a pretty talkative person and that doesn't change when I have my conversations with God. I regularly remind Him about how awesome He is and how grateful I am for what He is doing in our lives. I tell Him about our struggles, our hopes, our desires. I pray for our family and friends. I also like to remind God that we trust Him, above all else and that we want Him to continue to be in control of our lives. Now, I don't think there is anything wrong with having a friend-like conversation with God every day (in fact, I encourage it), but there is something about the simple prayer above that really struck me.
Your will, nothing more, nothing less, nothing else.
Wow. If that's not wholeheartedly trusting in God than I don't know what is.
I wonder what would happen if for just one day, I put aside all of my desires and simply asked for God's will and His will only. Is there really any need to say anything more? anything less? or anything else?
