I heard a co-worker talking today and she said, “where there’s a will, there’s a way”. Tonight I ask who’s “will” do we sway under. For so many years I followed my own will and have paid a high price for much of my wasted time and effort. When I had enough disappointments I finally asked the right question. “God, if you can hear me I need help.” He actually did help me; the same night I asked, I was given hope and comfort.

There are times when I desire to still follow my own will and my heavenly Father loves me enough to let me learn another lesson. In return for my efforts I get the exact definition of what it means to follow my own will…..the power to arrive at one’s own decision and to act upon it independently in spite of opposition.

I didn’t pull that definition out of a bible, it’s in a Webster’s dictionary. There is truth in what it says. “In spite of opposition” isn’t highlighted or even in a bold font but it should be. Opposition for me pretty much meant, “if it could go wrong, it did go wrong” and even when I thought I was winning the hand, I was losing the game.

Now when I hear someone toss out the phrase, “where there’s a will, there’s a way”, I am mentally snuggling up closer to my Big Daddy to keep me from the harm of my own will.

Matt 6:10 (NIV)  Your kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven
