Problem Solving.. Where’s the remote control?

Have you ever wished you could have a remote control to life?  You could use the remote to rewind, fast forward, stop, just pause or in the case of someone else’s life you could just rewind to where everything went wrong and fix it.  Well although creative  minds have made movies about it; we can’t.  Only God can fix what is broken inside of us and it can be frustrating for people who by nature are problem solvers.

God gives us the things we need and what we need is not always what we want at the time.  We do not get to see the blue prints of God’s plan but we do get to see the next step when it’s time.

It’s heartbreaking to see people destroying their lives when they have been given the tools to make it better.  When I mess up and disregard Gods word he lets me know it pretty instantly.  But with each new day I repent and renew my love for him and ask for the wisdom to be wiser and the peace to do his will.

I wasn’t always this humble but thankfully I was given one of the greatest blessings you could ever receive.  My blinders were lifted and I received a second chance at living my life.  It is a blessing that is rare but  brings more riches than gold.

 

God sets himself against the proud, but he shows favor to the humble.  So humble yourselves before the God.   James 4:6-7 NLT
