I’m not depressed, and I’m not giving up on life or anything.
Rather, sometimes I simply need to let go and let God rule my life rather than myself.
But there’s a tricky balance to maintain too.
I need to be active and living life fully, but I also need to realize that, “The best laid plans of mice and men, oft go awry” (Robert Burns).
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” (Jeremiah 29:11)
“He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain that which he cannot lose.” (Jim Elliot)
