I’m learning—all too slowly, at times—that when I give up the losing battle of trying to my life in my own way, I gain abiding peace and deep serenity. For many of us, that learning process is a painfully slow one. Eventually, however, I understand that there are only two wills in the world, my will and God’s. Whatever is within my direct control is my will, and whatever is beyond my direct control is God’s will. So I try to accept that which is beyond my control as God’s will for me.
Am I beginning to realize that, by surrendering my will to the Divine Will, I am for the first time living without turmoil and without anxiety?
Today I Pray
May I hope that my will can be congruent with the all-encompassing will of God. I pray that l will know immediately if my will is in a useless tug of war with His Divine Will. May I trust God now to guide my will according to His Master Plan and to make His purpose mine.
Today I Will Remember
I will that my will be in harmony with God’s.
