#ElluresInspiration: What is Your Life?

You who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money.” Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. Instead, you ought to say, “If it is the Lord’s will, we will live and do this or that.” James 4:13-15

They say if you ever want to make God laugh tell him your plans. For me planing is hard to do because I battle back in forth in my mind, “I this what I want or is this God’s purpose for me?” I understand that Life is not about what I want and if it is not his will then it simply will not be done.

In this verse James reminds us that although we may plan, we are not in charge of our future. James is not saying avoid planning, but consider the unnecessary anxiety that comes along with trying to control things that we ultimately can not.
When we lose site of our dean and begin to think we are masters of the universe dysfunction usually follows there after. When you set a plan in motion pray, “Father if it is your will.. ” Trust that God sees your every need, humble yourself about what you can or can’t do. This will allow you to find a peace that let’s you think clearer about today because you have let go of the illusion that you have tomorrow under your control.

Have A Blessed Day!
