Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him and he will do this.
– Psalm 37:5
I had a senior at the old place where I worked, who used to send us two or three full pages of requests that scared us. Initially when we saw his name in our mail box, we would think to ourselves that our day is fully set to understanding his request. Pretty soon we realized he was just beating around the bush and most of the time, all that he wanted us to do was as simple as putting a dot on a paper.
At times I have realized that we as humans and God’s children tend to complicate things as simple as drawing a straight line. All we need to ask for God to give us the grace to live each day. Committing our lives could be as simple as asking God to help us put the right spices while cooking or asking Him to accompany us on our visit to the supermarket to help us reduce our impulsive purchases. I always ask God to help me while booking tickets too. Sometimes it gets as simple as that.
One of my Sunday school teachers taught me this thing that I always kept telling myself –
Let Go and Let GOD.
Lord, help me to do what you want me to do. Amen.
