Justified

Last week packages of baked goodies were mailed to grandchildren and a great-niece in New York City.  Paying for it to go second day, it was to be delivered on Friday, which it wasn’t and on Saturday, they left a notice at her door.  On Monday, she went to the post office and was told it was on the truck and she would have to come back later.  Here, at home, I began angry and called the local post office and was told it was out of her hands after it left here.  Feeling very justified, I wanted to continue on until I knew I was trying to be right.  The choice was mine.  Did I want to turn to God or continue to be right and unhappy?    I was led to Ephesians 3:20-21 which reads “Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever!  Amen.”

There was a total feeling of helplessness when it dawned on me that I am helpless without God, which can never be.  I can’t pick and choose when I turn to God, but I knew I just experienced “human will” and “pride” and “ego”.  As I release this to God, I know He has this!  Rather than have my day ruined, I am rejoicing that I am not in control but knowing God is!
