Catch, ME Newsletter, Vol. 6, Issue 38
Finally, after years of hauling hard-bounds, I’m reading Beverly Lewis’ Amish series.
It seems there’s a rather simple answer to all situations. Give up.
Technically, the message is, ‘Give it to GOD’ – but it amounts to the same thing.
It’s not hard to recognize there are more important things than me. Actually, from a devout, GOD-ly perspective everything is more important than me. Shrugging into, “It’s yours GOD,” seems like too easy a way out for hard times, and reeks of responsibility negation. What about passions? Are those not GOD given? And if HE’s given me desires, why must I pass them back for fulfillment?
I suppose it doesn’t really matter which came first; GOD’s plan or my desire, the chicken or the egg. The fact is they both exist. If my ambitions aren’t being matched; there must be a reason. What remains to be seen is whether I can harness the strength to follow through on what I believe GOD has placed upon my heart, or if I shall concede, call my own game as it stands, then stand hoping I’m still ready to make the catch if the ball comes hurtling back.
