God’s Will

Today’s church service was all about God’s will, and I’ll be honest, when our preacher first gave us the BIG secret, I thought he was crazy.
He said:
God’s will is for us to love and trust Him in all things. The end.
NOW, I’ve been worrying and struggling and fighting with God’s will for the better part of 10 years, so when he said that, I was pretty disappointed. But then he continued talking and by the end of service, I decided this was a life-changing service for me. Basically, it’s pretty easy, and I have no idea WHY I’ve struggles with this.
God’s will 101: It’s not a destination, it’s here and now. He wants us to love and trust Him in real time. Now. He gives us free will to choose and once we choose, He wants us to love and trust Him in that choice.
Our preacher used this example:
Say you like girl A, but you like girl B and C too. Eventually you end up married to girl C. God’s will is that you love and trust Him in your relationship with girl C.
All this time I’ve been struggling with am I supposed to go into admin, or become a master Tech teacher, or move, or write something different, or… NONE of it matters. God’s will is for me to love and trust him with my current reality, whatever that reality is. And to continue to love and trust Him when I make my choices.
WOW!
How liberating.
