THURSDAY OF THE FIFTH WEEK OF LENT
I recently saw a banner in a local church that said “Redesigned by Christ”. It struck me that there were areas of my life that have been and still could be redesigned by Christ. His design of me was perfect but I felt the need to tweak it in an effort to control certain aspects of my life. Of course, I know what is best for me, right?
We feel the need to control many aspects of our lives and at times find that we are successful but only to a point. Finances, health, peace of mind, relationships all can be stable and with a sudden miss-step, all is lost and we cannot find a way to re-gain control.
Once we’ve lost control, what we should seek is for Christ to redesign our perspective and to offer up the situation to Him. But it is not easy to let go of a situation that we believe has a huge impact on our lives. When we give total control to Christ in any situation and seek His guidance we re-gain the stability we felt was lost.
Christ gave up total control to our Heavenly Father to die on the cross for us. Could there be any situation we face any more difficult than that? I am challenged and challenge all of us to give control of every aspect of life each day to Christ so that we not only find peace and stability but also know the will of God in our lives.
