Am I in Control?

If I trust only when it is easy,
I am in control.
If I obey only when I want to,
I am in control.
If I worship only by my choice in my own way,
I am in control.
If I rejoice only when I am happy,
I am in control.
If I offer thanks only when life is good,
I am in control.
If I submit only to God’s mercy and not to His chastisement,
I am in control.
If I do only what I excel at naturally,
I am in control.
If I rely on the praise of men for my self-esteem,
I am in control.
It is not enough to do these things in my own power, strength, and control. It is not enough to pick and choose when I will submit or what I will or will not do. God is sovereign, and His Will will be accomplished, with or without my cooperation. The question is, will I flow with God in His Will and enjoy the ride, or will I fight Him and be miserable?
