I thought today was Wednesday

It turns out it was Thursday all day. For some reason, I spent the day thinking it was Wednesday. I should have known because my favorite day is Jeans Friday. This is the special day at corporate America that you can wear jeans and be cool.

I wish I didn't struggle with this balance of my decisions and God's sovereignty. I guess if I really believed His Sovereign control, I would try to make wise decisions and ultimately believe that He would work all those things to good. Some people can just sit back and believe that God is going to make things happen. I believe that, to the point that I think He can put things in my life to make me get up and make things happen. Like, there is something out there that is mine, I have to go get it. Not in a selfish way, serving myself, but there is something He has out there for me to experience, I have to make moves to get there. It's really neat how we humans are, we tend to want to cling to people close to us when we go through seasons of decision. We listen a lot better during these times, we enjoy time spent with friends a little more, we eat a little slower.

Hey! I don't know if you even knew that I read this but I do! In light of your recent posts about decision making I'd like to offer this: I don't know how much of a reader you are but this book is short and a quick read. You won't be able to put it down and I promise that it will blow you away. It will challenge how you view God, Jesus, and the Spirit and our ideas on what His sovereignty means. I don't believe it all hook line and sinker but it has most definitely caused me to question "my" ideas and that is always good. A genuine search for Truth will always lead us back to Him. The book is called "The Shack" by William P. Young. Check it out and let me know what you think!
