How many of us really consider it a gift when all we have is God?
This is not the case, most of the times; we usually have multiple options, & yes, one of them is running to God.
But some other times God is *really* the only option we have. And I ask, how do you like it?
I must say that many times I used to feel frustrated when this happened. I didn't take it as a privilege. I used to feel as if this has been imposed on me! And the truth is that, to some degree, it has been. But, out of love. Out of love and mercy the Lord had to take away all the other options in order to help me.
You see, we are hungry for control. We are desperate to control life but the truth is that we are not very good at it... And God, knowing this, just wants to help us, so every time we'll ask Him to take over, He will allow Himself to withdraw all the other options from the list when He sees that it's not helping us and that we are not putting Him as the default option. It is to help us, then, that He takes away all the other options.
God is the ultimate Teacher & He uses this technique to educate us to run to Him always as a first source of help. Little by little we learn to lean on Him and overtime He does become our default option to run to.
As the years go by, God has really become my default option. I find myself talking to Him often and spontaneously about absolutely everything, everywhere. He has become my Best Friend and my Love, my true Refuge, and my wise & loving Counsellor. And so, today, when I'm faced with situations where He's the only option, I'm reminded that He is, indeed and actually, the best and only option I should choose anyway. I'm reminded that He has the true control of everything, and every time He's the option, be it by choice or by Providence, I am blessed anew by His guidance and light.
Now, this doesn't mean that His ways are easy or pleasant. Sometimes they aren't, and it's because they goes against our nature of sinful inclinations. But His ways are secure, and give us peace. The outcome is always good, beyond what we could ever ask or imagine 🙌✨ #God #Godisincontrol #gift #control #controlfreak #defalut #giveittoGod #letGod
