Focus: Have Thine Own Way
Song: Have thine own way, Lord. Have thine own way.
Thou art the Potter, I am the clay.
Mold me and make me after Thy will,
While I am waiting, yielded and still.
I literally had to use this song for today. While doing my morning prayer of thanksgiving, I just started singing the song “Have Thine Own Way” out of the blue. So I decided to to use it as my focus.
Wow! What a day! I got the news of the week. Apparently, a close acquaintance of mine wants something that belongs to be. She wants or wanted to take a mentee away from me and I found out. I was hurt because I like the young lady. She’s fun and has a great personality.
Why is it that I expect the best from persons? Now, I have to pretend that I don’t know what she tried to do. Do you want to know the worse thing? A friend of mine betrayed my trust some weeks ago and I was devastated. Now add this to it, I almost lost faith in people.
I thank God for sending me a friend who I could pour out into and who reminded me to give it to God.
That’s what I did. I gave it to God. Normally, I would have wanted to sort these things out myself and think about the quickest way to reach my decided end result. But I’m letting God sort it out.
