I noticed this morning on my commute how everyone wants to be in front. Drivers do all sorts of things with their vehicles to position themselves in front of others drivers, sometimes risky their life for a few second advantage. Which most of the time just means they get to the traffic light sooner and get to idle longer !
By the way, unfortunately, I count myself in this rat race. It’s just a tell take symptom of how we all want to have things our way.
Would it not be better if we decided to yield our will? What would happen if instead of pushing out will around we made our mantra ‘your will, your way’?
Hm, we have a pretty good example of that from the one we profess to follow.
He withdrew about a stone’s throw beyond them, knelt down and prayed, “Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done.” An angel from heaven appeared to him and strengthened him. And being in anguish, he prayed more earnestly, and his sweat was like drops of blood falling to the ground. (Luke 22:41-44 NIV)
Give this one some time and thought today and start yielding to the will of the Father.
It will make your commute less stressful as well!
