Questions On A Monday Afternoon

Do you ever think about the fact that you don't have total control of your life? Perhaps you do? Oh, we'd like to think that we have it together and that we're in complete control of our lives, but are we? I'm thinking this because I know that there are plans and activities that I have in my mind to execute, but my body and spirit won't budge??? This leads me to believe that there is an opposing force holding me back. Perhaps it's just me?

Yes, a peculiar feeling isn't it.

There you are! Thanks for stopping by.

I'm the son of a Georgia preacher, but I should still know to look to God. I agree. Thanks. :)

Miss A-
You're right. This is why I pray for guidance and direction. Thanks.

I feel the same way! Sometimes I think it is God pulling us one way, and sometimes I agree with mwabi, and we are the only ones in our way! Somethings to think about, that is for sure!

I guess that we should just have faith that all things will eventually fall into place.

It isn't just you.

Nah, its not you. But look at it like this--the opposing force (whether real or in our heads) is a test, allowing us to realize if we really want to do what we planned to do.

Stephen A. Bess said...

That's always nice to know. I guess we feel alone about how we feel sometimes. Thanks.

Alright, a sort of grace period to help us sort our thoughts. I like that. Thanks.

I know that feeling. I think it's me in my case. We need to clear out our clutter and focus :-)

Stephen A. Bess said...

Yes, Focus!! Focus!! I'm feeling that. Thanks! :)
