We are not perfect beings. Far from it! (Phil 3:12-15, Ecc 7:20, for a few examples) The work we do is not perfect – it can’t be – because there is only one perfect being – God (et. al.). We humans strive to reach perfection; in some of us, even, perfectionism is such a huge issue that’s it’s crippling. When things don’t go right, our endeavors don’t perform, or events continuously deviate from our intended path, the sense of abject failure may create a desire to just… freeze, so we don’t fail anymore.
What do we mean when we say that God is eternal? Does he have a beginning, or just no end? How can we begin to comprehend what that means in our lives?
There’s more to trusting in the Lord than just saying a prayer and doing a few good works. It requires a whole life change.
God’s plans are often difficult for us to discern, but if we trust in Him, he will make our paths straight. God’s timing is unique and sometimes surprising!
