This morning, I sat down to my computer and felt moved to watch a sermon message. I watch a variety of sermons online being unable to currently attend my local church in person due to my disease. So I went to Living Stones Church in Kona, Hawaii. It's funny, when I saw the sermon title and as I listened, I thought "well, this doesn't apply to me as much anymore...I know I'm not in control of my life...this sermon applies more to other people..."
But as I listened further, I realized that the sermon message indeed applies and it served as a humbling reminder that I can't control everything, I can't play tug o' war for control with God. I can't win God's favor doing all the right things (that includes blending Christianity into some of my artwork) and what I want in life isn't necessarily what God wants for me. Surrender is difficult. For everyone. Period.
So I'm sharing Pastor Ryan's most recent sermon because I feel it's useful and crucial in our true relationship with the One True God. God is good and He loves us all.
