How is it, after so many years and so much experience, I still make the mistake of thinking that peace comes through control - when everything in my life and Scripture tells me it comes actually through surrender?
It's not, "Give me strength, Lord!", but "Lord, be strength in me!"
Not, "Give me wisdom!", but "Be wisdom in me!"
Not, "Lord, enable me to truly love!", but "You, Lord, love through me!"
