Who Is In Control of My Life?

"The desire to be God rather than to serve God lies at the bottom of every sin that anyone has ever committed. Sin is rooted in my unwillingness to find joy in living my life under the authority of, and for the glory of Another. Sin is rooted in my desire to live for me. It's driven by my propensity to indulge my every feeling, satisfy my every desire, and meet my every need." Whiter Than Snow - Paul David Tripp
I love these devotions (thanks Belinda) as God has used them to really show me my heart and my need for a Savior! I confess I so want to live for myself - do what I want to do and it's often a struggle of surrender to my Lord.
"You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body." 1 Cor 6:19-20
"Thank You Lord Jesus for loving me in spite of my wanting to be in control of my life; for wanting to do it my way. May the power of Your blood allow me to surrender my all to you day by day."
