It took many years of resisting and fighting my circumstances before I discovered I was really opposing the Lord. When I surrendered my will to God completely was the day I also relinquished my continuous battle against my life situation.
The absurdity that I needed to change my environment only kept me from focusing on Him and hindered me from experiencing His peace and joy. Now I am able to be content with the events occurring around me and immerse myself in fellowship with the Lord.
I am so grateful that I don’t have to fix other people anymore. My prayer is that God will transform and conform me to His ways and use my circumstances as the instruments of change and transition.
