"Your will be done"

Sofias 1 year Birthday celebration

Me with my filipino aunty.

I am learning to walk by faith and not to look on what is MY plan for my life, but what God has in PLAN for me. I can be sometimes too much self centered that I forget who actually created me and what is my purpose. In steps to Christ, EGW wrote "The warfare against self is the greatest battle that was ever fought." The yielding of self, surrendering all to the will of God, requires a struggle; but the soul must submit to God before it can be renewed in holiness." Paul wrote of this battle in Romans 7:15 "I do not understand my own actions. For I do not what I want, but I do the very thing that I hate" Paul seems to be in despair about this war in his heart. He says:"I know that nothing good dwells in me, that is, in my flesh." The most hardest is to pray that Jesus prayed in Gethsemane: "Your will be done."
