Continuing my infrequent Lenten quotation posting, came across this today…
“There are two kinds of people: those who say to God, ‘Thy will be done,’ and those to whom God says, ‘All right, then, have it your way.'”
—C. S. Lewis (1898–1963)
My, oh my, does this one grab me by the throat. Our doing God’s will is not a passive activity in which we either submit to God’s will or not. It is an active, moment-by-moment decision in which we either settle for having it our way (and all that implies) or seeking and surrendering to God’s will.
Hoping today is a day I and you say “Thy will be done!”
