“The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.”
I got the message early in childhood that it was up to me to make my life go the way I wanted. That seemed true both in terms of success, and in battling any perceived injustice done to me. I spent a lot of time and energy trying to avenge myself and prove myself right. When I was young I didn’t know any better, but thankfully now I’ve learned better. God wants to take care of everything – He’s just waiting for me to get out of the way!
