Lenten Reflection #32:Dependent
Psalm 62:7 NIV
I am dependent. I spent a great deal of my life trying to show myself and everyone else that I could be independent. I tried most of my youth and early adult years trying to prove to other that I could do it all by myself. Independence was what I thought it meant to grow up. Be my own man. Depend on no one but myself.
Boy, was I wrong. I am dependent on God. Without Him I am nothing. Without Him I can do nothing.
Sure, I can balance my checkbook and I can dress myself. I hold down a job. I have the independence of being able to care for myself. Yet, I am dependent upon God for everything. He is my rock and my refuge. Everything I am, everything I will be and everything I have is because of Him.
In Christ's love and mine,
