Not following me, well let me explain it a little more with examples. I, Heather am a control freak when it comes to D, and my children. I like things done my way, the way I see them being done, and if you don't' do it my way, and you make a mistake, I will be sure to let you know that it could have all been avoided if you would have just listened to me. (As if I have so much wisdom in me) In more ways than I can count I have hurt the people I love the most, all because I "think" "my way" is the "best" way.
HIS Daily Teachings today was to remind me that the only thing I need to be doing is seeking HIM. HE is wanting me to know that when I seek HIM in everything I think, say and do, I will do what is good, pleasing and honoring to HIM. HE is wanting me to know that instead of arguing with someone when I "think" I am right, I must let go, and praise, them, and HIM. I must seek HIM and let HIM show me how to navigate in the conversation I am having. HE is telling me that in seeking, HIM, I am in turn seeking peace. I am learning that when I seek peace, HIS peace, it brings much more positive outcome, and I will have the right attitude to PRAISE HIM. I know that this is all possible when I am choosing daily to be seeking HIM, in everything I think say and do. This is why I BELIEVE HE keeps teaching me that I must seek HIM and ask HIM to teach, lead, and guide me through every single moment of my journey with HIM.

in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight." Proverbs 3:5-6
