Bending Your Heart

Here's a paragraph from The Praying Life by Paul Miller that really spoke to me:

When you stop trying to control your life and instead allow your anxieties and problems to bring you to God in prayer, you shift from worry to watching. You watch God weave his patterns in the story of your life. Instead of trying to be out front, designing your life, you realize you are inside of God's drama. As you wait, you being to see him work, and your life begins to sparkle with wonder. You are learning to trust again.

Very nice thought. Love it. It reminds me of the chapter I'm reading in my Hope devotional on God's Sovereignty. I like all the descriptive words in the paragraph you shared: weave, pattern, design, sparkle, wonder.

Is your life sparkling??
