You aren’t God. Stop shouldering responsibilities and burdens that are his.
You aren’t God. Stop trying to define and control circumstances that are beyond your understanding and power.
You aren’t God. Stop judging other people’s hearts when you don’t even fully know your own.
You are his servant. His plans and purposes for you are gracious and light, because he shoulders them with you.
You are his friend. You get to know what’s on his mind for you, and not worry about what’s not.
You are his child. You have the opportunity every day to receive and give away the infinite inheritance of his love.
“Why am I discouraged? Why is my heart so sad? I will again put my hope in God, and praise him. He will restore the smile to my face” (Psalm 43:5).
