I Can Do It Myself!

Given November 22, 2005
My three year-old granddaughter was putting on her coat before leaving and I went to fasten the buttons for her. She pulled away and exclaimed, "No, Pawpaw. I can do it myself!" I was frustrated because I knew she'd have a very difficult time with it but I let her go ahead and try. After a couple of unsuccessful attempts, she said, "Pawpaw, can you help me?"

I realized today that I am just like that with God sometime. He has a plan for me, provided a way for me to be successful at it, and wants to help me do it. But, many times, I say, "No, I'll do it myself!" Then when I make a mess of things or can't get it done, I'll go to Him and ask for His help. When am I, and you too, going to learn to let go of that silly pride and let God do what He wants to do with us? By faith, it's gonna be soon! I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. Phillipians 4:13
