Now I take peace in the fact that it's all going to work out exactly the way it should. Although I feel like a pawn at times (what extent of free will can truly exist when we are nothing more than creations of a perfect God?), I've learned to accept my place. I will live with humility and let God sort out the rest. Will I live a sinless life? No. Will I continue to have weaknesses? Yes. Will this world get the best of me from time to time? Yes, but there is always comfort to be found through faith that God is running things. No matter what I am blessed with or what I lose, I will never covet the treasures of the earth more than God's kingdom. Real happiness/comfort on this earth comes from God alone.
Amen. We shall the worship the Creator, not the created.
