A post I made on the Rebelution Forum… thought I’d re-post it here:
We have a dog.
His name is Eeyore.
Now Eeyore loves to go on walks. But more often than not, he wants to go where he wants to go, not where I want him to go. It makes me wonder – how often do we do this to God? Do we ever say “Sure, God, I’ll go wherever – as long as I want to go there. As long as I can follow. Just please, don’t go where I can’t follow.” God created us, He knows what’s best for us, right?
We moved across the ocean a little over a year ago. At first, I really didn’t want to go. But now that we’re here, I like life better. God knew what He was doing when my dad got a job over here.
Food for thought:
– Why do we believe we can’t follow where God is taking us?
– Why do we pull the leash in another direction?
– And what should we do when God wants us to go somewhere we don’t want to go?
