Not my will, but thine, be done

I have a gift that was given to me by my creator. My creator isn’t just like anybody on this earth; He’s not your significant other, children, parents, family, friends, or acquaintances. He’s the almighty ruler that created the very people we love and the world in which we live in. See when I was in the dark, He gave me light. When I was at the bottom, He raised me up. He raised me up just like he raised up his son Jesus (He who had no sin), on the third day from the cross. Nevertheless, it is not my will, but thine, be done (Luke 22:42, KJV)

The obstacles that came my way only made me stronger. I realized some obstacles were inevitable because I had inflicted that same type of hurt on others. I needed to feel that same pain so I would never do those things again. I did not know then what I know now. I’m not perfect and my mistakes don’t make me or define me as a person. The only way you can learn in life is by living through experiences. Although you have to be careful reliving your past will never let you enjoy your present and build up your future. The majority of our disappointments we bring them upon ourselves because we are not living for His will. We live for our own will so when things didn’t meet our expectations we got disappointed. We can experience His glory if we would live for His will. God is the only one that can truly fulfill our deepest needs and desires.

In order to be able to live by God’s will we have to accept His son Jesus Christ. He is the way, the water of life… “One day Jesus was walking through Samaria. He was weary, so He rested at Jacob’s well. In the heat of the day, a woman came to draw some water. The Bible says: “Jesus said to her, ‘Give Me a drink.’ The woman of Samaria said to Him, ‘How is it that You, being a Jew, ask a drink from me, a Samaritan woman?’ Jesus answered and said to her, ‘If you knew the gift of God, and who it is who says to you, “Give me a drink,” you would have asked Him, and He would have given you living water.’ The woman said to Him, ‘Sir, You have nothing to draw with, and the well is deep. Where then do You get that living water? Are You greater than our father Jacob, who gave us the well, and drank from it himself, as well as his sons and his livestock?’ Jesus answered and said to her, ‘Whoever drinks of this water will thirst again, but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life’” (John 4:7-14, NKJV).

For those of you that do not understand I will clarify the meaning for you. The water Jesus is talking about is not actual water but us holding onto him and believing in him. When we walk with Jesus, we are walking with my Father (God). Along our walk with them we will never miss anything because they already know what we need before we do. Therefore, they will provide everything beforehand. And although our bodies will die for our sins, the Holy Spirit will give us eternal life.
