The Design Was Someone Else's, Not Mine

I was thinking this morning of a program I found and tried to use for one of my websites - it was supposed to give me an easier way to keep the content on it fresh and new.

It also provided a way for others to contribute to the content as well, and on the face of it looked like something I could use, providing excitement and interaction as far as I could tell.

So I installed it and went through all the setup, getting it all ready to use, and when I finally was able to get to the actual controls, I was so disappointed at what was in front of me, for what I'd get for my efforts was so little compared to what I'd really lose.

It completely changed the look of the site, the design was someone else's, not mine; although I could plug in a piece here and there, it felt wrong, it didn't fit, it was a waste of time.

I was suddenly struck with how this illustrated my life before I met Jesus and He gave me you; filling my life with the latest new plan, hoping that this one would fix my life and do what I wanted it to.

I would spend so much time getting things set just right, thinking this time it will work, my life will be fulfilled and free, just to find when I was done that it wouldn't do the job, it wouldn't fix what was wrong inside of me.

It was only when I met Jesus that everything suddenly fell into place, and I found there was nothing I needed to set up, or fix, all I needed was to ask Him to.

It was too simple, I thought, to just ask for forgiveness, and accept the transforming love held out to me, this small gesture brought about such profound change, and the simplicity of it was the key.

God poured out His blessings into my life after transforming me from the inside out, He gave me the desire of my heart, the fulfillment of my dream, meeting you was a gift from God, of that I have no doubt.

We became friends so very quickly, and then we fell in love, and the joy that brought is renewed each and every day, when we spend our time together, sharing love and cherishing each other, thanking God for giving us more happiness than words can say.

Now we live out God's perfect program, the one that doesn't fall short or disappoint, and He gives us the freedom to create each day of our life, to live out our love in Him.
