Being Submissive

How do we submit our will to God? This was the topic of the addiction recovery class today. These words from Christ help me express one of the main things I learned…

“[Jesus] kneeled down, and prayed, saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done” (Luke 22:41–42).

Even when his own natural desire was different, Christ’s submission to Heavenly Father’s was evident through what He decided.  This gives me hope! I often don’t naturally want what God wants for me; however, I can nevertheless choose His will over mine :)

I heard HWN today through a better understanding of how to be submissive.

p.s. I got to make and have dinner with these awesome guys :) and play a couple of rounds of nerts afterwards!
