I have been reading in the book of James recently and a thought struck me. James is writing to the twelve tribes that are scattered among the nations. James 1:6 says, “But when he asks, he must believe and not doubt, because he who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind.” At times it might feel like you are being tossed around as a wave in the sea, are you asking and truly setting aside doubts? God does have a plan and a purpose for your life.
I think most of the time it is hard to give our lives over to someone we not only can’t see, but one we can’t touch. However, we must remember that God does want a relationship with us. He wants us to love Him because we want to love Him, not just because we are created and made by Him. God gave his creation free will because true love is something given freely because it can’t be held back. True love is God’s gift to us and our gift back to God.
