I have decided to take the path of faith;
I have focused my eyes on Your regulations. Psalm 119:30 (VOICE)
Facebook is a wonderful tool to keep in touch with friends and family. It also holds the capacity to eat up hours of your day in a flash. As I scroll the events of the day, I can see how others have been spending their time. My messages may contain invitations to join a group or play a game. 'Friends' share links to other sites that they have found interesting. Many times they are. - That's how it becomes a time waster.
The links that offer quizzes and enlighten us on ourselves are fun. I recently took a quiz that would reveal what type of woman I 'really' am. I answered the questions (some of which seemed to have little ability to learn the truth about who I am.
Upon completion of the questions, the revelation came to the light. I am a 'True Independent Woman.' Hmmm, this assessment need to be evaluated for its accuracy. It is true that I prefer being self-sufficient. The ability to figure things out and do things for myself brings a bit of gratification. It doesn't, however, make me 'independent.'
I am one hundred percent dependent on Jesus Christ to help me to do the things that I could never accomplish in my own ability. The relationship with my husband is one of inter-dependence. Our lives are one. I would not be the person that I am if I had not married him. I depend on my son to be a young man that will live honorably. My mom, family, friends, church family, co-workers... I depend on God to protect all these people that mean so much to me.
Whatever I am... however 'independent' I appear to be, is the result of total reliance on God. Daily, I choose to surrender all control to Him. I cannot boast in anything because all I do is by the Lord's design. I can live in confidence (which may appear to be independence) because I know He knows His plans for me. All I need to do is give Him my love and obedience, leaving the results in His hands.
