whether i'd like to admit it or not, i've depended on other people all my life. my family especially and also friends. we were never meant to do this life alone. but depending fully on other people, humans who will inevitably fail, for life, joy, spiritual growth, love, everything, is not how we were meant to be. we were made to depend on God for everything. not just what we're willing to give up. He calls us to surrender everything and depend on Him. He will never fail you. He has our best in mind at all times. He turns all bad into our good. why would you want to depend on someone who will eventually fail in some capacity, as all us humans do, when you could depend on Someone who will never leave you? through various circumstances, i'm learning just how vital this concept is. how even though i'd rather not admit it, i still depend on other things other than God, especially for my spiritual growth and wellbeing and fullness feeling. and that He will always be there, my solid Rock, my Counselor, my Shepherd. that no matter what i'm going through, He will guide me and keep me. i can depend on Him.
so my question to you again is who/what are you depending on?
