We have two choices, a life that has meaning by our own hands, or a life that has meanings from the hands of God. If we choose life by our own hands, we are saying that I can find peace and happiness on my own. If we choose life under the authority of God, we say to God that he can control our lives and in all circumstance we can trust that he will take care of us. Under God’s authority we can find hope in all things, but in our own hands, the only hope is in what we choose to do next. If we choose to control our own life, than we are saying that we are god. We are saying that we know ourselves better than God. Seeing my track record of how life is when I choose to control it, I would rather submit to the authority of God any day.
