How do I want it to be?

C.S. Lewis observed that "There are two kinds of people: those who say to God 'Thy will be done' and those to whom God says, 'Alright then, have it your way'."

I am both people,... forever vacillating, forever changing. But what never changes are the consequences of my stand. Seeking and submitting to God's will is always by far the best, and ultimately a cause for celebration; stubbornly insisting on "MY way" is always filled with regret and often humiliation.
