A Rebel's Heart

Taking a brief moment from work to decompress. I’m frustrated. A task was assigned to me that I don’t like, don’t see the point in, and – to be frank – I am not a fan of. 

Why should I be stuck with this assignment!?

I find myself reflecting on the greater implications at play. Spiritual obedience to God our Father is required, regardless of our understanding of the whole project. The difference is that God’s plans will never take advantage of us; on the contrary, they are in place for our good and God’s glory. How we should WORSHIP Jesus that He is perfect and His plans will never harm us!

“Fallen man is not simply an imperfect creature who needs improvement: he is a rebel who must lay down his arms.”
–C. S. Lewis, Mere Christianity (New York: HarperCollins, 1952/2001), 56.
