And it does often look like that. Taking charge of one's life is a huge task. One that will never be finished. So in a sense, I'm completely correct in thinking that I'm doing something impossible. But... that should never stop any one of us.
It's something that we have to learn to live with. We have to accept that we'll always be doing more, learning more, changing. We won't ever be masters of taking charge of our lives.
But... one day, you will come to the point where you're master of your life.
It won't happen with fireworks and fanfare. It's just something that will occur to you. Hey... I'm owning my life and handling it responsibly. I'm following God's plan, not only for me, but my role in God's bigger picture.
It's a truly special feeling. One that I truly hope that every one of you will get to experience one day.
