oh wow, what devastation is brought by not following you. how could we ever think we could do better apart from you? wow lord, the human heart of trying to be independent of you, of trying to be the one calling the shots than you, of trying to politely include you in our lives but when it comes to the one calling the shots we reserve that right all to ourselves? thank you, God, for going before us! thank you, God, for being who you are, thank you that when we follow you, no such destruction will truly befall us, especially where it matters the most - in the spiritual. thank you for shifting our priorities, the more in line our hearts with you are. thank you, God!
