I just started reading a new book tonight called "Scale Down" by Danna Demetre. It has the following quote in the first chapter:
"We are in danger of forgetting that we can not do what God does, and that God will not do what we can do". - Oswald Chambers
There are things I have absolutely no control over. God is in complete control in those areas. There are areas however that I do have some responsibility and I can't expect God to just take care of them without doing my part.
There are many areas of my life that I'm sure this could apply to. The first that I thought of was dieting. The second is parenting.
Just some interesting stuff for my brain to chew on tonight.
