Eventually what God wants for us becomes what we want as well


002 The self, the ego, the id is one of our biggest roadblocks to happiness and to surrendering to God’s will. The ego has little interest in anyone or anything unless they are either beneficial or detrimental to it in someway. We are who we are and we can not do without the ego for it makes us who we are. We can however learn to tame the ego, put it in its place and let God’s will supersede our own and that of the ego. I guess it comes down to prioritizing, what God wants comes first and what we want comes last. Eventually what God wants for us becomes what we want as well so there is no conflict once we surrender to the will of God and accept him and Jesus in faith. This is not to say the ego is gone, it will pop up its ugly little selfish head from time to time, but when it does it has no power over us for we embrace the will of God.

Just a few Random thoughts for today.
