I Can’t Solve God Sized Situations with Man Sized Solutions

As I was riding my bike up the Cedar Valley Nature Trail this morning, I was thinking about how I so often expend energy trying to bring man sized solutions to God sized situations. In other 2015-08-17 11.19.53words, I try to fix things that only God can resolve. So as I pulled in next to the old feed store in Lafayette, Iowa, I sat at the bench and concluded that I was doing a good thing today. I was out getting some exercise and enjoying the grandeur of God’s creation. Working more, strategizing more efficiently, thinking proactively just won’t solve things that only God can fix. So I decided to rest and enjoy the sights, sounds, and smells of being outside! “And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together. And he is the head of the body, the church. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in everything he might be preeminent (Col 1:17-18; ESV).
