God’s Will–Not Our Own

There is little these days that comes out of Hollywood that I find to be “sage advice” so when I read this from Reba McIntyre, it lightened my heart. 

Reba told us she’s paid attention to “all of the political things going on” but as an entertainer, she refrains from preaching her beliefs onto others.

“I’m an entertainer and I don’t get into politics. I never have,” she said. “It’s like my faith. I teach by example so I don’t preach to people. I just tell them how great my… relationship is with the Lord.”

The 61-year-old said she did pray to God during the election to “put the right person” into office.

“I pray for God’s way and not my way. I know that God’s got the right path and the right plan.

Indeed.  It is a timely reminder that we should not ask for God to be on our side but that we seek His Will for our lives.
