(Need to start at the beginning? Day 1)

I don’t know how many times I’ve heard someone say, “You’re not the boss of me!” Often jokingly said, but it revealed a heart attitude.

We sure do have an independent streak. It’s a personal urge and a common cultural call. Be yourself! Go for it! Don’t let anyone tell you what to do!

You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. 1 Corinthians 6:19b-20a ESV

It takes a certain kind of humility to follow someone else’s lead, to submit to an authority.

I’ll own that I like my way better. My preferences rock. 🙂  But, honestly, there was a time that I lived mostly for myself, and it was not particularly pretty. There is incredible wisdom and blessing that comes with following God and doing life His way, even when the road gets a bit bumpy.

What struggles do you have in letting God be the boss of you? Where and how do you struggle?
