I am not a self-reliant man. I am a God-reliant man.

Are there places in your life where you do not bring in the Lord? Places where you feel that your own strength is sufficient and so you do not call for help? These are the excellent places where you already feel confident.

I am finding that those areas in which I previously felt comfortable and confident and therefore did not seek God's help are now falling behind the areas in which I constantly sought the Lord. My weaknesses have become my strengths and many of my strengths have become my weaknesses.

It is a strange time in my life. I know what I need to do though. I need to admit the Lord into ALL areas of my life so that He may fulfill His plans.

I think we are all guilty of that one. I know I often don't bother God with the trivial....even though we are told over and over that we should.

It's always a battle to let Him in everything. First, most of us are control freaks at some level and want to keep some things to run ourselves AND, like you said, we often don't want to bother him with the "little stuff."
