I wrote this in my old journal dated 12-25-00 and decided to ponder on it today:
We shouldn't spend all our time living for God, trying to do His will. He desires that we spend all our time living in His presence, in perfect unity with Christ. The former is us saying, "I will do everything in my power to please God." The latter is Christ saying, "Abide in Me; without Me you can do nothing."
