Thy Will Be Done

I grow bored easily with my cell phone's background wallpaper so I make my own. I create the pictures on my computer and then upload them on my phone's micro SD card. This simple black and white picture is what I currently display on my phone.

For all of the uncertainties facing my life right now this short prayer is unimprovable. It signals the death of my self-will and my resignation into the hands of the Sovereignty of God. Whatever—wherever—my future is I want it to be in God's plan.

William Barclay rightly said that the most popular prayer is, "Thy will be changed," but the greatest prayer is, "Thy will be done."

Thy kingdom come,
Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
