It occurred to me this morning that sometimes my internal drive for success is really a fear that God won't provide. If I'm successful, I have the money-home-food-comfort-things I need and I don't have to be afraid of doing without. If I'm not successful, who knows what will happen? So the thought goes. But I know it's not real. It's not needed. It's just fear talking. The reality--which I have experienced over and over again--is that God *does* provide and God *is* faithful and God has a plan in place. I can (and do) release my fear-driven quest for success and let God show me how to give my gifts. "Concerning the work of my hands, Lord, command ye me." :)
