On the radio the other day I heard the words of this classic from Sinatra. As I was listening numerous sermons and talks came to mind where the idea of ‘doing things my way’, sometimes with this song as an illustration, were portrayed as being negative because, of course, it should be God’s way not my way.
Over two decades of youth ministry I have lost count of the number of conversations that go something like ‘I’d really love to do this, but how can I be sure it’s God’s will for my life … it seems it’s too good to be true cos I have dreamed of doing this …’
if God created me,
and Jesus lives within me
is it not possible that
can be the same?
