Do you consider yourself a fix-it person? I’m not talking about unclogging a drain or stopping a dripping faucet. I mean in more personal matters, such as trying to repair relationships between people. Maybe you are and maybe you’ve been successful at times, but my track record isn’t so good. I’ve tried to be a peacemaker only to have both parties resent my attempts. I’ve tried to calm simmering angry words only to make matters worse. I’ve prayed for years for people to overcome their animosity toward one another, but to no avail. I’m still going to pray because all in God’s good timing, but as my pastor once said: “Get over yourself! You’re not God! You can’t fix it!” He’s right. Some things only God can fix.
