hell on earth:day three

[Reflecting on our definition of heaven, hell would be a place where God’s will is never done. Perhaps hell is a place where my will takes precedence over God’s will. What would that look like?]

This reminds me of the movie, “Bruce Almighty.” If you remember, Jim Carrey’s character, Bruce, is allowed to experience some of God’s powers for a while and so he does what most of us would do, he seeks to accomplish his own will. Unfortunately, what happens is, in a sense, all hell breaks loose, and there is a lot of chaos, confusion, and pain. I get the sense that when I start to place my will above God’s I become incredibly myopic and start to create a lot of selfish chaos, confusion and pain. I find myself becoming more isolated, more miserable and more frustrated. Why do I keep going back to that?
