Humility trumps human will

A year and a half ago, my husband and I welcomed a baby boy into our family, and I learned what it truly means to “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding” (Proverbs 3:5). We had been diligently praying throughout the entire pregnancy and working with a Christian Science practitioner. By the time our little one was ready to arrive, we both felt prepared. I had been praying with many wonderful spiritual truths about man and our relationship to God. One of my favorite verses I prayed with is from Hymn 51 in the Christian Science Hymnal: 

God could not make imperfect manHis model infinite;Unhallowed thought He could not plan,Love’s work and Love must fit. (Mary Alice Dayton)
