acquiesce \ak-wee-ES\, intransitive verb:
To accept or consent passively or without objection -- usually used with 'in' or 'to'.
Acquiesce is my favorite word. I love the way it sounds. I love the way it looks written out. And it means to give in without arguing.
But it's something I have a hard time doing. The last few days have found me thinking about it a lot and wondering why it's such a challenge for me to acquiesce, especially to the Lord. He has my best in mind and I can trust Him completely. Yet I fight. I want my way. My time. My plan.
Why can't I acquiesce to Cale? Why do I always have to have an opinion about everything? Why does what I want always have to be the most important? Why am I so selfish?
No answers tonight. Just questions and the weight of them on my heart.
