"When a soul recognises the will of God and shows a readiness to submit to it entirely, then God gives Himself to such a soul and renders it most powerful succour under all circumstances." - Rev. Jean-Pierre de Caussade

Story behind the name

Logan and I have been trying to think of a new blog name for awhile,  but we could never agree on anything. We finally settled on this one - the first one we agreed on that wasn't already taken.

Matthew West is my favorite Christian musician - has been for years (and if you bring me to one of his concerts, I'll love you forever). One of his songs, "Out of My Hands," used to be my all-time favorite, and I used to say if I had to pick a song to describe my life, it'd be the one. The words "into your will" is part of the chorus.

We decided on the new blog yesterday. This morning before mass, I was looking at the readings and noticed the responsorial psalm was "Here am I, Lord, I come to do your will." Then I noticed one of the opening prayers included the words "Help us to embrace your will." I'm pretty sure we picked the right blog name. :)

There you go changing my plans again 
There you go shifting my sands again 
For reasons I don't understand again 
Lately I don't have a clue 

Just when I start liking what I see 
There you go changing my scenery 
I never know where you're taking me 
But I'm trying just to follow you 

It's out of my hands 
It's out of my reach 
It's over my head 
And it's out of my league 
There's too many things 
That I don't understand 
So it's into your will 
And it's out of my hands 
              - part of Matthew West's song "Out of My Hands"
