There are so many times that it seems this life is nothing more than a game. We must determine what pieces should be moved and if we choose wrong, we pay the price.
There are other times that we feel that we are nothing more than pawns and some cosmic force is sending us around the board against our will.
Either way, we are unskilled in the rules. We are ill-equipped to play. We are out of practice and over-matched.
And so, today, we ask that you would help us understand the point. Give us insight into the plan. Lead us in your wisdom that we might win, even one small battle.
