1. Suffer doing what is right and have peace and joy being surrendered to God.
2. Have temporary happiness doing my own thing and then suffer greatly with regret because I was not surrendered to God and our relationship has been strained.
Put another way...
1. Accept the fact that I am blind in and of myself and I need to wait for my Guide to lead me in safety, peace and joy with Him.
2. Do what seems right to me even though I have not sought God's will or heard from Him yet and end up wandering around aimlessly or getting trapped.
