“If it be consistent with thy eternal counsels,
the purpose of thy grace,
and the great ends of thy glory,
then bestow upon me the blessings of thy comforts;
If not, let me resign myself to thy wiser determinations.”
What an attitude! What a perspective! When I am rubbed raw by experience, my comfortable environment is shattered by awkwardness or animosity. When my attitude proclaims like Nebuchadnezzar, “I AM IN CONTROL.” then crumbles into a feral sabbatical. I can resign myself to know that You have THE WISER DETERMINATION. You know what is best for me and you do not hinder to employ Your plan in my life.
