"The deepest spiritual lessons are not learned by His letting us have our way in the end, but by His making us wait, bearing with us in love and patience until we are able honestly to pray what He taught His disciples to pray:

'Thy Will Be Done'."

~Elisabeth Elliot

a reminder to myself

it's so easy to praise God when things are good.
it's hard to do so when things aren't.
i'm determined....
to have peace.
to love God.
to embrace lessons learned.
to never stop growing.
to have faith.
to believe that...
"no good thing does the Lord withhold
from those who walk uprightly."
(psalm 84:11)
to hold on to Jesus.
to praise God.
it seems so easy when it's written out in list form...
let's see if i, by His strength, can make it happen.
