My two dearest friends, Robin and Nancy, and I have been emailing each other every day and sharing something we have learned from our quiet times. It’s an accountability group called Good Morning Girls. (By the way, if you are a reader and would like to join our group, we would love to have you.)
I really didn’t have a current reading plan so I just started with Psalm 1. Every day I read another one and I have really been enjoying it. Today, I read Psalm 16 and it really spoke to me about accepting whatever God saw fit to give to me…good or bad. I want to willingly receive anything from His hand.
I came across this quote from Joni Eareckson Tada who has been battling breast cancer.
I want to assure you that I am genuinely content to receive from God whatever He deems fit for me even if it is from His left hand because better something from His left hand than no hand at all, right?
I would love to say that I would respond the same way. But, would I?
