Amazing how just when you think “Okay, God, I guess this is it. I give up. Your will be done…”, He replies with “Hey, dear child, look what I have for you.”

And you realize He presents you with exactly what you were longing for.

That’s what I wrote this morning on my Facebook.

The day passed in a daze. I did work, but it took more conscious effort on my part to actually make myself do something.

(To avoid sounding super-spiritual and holy, humbling myself doesn’t come easy and there’s a lot of *sigh* involved.)

The main thing now is to actually remember that lesson when something else comes along, and I start worrying about His timing.
