Yesterday we talked about facing change and dealing with difficulty in our lives.  Sometimes there is nothing we can do about a particular thing.  The natural human response to that is to complain and be angry that God isn't making my life happy.

There is another approach, and that is to trust in God, regardless of circumstances.

Here is the prayer that we concluded the service with:  "Father, if this is the new reality; let me see the good in it.  Let me learn to find the joy in that which I cannot control.  Give me your peace that passes understanding. In Jesus name, Amen.”

It's a beautiful day in God's world, be sure to see the good.

Jeff - thanks so much for posting and sharing this with us. I feel surrounded by negativity at work right now, and I have passed this on to my coworkers as a way to have a different perspective on the situation. This is going on the honored place right about my computer screen with some of your other blog posts that have really touched my heart in a profound way.
Thank you for continuing to bless us with your thoughts and perspectives!! Inkylynne
