Acceptance with Joy is a goal and not an easy one for me to achieve. I believe in Divine Order and that there is a perfect plan for my life. I also believe that all things work for good and it is within this framework that I strive to cooperate to align my life situations to my beliefs.
I mentioned in past posts that many of my “aha” moments have usually come in my rear view mirror when I have seen that difficult situations have resulted in great blessings in my life. I am again at that cross roads where I am choosing to trust that God uses all situations for my good and wants to renew and restore me. I can accept with resignation or I can choose to cooperate with Joy. Today I am choosing to cooperate using the Joy of the Lord as my strength. With Him, all things are possible.
