I'm introducing today's MMM with another quote. GK Chesterton said that, "The riddles of God are more satisfying that the solutions of men." And while that's true, it sure is hard to swallow sometimes. I know I struggle with with holding on too tightly to anything that keeps me feeling like I am in control of my own life, when I should be accepting with open hands God's will for my life. I used to be afraid to pray that His will would be done in my life, because His will is unknown and unpredictable. But somewhere in my journey that fear went away, mostly, and I can pray with unclenched hands that His will be done, because I do believe, He is good. All the challenges deepen our relationship with Him and we really can trust Him with our lives.
