When Things Don't Go The Way You Would Like...

This is from a devotion book my wife reads to me at night. It was the devotion from Monday, when I learned that God wanted me to be patient and just wait on Him in some things I was going through in my personal life. I hope it encourages you today as well. 

"When things don't go as you would like, accept the situation immediately.  If you indulge in feelings of regret, they can easily spill over the line into resentment.  Remember that I am sovereign over your circumstances, and humble yourself under my mighty hand.  Rejoice in what I am doing in your life, even though it is beyond your understanding.
I am the Way, the Truth and the Life.  In me you have everything you need, both for this life and for the life yet to come.  Don't let the impact of the world shatter your thinking or draw you away from focusing on Me.  The ultimate challenge is to keep fixing your eyes on Me, no matter what is going on around you.  When I am central in your thinking, you are able to view circumstances from my perspective."
I Peter 5:6 & John 14:6

& Tim
