Ticked off, frustrated and trying to get something done..
its not my kid’s fault…
but she has needs and
I am the one that must accommodate.
Arriving at the decision to adjust and temporarily
suspend my needs, wants, and preferences required thinking.
Acting badly and full of impatience was just natural.
Serving with a happy heart
required grace and consideration of how good God has been to us.
Obviously that’s God’s will.
I’m thankful for these verses:
Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect. Romans 12:2
Here’s the disciple life:
Under the influence of God’s Spirit and His Word,
we are commissioned to sort out (test & approve) what God’s will is.
In this process of making decisions we begin to
discern the will of God for each of us and for our community.
Sorting (testing, thinking and considering) is messier than most of us desire.
In some decisions God’s way seems obvious.
In some decisions God’s way seems obscure.
In all we have this grace: we may discern what
is good, acceptable, and perfect.
