This week I read an old anonymous quote, it says: Lord, I am willing to–
Receive what you give,
Lack what you withhold,
Relinquish what you take.
This quote reminds me of how Job responded after great loss. He said, “The Lord gave, and the Lord has taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord.”
You see the secret to contentment is TRUST. Do we trust Him or don’t we?
Under His Mercy,
Derek Dickinson, Minister
