1 Samuel 25.29
There's far more to this life than trusting in Christ. There's also suffering for him. And the suffering is as much a gift as the trusting.
wow, lord, thank you that when we put you first we are both trusting in you and saying no to what our self says that runs counter you. thank you for the grace to handle saying no to what we would naturally choose apart from you. thank you that we are living in this freedom to do as you please, for provision to do exactly this, and for having a life that speaks volumes to others around us when it comes to following you and obeying you. praise you, God, for all you do, all you are.
