Chasing Contentment

Friday, March 17

It's a beautiful spring day outside, and just as the sun feels warm on my face, my spirit feels lighter today. God does provide the lift I need exactly when I need it. I am so grateful.

I read Hannah's story - or the beginning of it - last night in 1 Samuel, and I am again reminded that God does answer prayers. I pray both for what I want and then that God's will be done, even if it contradicts the first part of my prayers. And I have been pleasantly surprised a number of times through this life.

Endlessly, I am grateful that God's will is so much better than mine and that He deems it appropriate to lavish His love upon us.
