I have multiple blog entries in my head . . . but came across this in an e-devotional I subscribe to and thought it was apropos right about now:
I believe Joseph* had come to a place with God where he resigned himself to remain wherever God had chosen to keep him. He had become dead to his circumstances. It does not mean we can’t have a longing for better days, but there is a Godly contentment that allows us to remain in any condition with a peace that passes all understanding.
(*from the story in the Old Testament book of Genesis)
I’m not so ready to “resign myself” to remain where God has chosen to keep me . . . but I also don’t want to take a single step without knowing that it’s His will . . . so I will wait, and pray, and see where this all takes me.
