God is much less interested in the circumstances that come our way, then our response to them. How am I responding? Is God's light shining for others to see when adversity strikes?
I have this ill conceived notion that because I had a really hard challenge in my past, I'm exempt from another of life's storms. It would be great to have a few years of smooth sailing to unruffle my wings and gain back perspective.
I will trust, that any plans God has for me are good. I wish I could say I'm doing this because it's right and worth my effort and not because it seems the easiest thing to do.
