Trust Promises, Not Providences

Wise advice today from Jon Bloom at Desiring God.

And much needed for my little family. We're buffeted with our 2nd case of bronchitis this month and in need of prayers.

Just this morning, I told my 7 year old that our joy is not determined by whether our life is going as we'd like, but by how we respond to however our life is going.

Bloom ends his post with this quote from Puritan Thomas Wilcox:

Bless God for shaking off false foundations, for any way whereby He keeps the soul awakened and looking after Christ; better sickness and temptations, than security and superficiality.
