rest in His goodness

The rain has stopped, 
and the sun showed its face today, drying my backed-up laundry, 
and the muddy homes of thousands whose houses flooded this weekend.  

This quote from Joni Eareckson Tada put things in perspective for me today:

“I’m grateful that He only allows to slip through His sovereign fingers 
that which He’s convinced will help our souls and fit us better for eternity.”

What comfort, to rest in His goodness...

What a wonderful quote, It encourages me today! (On day 6 of recovering from a bad flu, so this is great to hear.)
