Yes, I can thank Him in the middle of the worst of it.
I don't have to feel relief from the situation. It is about agreeing with Him no matter what. I can go to Him and thank Him because I trust Him and know He would not allow anything other than preparation for heaven.
I will stand before Him and agree with Him that this world is not my home.
I will agree that these people are His and not mine.
I will agree that He makes jewels out of ashes.
I will agree that He has never made a mistake.
I will agree that He may always do anything He wills with my life.
Yes, I will submit to the surgical knife of the Lover of My Soul.
