to receive God's will
“You are never to complain of your birth,
your training, your employments, your hardships;
never to fancy that you could be something
if only you had a different lot
and sphere assigned you.
God understands His own plan,
and He knows what you want
a great deal better than you do.
The very things that you most deprecate,
as fatal limitations or obstructions,
are probably what you most want.
What you call hindrances, obstacles, discouragements,
are probably God's opportunities.
Bring down your soul, or rather,
bring it up to receive God's will and do His work,
in your lot, in your sphere,
under your cloud of obscurity,
against your temptations,
and then you shall find that your condition
is never opposed to your good,
but really consistent with it.”
- Horace Bushnell
“Some people would grumble
at the accommodations in Heaven
if they ever got there.”
