I happened to be flicking through 1 Peter tonight and was struck by this amazing verse –
So then, those who suffer according to God’s will should commit themselves to their faithful Creator and continue to do good.
In my experience committing myself to my faithful creator becomes harder and harder as life becomes harder and harder, and I want more and more control. Until I realise I can’t control anything and have no option but to commit myself to God.
Until them continuing to do good is impossible.
