I realized that the deepest spiritual lessons are not learned by His letting us have our way in the end, but by His making us wait, bearing with us in love and patience until we are able to honestly to pray what He taught His disciples to pray: Thy will be done. -Elisabeth Elliot, Passion and Purity

I so often want to glimpse the end of my life’s story; to know how everything is going to turn out. But that is not how the Lord desires to sanctify us. Because in the unknown and frightening, faith grows. Because if we knew the end of the day, we might not get out of bed in the morning. Because His glory always equals our good. As you learn to truly pray as Christ did, “Thy will be done,” may you be comforted that we do know the ultimate end of The Story: King Jesus coming to ransom His captive people, to make all things right, and to command our praise and worship forever. Praise God for lovingly leading us to the end.
