Adaptation with Joy

Adaptation is the Art of Surrender - learning to go with the flow

It's like the explosion of a dandelion, with each seed finding the wind as its seat to the next place. We are often sent off by the best intentions of others, and some times leaving us wondering....

"Now where will this go?" 

We learn to experience JOY when knowing all winds are sent out by HIM, and will eventually bring us back to HIM. 

Jesus told Nicodemus "So is everyone having been born of the Spirit."  Men are often the catalysts of the winds that blow us about, but we must remember that it is our heavenly Father Who has given them breath to become those winds. 

All the storms we encounter contain His winds and His purposes are behind every blast, regardless of the direction it has come from.

The lightning and the thunder are His, however frightening they appear and the darkness of the storm is the place of His abode.

Psa 91:1,1 "He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust."

In His presence is FULLNESS of JOY. 

Whatever we are waiting for - peace of mind, contentment, grace, the inner awareness of simple abundance - it will surely come to us, but only when we are ready to receive it with an open and grateful heart.~Sarah Ban Breathnach

He who has faith has... an inward reservoir of courage, hope, confidence, calmness, and assuring trust that all will come out well - even though to the world it may appear to come out most badly.~B.S.Forbes

Faith is not simply a patience that passively suffers until the storm is past. Rather, it is a spirit that bears things - with resignations, yes, but above all, with blazing, serene hope.~Corazon Aquino
