Many years ago—it must have been a thousand—I was in a precarious situation, and instead of accepting it as the will of God, I reacted with panic and unreason. I only realize now I should have gone with what was ostensibly the flow of Him for whose sake I had done it, and ridden it out. When we’re young we know so little.
This wise appraisal of the situation only came to me one morning of my retirement, and there was little I could do about it now. What’s done is done. Had I only been as assiduous about prayer.
I don’t say I’d handle it better now, but at least I learned a lesson. Onward, I say onward!
