As I was driving hither and yon this week, I heard the Lord say (in my heart), "Remember the last time you were really mad at Me for making you do something that you really did not want to do?

You obeyed me, but were very angry about it. This lesson (about adoption) has been the same---obedience, but resentment.

Aren't you very glad you obeyed me about the first thing?

Do you not believe that you would have missed a very great blessing, if you would have had done things your way, in your wisdom?

Is this, then, not the same? Can you not trust me to bless you again, even when you cannot see how it could happen?"

loooong silent pause

Then, repentence (which is defined as 'to turn').
