Accept--Give--Bless

The advice given in a certain book is to accept what happens, give it to God, and bless Him for it. No ifs, ands, or buts. No evaluating whether what has happened is good or ill. God has either caused it or permitted it so He must know it is for our good because God cannot act to bring us to eternal ill. As we move along the path of conversion, we will face sufferings and trials. Accept them, give them to God, and bless Him for them because God is using those to conform you to the image of Christ.
