My “get ready for school” book is Homeschooling for Eternity by Skeet Savage. This paragraph really touched me and so I figured others might need to hear it too.
“If each day you are asking Him [God] to order your steps, then anything that comes your way that day will be viewed not as an interruption to your plans but as God’s divine purpose and plan for your life. Some of what comes your way has been allowed there so that you can take dominion over it while some things that you will face must be accepted as that which cannot be changed. If you have surrendered your life completely to His will, then nothing can unsettle you from the quiet confidence that is your inheritance as you walk each day resting in His peace.”
