praising HIM, not pleasing me

Loved this quote from Janie B. Cheaney. . . (from World Mag, of course) . . .

This is my Father's world. The weather, my health, and all earthly circumstances are arranged to praise Him rather than please me. But to throw myself in His everlasting arms and willingly (if not always cheerfully) give myself to whatever He does, is the ultimate pleasure. . . . In the end there is only one way to play this game, and that is with abandon.
Easier said than done, but it's how I want to live.

What circumstances do you find yourself in today that are arranged "to praise Him rather than please me?"

Is it happening?

Are you playing this game "with abandon" and ruthless trust?
