Morning Coffee - Leave the Choice with Him

God always gives His best to those who leave the choice with Him.      ~ Jim Elliot
One of my favorite old television shows, Father Knows Best, had it exactly right.  Our Father does know best.  Despite all of my attempts to take control of most every situation I face, ultimately I learn that He knows what he is doing – and I don’t!   Not only has His way has always been the best, but most times, it has been so much better than I could have ever imagined!

Time to refill my cup and then hand over today's choices to Him, who knows best.



  1. Funny you should mention the father on Father Knows Best, Sandy. I was thinking about peaceful people today, and I thought of him. Learning that He is in control of your life and accepting it is the biggest act of faith a person can do.

  2. I love the old shows mostly because they focus on a more God centered home. While it isn't in your face, the idea is there under the surface and demonstrated by the quiet way in which the family lives.

  3. Father Knows Best and The Andy Griffith Show were my all time favorites. I think I know every Andy Giffith episode by heart. (Wish there were reruns of Father Knows Best.)

    A lot can be learned from those quiet, peaceful God centered homes and families.

  4. Those were wonderful shows!! Presently I'm enjoying reruns of Little House, which our kids always loved. I LOVE that Elliot quote - but our kids are having a hard time with it. They've been waiting on the Lord for jobs for 4 months now - having just moved back to Canada! It's hard!
