That'll do pig, that'll do (ending to Babe)

We destroy our own happiness when we are too choosy - when we insist on God providing us the perfect conditions for growth from our own perspective. We grow in maturity and faith when we approach our current situation with the attitude that God has a purpose and plan even though they are not completely clear to us in full array. We are enriched tremendously by accepting ownership of the situation in which God has planted us and accepting responsibility to seek and to do God's will in that situation. We're told to “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight” (Proverbs 3:5-6 NIV). What may appear an unpromising situation from our point of view (just another detour) can be ideal from God's. If in a given situation we faithfully say with acceptance “That'll do God, that'll do,” this can lead to God lovingly saying the same to us – or perhaps that's something he said at the outset when initially taking our measure.
