Give us this day

Upon meditating about the Lord's Prayer, God gave me a new understanding for the line:
Give us this day our daily bread
He asks: are you willing to receive everything I have for you today?
I used to think it just meant 'bread' or food or even the Holy Eucharist on a daily basis. But now I come to see this verse in a deeper way. Jesus asks if we can receive anything and everything from His hand, it all being for the benefit of our souls. Can I, will I receive the joy and the sorrow, that comes from Him?
I want to give him my fiat, my yes. I want to say, 'be it done unto me, according to your will.' I need to say it many times a day.
