I wish I could send a book to each one of you.
I really do.
Last night I spent the evening reading through all of your comments while I was waiting for my hubby to get home from work. I was honestly overwhelmed. Wow. I wanted to write to each of you individually. I wanted to be able to give each one of you a hug. I wanted to do something to help. Obviously, none of that is possible, so instead I just prayed as I read through your struggles. I prayed that God’s truth would penetrate your heart and mine as we learn to trust Him. I prayed that you would experience the Lord’s indescribable love and comfort as you cling to Him.
Some of you are facing the day-to-day struggles of trusting God with the little things (which don’t always seem so little, do they?). Some of you are trusting God with some really tough circumstances. I read about how you are trusting God with kids, starting a family, marriages, finances, pregnancies, cancer, safety, broken hearts, betrayal, adoption, death, control, broken friendships, jobs, moving, infertility, and so much more.
When I read through that list and think about getting through those things in my own strength, my heart feels heavy. But isn’t it incredible that we don’t have to face any of that alone? The Lord knows each one of our hearts. And he knows every detail of whatever circumstance you are struggling to trust Him with. So, while I know there is nothing I can do to walk through these hard things with you, I know Someone who can. Keep clinging to the Lord and His Truth as we learn to trust Him more each day.
Okay, do you want to know who won?
Please e-mail me your mailing address (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I will get your book in the mail this week.
I hope you all had a good weekend.
My little guy turned nine months on Saturday…crazy! I’ll tell you more about what he has been up to tomorrow.
