9/18/07
Life has been crazy for us lately. There have been all sorts of changes for everyone. We are dealing with some very difficult things right now. Maybe someday I’ll be able to share the details with everyone.

The up side to our current difficulties is that we have been surrounded by friends and family that love us, care about use, and support us. Even more importantly, we have been able to run to God with our problems. We depend on our faith and God’s promises of protection to get us through things. That’s worth more than anything. Our whole purpose while we are on this earth is to get our focus on God, and to help others do the same.

So in a way, these difficult times are also a blessing. They get us where we are supposed to be in terms of our walk with God. When things are bad, it is easy to turn to God for help.

I hope we will succeed in keeping that same focus on Him even when things are good, instead of drifting back into our own world as if we only need God when things are bad.

I want to thank God for the peace I am able to feel by putting my trust in Him. I want to thank Him for all loved ones that support us and make themselves available to us when we need them. I want to thank him in advance for the miracle he is going to provide to us.

I want to pray for the miracle we need, for continued peace and comfort in Him, and His will to be done in His perfect time. I pray for the person who has been waiting for years for prayers to be answered. I pray for the person who is struggling to adjust and feeling judged during a divorce. I pray for the person who is homeless, jobless, and in drug rehab. I pray for the children who are living in a home lacking spiritual and moral values. I just pray…
