Trust

Trust.

This past Sunday at church, before the service began, a couple was asked to speak to us.  And they explained how God has changed their lives. Because they trusted Him.  They trusted him with their finances, and he answered.  They began to volunteer, and their lives felt more fulfilled.  All of this because they trusted Him.

Here is a little background on me.  I moved to Norfolk on March 1, 2011 for a job and to be with my fiance.  On March 11, for me, everything changed.  My sister was lost after the Tohuku area of Japan was hit by an earthquake and then tsunami. She was missing for 10 days before they found her body.

So needless to say, I go through some good days and bad days.  Even before Sunday I have been wondering.  Am I trusting God like I should?  I want to and I have the desire, but every time I am about to reach out and give Him my burdens, I recoil.  All I keep thinking about is if one thing I thought I could never lose, is gone, then what’s next?

So I continue to try and let my faith carry me through for “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope: (Romans 15:13).  Because today I may not see the purpose, but tomorrow I hope i do.

Love
This picture is from a sunrise in my backyard.  My fiance had just spent the night taking care of me when I was sick and he was still awake when the sun started to rise.   I don't know why this image has been stuck in my head for this past week.  Just something about it is so hopeful that I clin

I'll Pray for You
This week in one of my classes we were talking about why we punish criminals. As a class we came up with a list of reasons that are often cited for the various punishments criminals are sentenced to. Part of the class reading for that week was four articles written by four Christian men on Retributi

Jesus as My Boyfriend
So, I think I should start with a disclaimer that I'm a Chemistry teacher - so English, not really my thing, and please excuse the many typos/grammar mistakes I am sure to make throughout this journey. Alrighty, recently my quiet times have been completely overwhelmed with how much I desire a bo
