Finding Your Way in Faith

I really wasn’t sure I could do it.  I knew I had to.  We had commited to a path and we needed the money I was now making.  But, every day I wondered how much longer it would be before I would loose it and quit.  It took everything in me to keep my resolve.  I knew I had to work at least 5-6 years and so I kept getting up.  Because I really didn’t know what else to do.

Each morning after I got up I spent a few minutes with the Lord.  I prayed, I shared my fears, my doubts, my disagreements, my exhaustion.  And each morning I was strengthened for the task He had given me.  Each morning I was renewed.  It wasn’t perfect, it didn’t change the fact that I was working, that my family was struggling, that I really wanted to run away.  Until one day I began to relax, to trust, to see the blessings instead of just the problems.

This is the place to come for a weekly devotion.  A word of encouragement.  A prayer.  A place to be reminded that through this transition you are not alone.

And a place for prayer.  Many people prayed for me as I went back to work and know that you are being prayed for too.  This is the place to leave a prayer request in the comments if you feel comfortable or you can always send an email.  I would love to pray specificly for you.

“I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength.” Phil 4:13
