Trusting

The end of this month marks our 1 year anniversary of living in South Carolina. I can't believe we've worked with a congregation full time for a year. I think it has been a great year for us and I hope the congregation thinks so, too. One thing I am most thankful for is the spiritual growth I have personally experienced through this year. A lot of things have happened, good and bad, and through it all I have kept the faith. That doesn't mean that I didn't want to question God and what was going on (especially during our 3 weeks of homelessness), but every time my brain went there, I drove Satan out and made myself trust Him and His plan and His purpose. He is teaching me lessons through every day and every situation and I am striving to learn them. I am trusting that God knows what is best for my life and for our family. I'm learning to be satisfied that we have our family, our health, a home and a car. I thank Him every day for all of our blessings.

"Whatever my lot,
Thou hast taught me to say,
It is well, it is well
With my soul."

I am happy to hear that. I need to try harder on this one.
