Keeping My Faith

by GettingFreedom on October 30, 2009

I apologize for disappearing the last few days. It has been a tough week in our house. If you follow me on Twitter or are a fan on Facebook, you’ve seen some of my struggles.

First off, I cannot even begin to tell you how thankful I am for your prayers and your continued support during this time. I have felt every last one of them! It has been so comforting to me to know that you all care so much about me and our situation.

I consider myself to be a faithful, God fearing person. I’ve always prayed multiple times in a day, and I try to lead a life that is pleasing to my Creator. When everything happened this week, I was speechless and infuriated. I wanted to scream.

Instead, I prayed. Over and over.

The very situation that caused me to be very mad and incredibly hurt–just brought me peace and understanding. I was given guidance and the right words to help the situation–not harm it and make it an even bigger mess. In the middle of it all, I couldn’t believe it. A situation that could have easily created a huge mess, was going smoother than ever imagined.

As the days have went on, I found myself delving into The Word even more, and being on my knees in prayer far more than before. Every single scripture I came across pertained to my situation, some way, some how. My hurt was going away.

Turning the complete situation over to Christ has brought me peace. I know I cannot change it–but I know He can, and I know He will.

Keeping my faith in a time that I could have easily tossed it, is a Finer Thing indeed. We will be closer as a family, as a couple, as parents, and as believers.

The Enemy will not win–we will overcome and be stronger because of it!!
