Sometimes I feel like I fight the hands that are holding me. I try to find my own way. I struggle to give my problems and worries to Him and know that everything will work out. Often I don't make time to listen to what He wants.
I need to know that I can just stop and rest because He is holding me. I need to have trust and not turn away when fear or uncertainty creeps in. He is always by my side no matter what. Why is that so hard to understand at times?

"Cursed is the man who trusts in man
and makes flesh his strength,
whose heart turns away from the Lord.
He is like a shrub in the desert,
and shall not see any good come.
He shall dwell in the parched places of the wilderness,
in an uninhabited salt land.
"Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord,
whose trust is the Lord.
He is like a tree planted by water,
that sends out its roots by the stream,
and does not fear when heat comes,
for its leaves remains green,
and is not anxious in the year of drought,
for it does not cease to bear fruit."
-Jeremiah 17: 5-8

The school called Stacey and let him know that Makenna was in pain. He called me at work for advice on what to do for her. I wanted to run to her at that moment! I wanted to be there to hug her and help her pain any way I could.
I was at work and just had a good start on a long 12 hour shift. I knew Stacey was taking her medicine and she would be able to get some relief. I did the only thing I could do for Makenna at that moment... I prayed for her and asked God to take some of her pain away. She was still on my mind all day but I had some peace trusting that God would help her through the day.
I learned just how big my faith is. I was able to put one of the most important people in my life in His hands to help and protect. Sometimes my faith doesn't seem big enough or I start to doubt things. I guess when it really counts I do have enough faith to see me through.
He replied, "Because you have so little faith. I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you." Matthew 17:20

Today is my mom's birthday. Today is also my birthday. Today was supposed to be Keaton's birthday but he decided he wanted to come two weeks early. :)
This is the sign that sits on State Road 32 in front of Monroe Central. I was very shocked to read this yesterday on my way home from work.
We had a good day today. We met up with mom and dad tonight and ate dinner at Damon's.
Happy Birthday Nana! We love you!!
