    Faith, Trust and family help me with LOVE.

      It is interesting to me that you mention your family and love. I agree that in the start times it is those who are near us that make the difference. And love is a light. Thanks, Thomas!

    Very non-pious, but I think about the 1997 movie “The Apostle” with Robert Duvall where he is angry with God and yelling at God that He doesn’t exist. Then he asks God what he should do. Ah-ha! It’s okay for me to be angry with God as long as I am still seeking truth and communicating with Him. We shouldn’t be immature tantrum-throwers, but He still loves us just like we loved our kids when they threw a tantrum.

      This is an excellent point. And it makes me want to watch that movie. Kind of crazy, but I have never seen it. It’s going to the top of the list. Thanks, Denise!

    I have nothing to hold onto. I’m not holding on. I just keep putting one foot in front of the other. I don’t have friends who encourage me. My family, while they support me in tangible ways are not supportive emotionally or spiritually. While there are promises in the Bible, I guess those promises for peace, hope and love are not meant for me, or will happen another day, maybe at the end of my life. Same with healing. So I don’t hold on to promises or anything else. I just keep going, existing, doing life, but not living.

      A friend shared something with me about today’s post that might be useful. It sounds sort of like what you’re saying. Here it is: “I find myself in the waiting for God place often. Most of the time I just do the next thing…make the meal, do the laundry, plan the lesson, feed the cat, etc…it is not profound or glamorous…but it is comforting in a small way while waiting for God to appear.”

    Lately, I’ve been holding on to my husbands faith. He trust God so much, he is so strong in his faith that I have found myself just believing because he does so strongly. Though two rounds of cancer, seizures, coma, and recent neurosurgery,he just trust God will bring him through, and he has come through even stronger in his belief that God is with him. Some days I just think how can one believe so strongly.

      Wow, Sheron. How amazing that your husband has such deep trust in God!
