I have heard from people who have read my post. They ask me how it is possible to be optomistic when obviously things are not going well for our world. I have to agree....things are not all that rosy.
I am willing to admit I am worried, but I find peace in knowing that my life is not in my hands, but in my Father's. Ok, this is not easy to comprehend, and believe me my faith is something I struggle with on a daily basis. It is not so easy for me to grasp this concept and let go of the worry.
But then I look at the picture of Meghan and Jim that is probably one of my favorites. We have the photo in our family room and I look at it often. I see a photo of a young woman taking a HUGE step of faith, and yet clinging to her father for strength and a longing to know that even though she is moving on to the next phase of her life, that her father will still be there for her. And that it how I view my life. I know that He is there for me and so when life becomes full of burden that I can not carry alone, I put my trust in Him. Yes, I cannot see Him, but I look at the picture of Meghan and Jim and I know that is how I am with the Father. I cling to Him and hope for a future that will be brighter.
