We do not have to do it alone
Lately I have been beginning to feel really beat down. It seemed that if something could go wrong then it did and I was beginning to get really discouraged. Along with a couple other things we were down to 1 vehicle for 3 of us to use. 2 of us needed to get to work (I thankfully was not one of them) and I was beginning to feel very discouraged and trying to figure out what to do. God decided to speak to me through some really great people about getting through the storms of life. I am a member of an awesome Trinity Choir family. It is an amazing group of singers that perform an Easter cantata at different churches for about a month up until Easter. The group has become very special to me and I feel like they are family. A gentleman gave an awesome devotion about lifting your problems up to God and allowing him to handle them and the next week a lady gave a devotion about trusting God to handle the situations that come up in life. To have a peace knowing that God is in control and he has "got this". We need to be able to "sleep in the boat" during the storms of life because we know that God is taking care of us. Isn't it amazing the way that God speaks to us? I believe that one of the things that happened with the truck was God protecting us. The truck began overheating so Doug had to fix it and while he was fixing it he found another problem with some kind of spring that was making it dangerous to drive. If he had not been fixing the coolant leak then he may not have found the other problem until something bad happened. The Lord works in such amazing ways!
