Learning to trust
Thank you for not minding my re-post on Sunday of one of my former "Tea Posts". It was written two (or was it three?) years ago on a Valentine's Day. :)
I do have so many things to write about but at the moment I find it hard to ponder. My heart is heavy as I have watched the news footage from Southern Indiana. My father was from there and my eldest brother lived in Salem for many years. It was in that area that the mother, father, and two children were all killed and then their little toddler who was found alive just passed away.
If you have never been there, it is some gorgeous country.
Being afraid of tornadoes and even Tornado Watches (let's not even talk about Warnings) has been an issue between God and me since childhood. We have lived through many near misses and I helped clean up a friend's house after the big Tornado outbreak of 1974. Most of the time I'm able to stay calm and just pray a lot.
I truly believe we all have areas where we have to lean on God for His strength to infuse our own in an "I believe, help my unbelief" kinda' way.
If anyone were to accuse me of using God as a crutch, I must admit I would look at the person in utter amazement and ask them, "Of course, don't you?!!!". :)
