"Once our eyes are opened, we cannot pretend we don't know what to do. God, who weighs our hearts and keeps our souls, knows that we know, and holds us responsible to act." Proverbs 24:12



“There are no strangers here; Only friends you haven’t yet met.”- William Butler Yeats

"The Ordeal"


"Trust in the Lord with ALL your heart and lean not on your own understanding; In ALL your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your path straight." - Proverbs 3:5-6



I'm wondering why is it that when you ask God to push you to the limit, it always ends up being over the cliff and leaving you to have to trust fully in Him?

So, is that verse like this: "...and He will make you're path STRAIGHTTTTTTTTTT"?.

:ahem:

I know what ya mean. Sometimes, I am scared to ask Him to use me, stretch me, grow me, cuz I know He will. (only half-kidding).

If there is such a thing as having your own "signature scripture", this is it for me! It is what I truly try to live by.

Hey - like I said - all He's after is your complete trust - but that's nothing you don't already know! Prayers for whatever is in the background - call if you need anything (even if it's just and ear!)!

hugs - aus and co.

Worried about you, O. Please call for anything...you've got my number. In the meantime, I'm thinking of you and yours and praying, sending you love and hugs and reminding you that there is nothing...NOT. ONE. THING. that He can't carry you through.

I love you...
Ame
