God, I desperately want to let go of my fears and concern over those I love. I often find myself afraid for their health or their future, so much so that sometimes it consumes my thoughts. God, you know my heart, and that I don’t want to see those that I love hurt or suffer. Yet I know that you didn’t call me to protect those I love through fear, but by faith and prayer. So please, God, help me remember that as much as my heart overflows with love for my family and friends, that you love them far more than I do. Help me to rest in the fact that they belong to You and You alone. When difficult things happen to those I love, help me trust Your promise to work all things together for good for those who are Yours. I choose right now to trade my fear for faith in Your love and protection over their lives.

She's alive!

Wow. It has been a ridiculous amount of time since my last post. Apparently I have at least five readers, because I have gotten five messages this week alone asking, "When are you going to blog again?" and "Are you alive?"

My move to Braselton went well and although I am still unpacking the last few boxes, I am essentially settled into my new home. Pictures are hung, furniture is in place, and the closets are organized...well, sort of. I love, love, love living up here, and it truly feels like home. It's been quite a whirlwind with completing schoolwork (2 theses this semester, ugh), packing and then unpacking, and unfortunately I've also been hit with some nasty health issues. Those, my friends, are the reasons that you have not heard from me in a while. It has been quite a ride.

So, let's just call this a fresh new blogging start. =) I hereby renew my vow to blog.

This is all I have for you five readers tonight, as I am exhausted. More tomorrow, I promise.

Good night, and may you feel God's arms wrapped tightly around you as you rest in His unyielding faithfulness.
