Grief and Trusting God

Part two of Grief series Last time I talked about the promises of God and that that is where I find my strength and hope.   This is about trusting God.   His promises are sure but if you do not trust,  knowing them won't make a difference,   It won't give you the hope and strength that you may need.   I realize that had this loss come during my non-spiritual sabbatical I would have lost my way.  I would have probably had doubts as to why Lord?  I may have gone down a very dark hole.   So even in the midst of this season of loss I am given proof of trusting God's timing and His way.       “For my thoughts...

Tuesday Tunes Lead me by Janice Gaines

  Bringing this back especially since I found Spotify.    I should say that I have been aware of Spotify as it shows up as a bill but did not realize all that I was missing.   I wanted more variety in my music this definitely supplies it.  I believe music can do wonders for us.  Don't get me wrong nothing replaces the word of God.
