But He said unto me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness..." 2 Corinthians 12:9a

God is in Control

Do I really believe that? I have to remind myself of that here a lot lately. Brian and I are facing issues and decisions that are heavy on our heart right now. I am beginning to memorize the book of James with a few ladies from church. What a great time to memorize this book. Here is what I have memorized so far.
James, a servant of God, and of the Lord Jesus Christ. To the 12 tribes in the dispersion
Consider it pure joy my child when you encounter trials of various kinds. Knowing that the testing of your faith develops steadfastness, and let steadfastness have its full effect so that you can be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing. If any of you lacks wisdom, let him as God who gives generously to all without reproach and it will be given him.

I so need this right now. Even though I can't see it right now, God promises that He is working for good in this situation/s. He promises that He has His hand on my life. God knew my days before one of them came to be.

Now, if I can just live that out in my life....I'm trying!!
