Keepin' On Keepin' On

These last few weeks have been strange to say the least! I didn't feel like I had much to say here, until last night.

We started a new series at Church called Life. Money. Hope. I admit that at first I was thinking "oh boy...another 'money' talk"...not that our church is like that...its just where my heart was last night!!! God promptly V8 slapped me in the head and yet again showed patience AND mercy on this fool he calls his child!

Life.Money.Hope: its all about finding hope in the midst of hardship...for most right now this economy is hitting them pretty hard. In that aspect I feel like we're a couple of pages ahead...been there done that over the last few years!! The thing that got me was we have hardships of all kinds,

Lately I've been feeling like I'm barely hanging know the picture: some poor lady caught in a flash flood, hanging on God knows how to a twig of a tree, getting whipped around in the torrent! Yep, that's me!

But in the midst of this flash flood of trouble, I have to rely on hope. Hope in the fact that this is only a season, hope that no matter how crazy the boys seem now...they are good kids, hope in the fact that I can over come, hope in a future that God has promised!!!

Kieth had said a ton of things last night that hit home, but the biggest was this:

Don't forget in the dark what God has promised in the light!

Its so easy to be all Pollyanna when things are going good! But when the storm hits, we have to find that twig of hope to hang on to!!! (Which might feel like a twig, but its connected to a big huge God whose got it all under control!!!)

So, if you're out there, feeling swept away by life...hold tight to the God whose faithful in the light and right there for you to hold onto in the dark!
