Lessons from life

I am really struggling to be more regular in my blogging. Thank you for your patience with me.

God is teaching Becca and I a lot right now. God is continuing to teach us about patience and relying on Him and not ourselves. Each day I am reminded that I can do nothing on my own. I must trust God for each moment.

I finished Wisdom Hunter on Tuesday night (click the link on the left side of my blog for more information on the book). This is an amazing book. It is the story of Pastor Jason Fairchild's life as he deals with the death of his wife and grand-daughter (who he never met) and his spiritual journey resulting from their deaths. This book is based on a true story and it is amazing for me to see how God can take what humanly looks like a tragedy and use it for His glory. I would never have imagined this story ending the way it did.

This book also talks about legalism in the church. Pastor Fairchild learned a lot of his beliefs originally by being brainwashed. As a result of tragic events in his life, He relearned a lot about God. I have friends who are on similar journeys right now as they find out for themselves who God is. I think these times, though difficult, can be very rewarding. I think God can draw us closer to Himself as we learn about Him and this makes the pain worthwhile.
