Our relationship with Christ is ever-evolving. Ever deepening.
That is, if we allow it.
Every time I think I have trusted God enough for a season, He challenges me to trust Him more. It’s never comfortable, and sometimes I find myself frustrated and angry with Him rather than appreciative.
But I am slowly learning to be grateful for these challenges the Lord allows. They show me he wants to go deeper with me. This is an incredible gift. Jesus trusts me to go deeper with him. He loves me so much that he takes me deeper than I ever wanted to go with him. How incredible!
This past year our family struggled financially. Because of this, in many ways, it was the worst year of our lives.
We met great adversity at every turn. We lost our health. We lost our home. We lost some friends. We lost our income for these past eight months.
Despair threatened to overtake us. We felt like we were drowning.
But Jesus showed up.
