If God doesn't do it, it will be a disaster.

Me, tossing and turning in my bed this morning:

"Lord, why are you trusting me with this Retreat? I have spent the last three days eating constantly, from anxiety, I am not trustworthy!"

The Sweet Voice in my head: "Am I trustworthy?"

Me: Of course, Lord! You are completely trustworthy.

The Voice: "Then trust me."

I so much need to hear that! Its really so simple isn't it, and we (I) make it so complicated sometimes! Love, Jenny

AMEN!! I am so much looking forward to what God has in store...Your love for Him is so evident and pure, and your need to be all He wants you to be is so clear...God is blessed with a heart like that for Him, and I know that when we can get out there (retreat) and just really ask Him to take "ourselves" out of the teaching and let it be wholly Him, he will honor that. (I, of course will have to remember these words when our retreat comes up and I have to do a lot of the teaching...:-0)

Thank you guys. Your comments meant a lot to me this morning. Keep praying for us!

Yeah, I noticed you were doing the Esther study from your list of books you're reading. That idea about God using our crises to pick us up and turn us to a new direction really spoke to me, in the middle of my crises! :)

She talked about that in a couple of lessons. I think we are on the second to last. Is that where you guys are?

BTW, still I love your simple, sweet writing and your relationship with God! :) Jenny
