Trust in Him…

Tears. I was brought to tears. An email from a dear friend did it…well maybe it was me who did it really.

This friend of mine has been struggling with something for quite a long time and just trusting God to get her through it. She thought she had a little more time to prepare, but the worst came much sooner than expected and she unexpectedly forced to deal with it last week.

Though she had to deal with severe pain, she never let her faith waiver. She thanked God for the situation because it made certain things possible that were not possible in the past. Had “the worst’ never happened she would have never known about the good.

I realize this is rather cryptic, but she’s a private person and I don’t want to share all details because of that.

What brought me to tears is the fact that she is such a strong woman in her faith and I…well I feel less strong. Let’s put it that way. But I don’t want it to be that way. I want to have the faith, the trust, in God that she does…Not that I don’t trust Him…I just don’t trust Him enough. At least that’s how I feel.

Do I truly trust Him with all aspects of my life? No. I lean on my own understandings and my own strength far too often. That’s what needs to change. The email I received may be a start. The example she sets is wonderful.

There is a song by Stacie Orrico and the lyrics say, “Don’t look at me if you’re looking for perfection. Don’t look at me I will only let you down. I’ll do my best to point you in the right direction. But don’t look at me. Look at Him.

My friend is doing a wonderful job in pointing not only myself, but many others, to Him. And to her I say a big “Thank you!” I love you for it.

Writers block…

Filed under: What Not — kim @ 10:26 pm

I haven’t written in a while… Well, that’s not entirely true. I have actually started 4 other blogs only to get stuck and save them as drafts…never finished.

Sometimes I wonder if I just ramble too much…as the title of my blog suggests. Sometimes I want to have a nice neat blog that focuses on one topic all the time. Then I think, “no, there are many topics that run through my mind. How could I limit my writing to one boring old topic?”

Tonight I ran into a blog that I used to read frequently. It’s called Carolina on my Mind. “Caro,” who is the author of the blog is from North Carolina. She loves all sports there and is especially fond of a former American Idol contestant who is also a native North Carolinian…Clay Aiken.

Her blog is a nice one…lots of graphics…and lots of articles on various topics that she loves. I can do that! Well, in a way I guess I am doing that. I just want to make my blog more interesting…more appealing to the eye. After all, I’m really no stranger to the world of blogs, message boards, html…etc. It’s fun to play with. It’s just a little time consuming.

So, my goal is to get the drafts that I have saved up finished and posted. It’ll be a few weeks worth of work, but that’s alright. I enjoy it!

Time for some brainstorming 🙂
