I wish I could give each of you a copy!

The timing of your devotion could not be more perfect. I struggle with control issues and anxiety when I am faced wit the unknown. Sometimes my faith is so strong and at other times, so weak. I am learning, slowly and because of my own stubborn self, that God does not work in fear. He comes in Peace because He is peace. I am learning to rely more on Him and less on myself. I have spent too many years paralyzed by anxiety and fear and I want to learn to live this life, the good and bad, with hope and faith that he will see me through. I want my daughter to see this faith and hope I, along with God, can plant strong seeds of faith in her. Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us. It is comforting to know we do not take this journey alone.

I wish I had a copy for each of you that entered to win. You have touched my heart deeply with your stories and your longing for more faith. Tracy, you are the recipient of Wendy Blight’s book from my give-away last week. We’ve got your email so we’ll be in touch this week to get your mailing address.

    Congratulations Tracy 🙂

  2. I needed this today-I'm going thru a deep valley where I'm not getting guidance from God yet,my Christian friends are telling me I need to make decisions about my life and that I ask too many people for advice.I'm alone in San Antonio,having been divorced by my ex-husband(who's gay).He finished college and began a career in teaching while I raised our kids.Now he has them bcause he has a good salary and our home,I work nights ata residential care facility and live in a smll apartment,and get my girls on weekends and in 2 weeks.I feel so alone, my van barely works.I don't want to go on, I am so embarrassed for my daughters to have to live with me in this dump and ride in my broken van.I just don't want to go on anymore,I'm barely holding on.
