New Strength

Hey!  I'm back.  I've had a relaxing blogging break and I want thank you for all your kind comments, concern, and prayers.  Your love and kindness overwhelm me.  I am happy to know that there are so many good people out there that care.  Thank you!  I wish I could reach out through my computer and give each of you a hug!  You are amazing.

Today I want to write about something I don't write about very often on this blog.  I'm going to share something spiritual, something deeply personal.

I've suffered a lot of physical pain in my life.  Most of the time I have had faith enough to get through the hardest times, but once in a while I start to lose hope.  I start to wonder if my Father in Heaven really cares and how He can let me suffer so much.  I want to give up because it is just too much.  The last time I wrote, I was having such a moment.  But I can tell you, no matter how hard your trials may be,  the Lord always provides a way for you to make it through.  It may not be easy, but He loves you and will help you.

While my life has not been completely pain free this past week, I have found new strength that I didn't know I had.  I have learned to rely more upon my Savior, Jesus Christ, and I know I can make it through whatever trials I have to face with His help.

This video I'm sharing is something that I know was meant for me.  I cried so hard the first time I watched it because the message applies to me so personally and I know that it is true.  I cried because it was evidence to me of God's love for me.  He sent me exactly what I needed when I needed it.

So, if you are struggling with any trial in your life, please watch this.  It has helped me to take courage to keep moving forward with faith and made it possible for me to push through more pain that I thought I could.  I hope I can always remember what is taught here, that 
"acting on even a twig of faith allows God to grow it".
