A look back

This past year has flown by, there have been struggles and difficulties a long the way, but the Lord has been faithful to us through it all.  We as a family as learned so much.  A year ago at this time we were looked at what I considered a fearful storm, it looked very ominous in my mind and I was very afraid.  I knew in my head that the Lord would take care us, but I couldn't see how.  As I consider the events of this past year, I must say it has been a great year.  We saw the Lord provide for us abundantly.  Every need that we had was supplied, not just that, but the wants that we had were supplied.  We serve a great God!

I have learned so much about the Lord that we serve this year.  I have learned of his faithfulness and goodness. I have been amazed by his mercy and his justice.  I have sat in awe of his amazing love for us.  I have contemplated verse like: Rom 8:32  He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?
How small is our faith.  We have a Heavenly Father who gave his only begotten, beloved Son so that we could have eternal life.  He gave us something most amazing, but He is not done yet.  He will freely give us all that we need. In response we fret and worry about things that we need, when we have a Heavenly Father who gives to us freely!
