Silence

Tossing and turning. Eyes open then closed. Noises that are distracting. No voices or visions. Just darkness.

Something doesn’t feel right. Something is trying to get attention. Uneasiness is all around.

What do you do in those moments when you are restless, and maybe even weary? You feel like you’ve done all the praying you can do. You’ve written on every page in your journal. You’ve burned the rubber off the bottom of your running shoes.  You’ve eaten all the candy, sweets, and other snacks found in the kitchen. You’ve watched all the mindless tv that you could handle.
You’re waiting to make your next move. Yet, you’re not quite sure what that move should be. Just continue to be still. Know that God is in complete and total control. In Horizontal Jesus, Tony Evans’ reminds us that “even when God is silent, He is not still.”
Although there may not be any answers at the present moment. Trust God and know that He is still God. Accordingly, He is still moving in your life, on your behalf, and through the situation. Take comfort in knowing that God has not left you. You will soon see how God remained your light in the darkness.

I needed to find a daycare, drive by schools, and establish residency. All of this was to be done with three kids in toe, all under the age of five.

I was up to the challenge. One afternoon in August, we were headed out for errands. Once I got to the car, I realized that I didn't have any water. I ran back upstairs to our apartment. When I opened the freezer to reach for a bottle of ice cold water, I was stopped in my tracks by a ring box and a note.

Yes! This man left his family behind for me.
Yes! This man spent 6 weeks alone in Tallahassee to set a foundati…
