Do you remember when I told you that our Pastor asked our family to tell our story? Well, I did tell you that. And, we did tell our story. Scott, Eddie and I met with our Pastor in our living room in late summer. He asked us about our struggles. Our Pastor wants to know what happens when faith meets hardship.
When Pastor Bryan first asked us to do this thing, we were scared. Being on camera is uncomfortable. But, we didn’t hesitate. We said yes right away.
A long time ago, Scott and I told God that He could use our lives as He sees fit. We said, “God, if we have to endure this thing we don’t want to endure, could you please help us see the point?”
We’ve told God many times that we would be very grateful to have Eddie be healed. We’ve also promised God that we would be willing participants in whatever He means for us to do, regardless of the outcome.
The thing about making promises to God is that He remembers. You don’t want to back out on stuff like that. I’m averse to hanging out in the belly of a whales, and stuff like that. I would just as soon do as I’m told. I seriously doubt whales have wi-fi, and I just don’t even want to think about how bad that would be.
Others folks in our church will be asked to do this man-on-the-street type interview. I love it. Because, guess what? God is relevant. He isn’t an icon, or out of touch. He’s real, and He’s in every day.
I’m excited to hear other people’s stories. Here is ours:
