Another day down. I tell ya, this has probably been the longest month I’ve ever had. Crafts, school, and working out have kept me fairly busy but there are still nights like tonight, when I can’t focus on school work and don’t have the patience for crafts, that make me miss Rod all the more. I wonder what he’s doing and if he’s okay and when he’ll contact me next. It’s a really helpless feeling being the one at home…a feeling, I must admit, that’s brand new to me. I started reading the new bible study, “God Strong.” It’s comforting reading through another woman’s experience and knowing mine is so similar. The greatest point she’s made so far is that when she had had enough of being strong and was too exhausted to put up the front anymore she realized that God’s strength is the only strength that would get her through her husband’s deployment. I’d never really thought to ask for God’s strength during this whole thing which makes me pretty sad.
Acts 8-15: Acts, so far, has given a detailed account of the disciples going out and ministering to non-believers and bringing people to Christ. It seems like they were coming left and right, aside from the occasional threat of stoning or imprisonment. It makes me wonder if we still had people on earth who could bring people back from the dead, heal by laying hands, expel demons, and speak in “tongues,” would the message of Jesus Christ be easier to accept for some atheists? Why do you think “spiritual gifts” don’t exist anymore, or do you?? Maybe the answer is further on in the text and I’ve yet to reach it…
I love you all and thanks for reading…M (175.0)
