{Truly Blessed}

It's been one of those weeks ... 
It's been crazy.
and scary.
{and unbelievably emotional}
We've doubted everything.
and discovered strength we didn't know we had.
It's been full of family togetherness and
it's been wonderful in a very strange way.

{We had our world rocked}
and then rocked back the other way.

But it really made us lean on God.
to trust in Him.
no matter what.
It made us realize how truly blessed we really are!

One night while reading my Bible,
I stumbled upon the book of Job.

Oh what a man Job was!
He was CONSTANTLY being tested ...
He lost everything.
(including his entire family!)
but yet he still COMPLETELY trusted God.
He never loses his Faith, 
or blames God...

How wonderful is that?
If only I could be more like Job.

But that is my prayer --
I strive daily to be more like Job...
to remember that God wouldn't give us anything we can't handle.

He knows us, better than we know ourselves.
we just have to TRUST Him.
 to have Faith.
 
"Shall we accept good from God, and not trouble?"
- Job 2:10
