How did we get here?
Damaged and incomplete

What did I say?
What did I do?

What didn't I say?
What didn't I do?

I'm searching
Trying to figure this all out

Is it because I won't listen?
Or because you won't listen?

Is it because I won't share?
Or because you won't share?

We act out how we feel
Refusing to say how we feel

Or when we say how we feel
It's comes out all wrong

For those feelings have been
bottled up inside for way too long

When did we become broken?
Was it the day our lives changed forever?

Truth be told I really don't know
So much time has passed

So much pain and hurt
Too stubborn to deal with our broken pieces
So we remain broken.....

There are many things that can cause a relationship to become broken, but there are also many ways to restore a relationship. The choice is up to you. I'm praying for all the broken relationships in my life and in the lives of my readers. If we do our part, God can do the rest.

Everything Will Work Itself Out

Last night in bible study I was asked this question, "How do you know that you have faith?" Anyone that knows me, knows that I am very organized and that I like to plan ahead. I like to know what's going to take place before it happens.

Having that type of personality can cause you to worry a lot. When you have faith, you spend less time worrying. Instead, you turn over the things that you can not control or change to God. So that's what I'm doing with every issue that I'm facing right now in my life. I'm giving it to God. Yes, I think about things, I strategize, I'm preoccupied, but it's not as bad as it use to be.

I know that God will take care of me no matter what the situation looks like. He is already taking care of me even when I don't expect it at times. In order to sacrifice, you have to believe that God will provide you with whatever you have given up and even more.  If something doesn't work out the way that you expected, then it wasn't a part of God's plan for your life. I believe that without God in my life, I would fail.

Faith is not knowing what the answer is, but believing that God will work that situation out. If you try to do it in your own power then you don't have faith. If your faith is never tested, then you can't truly know that you have faith.
