a good story.

So a few weeks back I wrote here about how God is writing a good story for us. I then proceeded to spend the next month being stressed out and worried that maybe the end of the story really wasn't going to be that good. And maybe I needed to help God out. There were some twists and turns and I just wanted to skip all of the trusting stuff and just get to the end of the story already.
Two weeks ago on Saturday night while waiting for Mark to come home from a wedding I pulled out my blog and read the entry I had written back in September. "Whoever wrote this had a lot more faith than I do" I thought sarcastically. But I felt God tugging at my heart. I needed to let go and trust again. The next morning I was listening to the radio broadcast of a local church and in the short time I listened the preacher must have said at least ten times "God is writing the story. God is writing the story." I was driving down the road with tears streaming down my face. I got it Lord. I will trust you. I release control.
Three days later we found out about the house we are going to rent in December.

he is a good daddy. he writes good stories. my heart need not fear.
