Over the years, as I learned to stand in faith in the face of troubles of all sorts, I wrote essays on what I had learned. I am going through my files this morning, looking at what I had written, and I will be posting the better pieces here. I hope these writings help someone somehow.
The troubles are far from over, BTW. I am currently in the process of selling and giving away most of what I own and hoping to sell my house rather than just lose it, and we are going to be moving out of state in the next couple of weeks. I haven't worked in 2 years due to severe arthritis in my hip, and I am hoping moving to a drier, more stable climate will help me get back to work. In the face of all this, I stand behind every word I wrote, trust in Jesus Christ even so, and dearly hope we will be able to find work and housing when we arrive at our destination. I have always said win or lose, up or down, come what may, better to go through this with the Lord than without Him, and I still mean it. This isn't His fault, and He has strengthened both Robert and myself far beyond what we might have been able to handle any other way... Anyway, here are some of the essays I have written over the years.
