Eileen Benthal reflects on her longtime family home — and moving on: "God’s love endures and sustains us, especially when He asks us to get out of the boat, leave our home and take a walk of faith on the water."
God will always give us what we are really asking for — the wisdom to know that life is deeper than our answered prayers, that every life and trial holds a purpose and we are never alone in our struggles.
Most of us waver between courage and fear, tossed about by waves of anxiety and difficulties of life that threaten my faith. Like Peter, we do better when we don’t look down at the waves and keep our eyes on Jesus.
I am looking up for feathers floating from the sky, for mourning doves and butterflies, and I’m listening for still, small voices whispering I love you’s in the summer breeze and singing songs from heaven.
