Thank you for your welcome. What I am thrilled about these days is that I do have faith. I am very grateful for that . . . knowing where I came from, this is definitely good news. Now trust . . . well, we are working on that one! I know His way is better than my way, however, letting go completely is still a struggle for me.
I'm not much of a debator. I pretty much allow people their journey and encourage people to come to my church when they inquire or struggle (no takers yet!) or let them know it's OK to struggle and doubt and when they are ready, the offer is still open. They don't even have to come to my church. I believe praying for people and getting out of God's way allows him to work in their lives in great ways. I don't always succeed, as my stuff gets in the way, but, again, I'm working on it!
