Life is like a roller coaster. There will be twists and turns and loops. There is no doubt that there will jolts of excitement, frustration, sadness, anxiety. This roller coaster of life will bring about its own roller coaster of emotions. We never know what lies ahead in life; nor, do we know what lies around tomorrow's corner.
This past week has had way too many ups and downs, extreme highs and extreme lows. But you know what? The God I serve -- Creator of all the universe -- the Savior of my life -- Jesus ... has been with me the whole time. I have held onto His hand even tighter this week and even tighter at times and have felt so much of Him comforting me. There is NO WAY I could go through this deployment without Jesus in my life. It won't always be easy, and sometimes I may feel anxiety -- especially while I'm waiting for a phone call or message from my dear honey; but, His (God's) promises are what I hold onto.
"Cast your burden on the LORD, and He shall sustain you; He shall never permit the righteous to be moved" Psalm 55:22 NKJV.
