1.Have you experienced God’s faithfulness at a difficult time? Tell as much or as little as you like…
Absolutely I have! Having a mom who is manic/bipolar, I definetely have turned to God during all those times she was sick. Losing a camp friend in April also was a time I turned to God. Her and her mom were in a car accident. They both were too young to die. I can think of so many times in my life when God was the first person I turned too!
2. Have you experienced a dark night of the soul, if so what brought you through? You know honestly I dont remember ever experiencing a dark night of the soul in my life.
3. Share a Bible verse, song, poem that has brought you comfort? Psalm 23, “Footprints in the Sand” After thinking about this a little longer, I decided to come back and add to this question. As of recently, it is the song “My Savior, My God” by Aaron Schust. It was played at a friend and her mom’s funeral. This friend always had this playing in her office according to the youth she ministered too. Every time I hear it it now brings tears to my eyes. The words have a completely different meaning.
4. Is “why suffering” a valid question? Yes I think it is. Sometimes we just need to ask that question to help get through life.
5. And on a lighter note- you have reached the end of a dark and difficult time- how are you going to celebrate?
Im going to spend it with family and friends. Im not sure what we would do but probably something that involves a lot of laughing!
