Connecting Columbia Union Seventh-day Adventists
It had been a difficult and long month. Rent was due, and we were running out of diapers and food. We were going crazy.
On Friday evening, after our “Sabbath Welcome” worship, I prayed, “Lord, I can’t carry these worries into the Sabbath. I’m just going to give them to you! I know You will take care of us.” At that moment, an amazing peace entered my heart.
In my early twenties, I began wondering about everything I had experienced in my life. I endured verbal abuse as a child. My heart was badly broken at age 16. I was kicked out of my home at 17. I experienced a fire that claimed all my belongings at 20. What was my life’s purpose?
We may not be called to cross a literal river, but we are admonished to indeed “arise, and go over” our own personal Jordans, and to help others accomplish this too.
