Today marks an important day in my home:
it’s the beginning of another semester of seminary for Jonathan.
This semester, he’s taking 12 credits – thankfully, he’s able to take all of them online, so there’s no traveling involved. After he finishes this semester, he will have enough credits to apply for a doctoral program. If he’s accepted, we plan to step into that world in January.
A few weeks ago, as I was praying about his schooling, I decided to begin a Trust Journal.
Inside, I’ve begun to write down specific ways the Lord is providing for our family.
Things like a friend sharing their garden fresh cucumbers with us,
an offer for free date night babysitting,
gift cards leftover from last Christmas that enable us to have a totally free meal + coffee out,
a new-to-us infant car seat from a family who thought *maybe* we could use it…
these are things that I most surely will forget if I don’t write them down.
My goal in writing down these blessings is to strengthen my trust in the One Who sees all, knows all, and is in perfect control.
