One thing I learned when my friends in Virginia Beach were grieving the loss of the men who died in the hit on the helicopter in Afghanistan: I could not be there physically. The ONLY thing I could do was pray. So pray I did, and have been. Freda reminded me that if I had been in Virginia Beach, I would have been so busy DOING that I would not have been praying the way I did so far away. I also refreshed all the Scripture that I have learned over the years. I am a nerdy Bible Girl. I hoard Scripture on notecards, and they are stashed all over the house. If I find a verse or passage that I like, I "keep" it for myself. Basically, I break an overwhelming Book (The Bible) into bite sized pieces. Well let me tell you, those notecards paid off. I gathered them and texted one after another to Allie and Meiling. It felt like I was not doing much, but God spoke to me in such a strong way. (And Allie said the timing was terrific. Just what was needed.) Reminding me that all those years of reading were right there to pull from. It was like digging a well in the rain. I don't need the well when it is raining, but boy, when things get dry, that is the first place you run.
I love fashion. I love culture. But I need to balance my interest with what is best for me. And that is relying upon God's Word for my every need.
So it's all about balance. Where do you struggle with balance?
