This weekend was one of them.
The things God has been doing in my husband are amazing, encouraging, beautiful, and nearly indescribable. To watch Dan be in the Word each and every single day, to be sharing his faith with so many with no holds bar, to be so on fire; it is just a huge gift and a blessing to get to be married to this man. He is truly leading me in a way I had no idea to expect (but had always wanted) and I am so humbled to get to be so close to him! He spoiled me this weekend, and especially last night, when he gave me a neck rub and foot massage for absolutely no reason other than to "pamper me" he said. Thank You God!
Another big thing that's been going on is the biggest faith struggle I've ever had in my entire life. It had been a few weeks coming but last week it officially hit me like a ton of bricks and I just felt so abandoned and passed over by God; I felt so far down in a deep dark valley and knew I had no way to get out on my own. So, the Lord graciously used my parents to lead me to some awesome passages in the Bible which really encouraged my heart, and slowly but surely, I'm trusting the Lord again, even though I feel a bit distanced from Him still.
And an update on my no-sugar diet: today is officially one whole week! I can't believe it, because I never dreamed I would be able to give up such an addicting thing. Anyway, this week I'll be started to eat much more Paleo, as I picked up some cage-free organic eggs, a ton of veggies, organic beef, and cage-free organic chicken! Excited to be on week 2 of this journey!
