I have also realized how important the second word is in that message: Again. One evening my hubby and I were walking our dog and in the middle of the road with fields on either side of us and stars sparkling above us, I broke down and cried out in frustration and overwhelming grief asking how was I to know if that peace came from God or if I somehow manufactured it on my own?!? I am so honored and relieved that God answered my question. He heard my broken sobs. If God is asking me to trust again, then that means I would have had to trust him a first time. Such peace those two words from a caring friend have given me...they have spoken volumes!
Our hearts are open to what the future holds. I have NO clue what that may be. But it feels so good to trust Him once again and know in my heart--not just my head--that God truly cares and loves us.
