PRAISE & PRAYER PROMPT ••• One of the biggest struggles I deal with in my Christian journey is trusting the unknown to God. I want a map. I want the details. It’s the side-effect of being a control-freak. But we serve a God who often operates on a need-to-know-basis for that very reason—He wants us to trust Him.

I will sneeze my head off for the next month (even more than normal since I’m a chronic sneezer no matter what time of the year and I’m stubborn and won’t take allergy medicine).

PRAISE & PRAYER PROMPT ••• On Sunday afternoon, my husband went to the store to pick up a few things, including a bag of six bell peppers I asked him to get.
