Bound for Japan...

So tomorrow morning my flight departs Cleveland at 7:30 AM, headed to New Jersey for a layover, and then on to Tokyo from there. I have learned a lot from this leave that I will be taking with me. If anything I have realized how much I am going to be needing to depend on the Lord constantly. Many of you know about my struggles I have been through since I was home. Going to New Albany, and all the heartache there with Hannah. One lesson I have learned is that I need to just surrender to the Lord...surrender my loneliness mostly. Like I've said, I thought I had, but it turns out I hadn't. This is one of my New Years resolutions, is to just start spending more time in God's word, and just relying on him more and more every day.

I'm pretty excited also because Hannah's family sent me "My Utmost for His Highest" for Christmas, and I'm excited about getting into that this year. I also realized how much I need to start getting back into memorizing scripture...that has always been one of my weak points, ever since I was back in AWANA's.

So anyways...if any of you want to share your new years resolutions, I would be glad to hear them! May God bless you all this year!

Hello, I know that you do not know me, but I have been reading your blog for a few months now. I know that right now you are going through a hard time in your life, and that the prayers of your family and friends are with you. I know that right now you may think that this pain that you are feeling will never go away, but it will. Many times we hear this, but it is hard to believe fully. I just wanted to tell you that I am praying for you. I normally do not comment upon others blogs that I do not know, but I know what you are going through, for I just recently went through the same thing. But I just want to say that God is good. I know now that He was teaching me to lean upon Him more, and to wait patiently for his timing in this area. Like you it is very difficult for me to wait patiently. God is good though, His vision for all of His children's lives is far better than anything that we can imagine. We are willing to settle for less than what God has in store for us. Just know that I am praying for you. Also, thank you for the service that you do for my country. Thanks for being a light for the Lord in places that I myself am unable to reach. My prayers are with you and those who help in the fight for freedom for America. Stay strong in the Lord.
