I'm really struggling with my writing, like I never have before.
I'm terrified of talking about my faith ----
and yet it's everything to me.
How do you get people to understand how big
and how un-be-lieve-able-ly
it changes everything in life?
How do you get people to understand how,
if they just pay a little attention they will quickly see
that every moment in each of our lives is uniquely designed
in a most wonder-filled way?
How do you write about that without sounding trite?
I know it's possible. I'm just facing a wall of fear right now.
Mostly about what people will think about my faith.
My God is real, and he is present in every moment.
I have no doubt.
I have plenty of real life examples to prove it.
I have to share them with you,
because something in me won't let me not.
So, for example, before I knew I was coming to Colorado for the summer, I asked God if it would be possible for me to have a hiking trail right outside of my back door.
Next thing I know, I have a summer job that includes an employer-provided campsite, and wouldn't you know it, right outside of my back door is a beautiful hiking trail.
Coincidence you say?
When I was a younger believer, I responded the same way.
However, consider this.
My campsite -- the one that is provided by my employer -- is smack dab in the middle of a National Park.
Oh, and one more thing. That National Park also happens to be a WORLD Heritage Site.
AND, as if that wasn't enough, free laundry and wi-fi are included with the campsite.
Now, can you really call that coincidence?
