I Stand All Amazed

I'm sitting here staring at the screen. Blogs are kinda funny to me. I originally started this as a, "Hey! This is what we're up to" and now its become more of a blind, "I'm sending this into the oblivion" deal. Most times, I forget that people actually read this. I honestly don't know why they find my ramblings interesting, but its always a shock to receive input. Not that I don't appreciate it, I am just always surprised.

I've been thinking a lot lately. Mostly about how crazy life can be and what kinds of things we're supposed to learn from our challenges. It has made me think a lot about God and what this life really is.

I am always amazed at the challenges that people go through. But even more so, I am amazed at the people going through them. A crisis/challenge/trial in itself can be devastating. Emotionally, physically, mentally, spiritually... One would expect a person to break while experiencing such madness. And maybe we do break.

What amazes me the most, is when that person that has been pushed down & shattered finds the strength to stand up and walk. That sheer act of will. Each agonizing step. It makes me a believer. It makes me hope. It makes me want to stand. It makes me want to reach out. It makes me remember that life can be beautiful.

One of the testimonies this last Sunday came from someone who had a tough year. She had said that she would never be the person she is now and have the faith she does without those trials that she desperately didn't want in her life when they happened. (I don't think you know her actually.)
