June 1, 2010 I published the last issue (at least for a while) of Girl Talk my teen girl magazine. Since this blog was originally designed for the purpose of publishing weekly devotions for the magazine and later the magazine itself I decided to create another blog that isn’t connected to Girl Talk.

I’ll probably still publish book reviews or other items here now and again but you’ll more often find me at Trusting Him with Today. I hope you’ll stop by

And Blessed is he...

6 And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me.
Matt 11:6

I found the above scripture running continuously through my head today as I questioned God about situations in my life that I just can't seem to understand. Unfortunately it seems that heaven itself was silent and that God refused to answer.

Like John the Baptist who simply wanted to know, "Are you the Christ or should we look for another?" I received no answer from God today. I confess I was a bit angry and yes even offended that in my distress he seemed to be so silent and almost uncaring. However in the midst of my deepest pain and anguish I heard his still, small voice saying, "And blessed are you Bernie if you are not offended with me."

I don't understand why he seems to be so quiet when it feels like I need him most but I know that whatever I'm going through He's working it out for my good and I will understand it all in His time.
