This past year was a difficult year for the Yoder family. It was a challenge physically, emotionally, spiritually. Almost every area of life was full of uncertainty. As human beings it’s easy to feel sorry for ourselves and internalize it. I wish I could tell you we handled it great. We didn’t, at first. We got frustrated. Anger crept in. Played the blame game. When we felt lost and hopeless, we FINALLY gave it all to God. As a Christ follower why did it take so long? Because we’re human. We wanted to fix it. As parents and grandparents it’s okay to struggle in front of the kids in our lives. Why? Because it gives them a chance to see us use God’s Word and His promises to give us assurance that God’s ways are always best.
