I dreamed a dream

I love this song from Les Miserables!

Have you been disappointed by the loss of a dream? Maybe that dream was a ministry, a job, a relationship, a person?

This is something that I will be discussing with a youth group this week.

In my own life I have felt let down at various times and disappointed by unexpected change.

Though, nothing has hit me more cruelly than the loss of my wife Jennica last April. Today would be our 2 year wedding anniversary. In some ways there are still days that I am severely disappointed and lonely. I often wonder why God allowed her to unknowingly suffer from brain cancer and that we didn’t know about it until 3 hours before she went to be with Jesus. Although, I am often reminded through looking at pictures, reading love notes, and talking with others how blessed I was to know and love her. That God blessed us with one year of marriage.

I now have a much more eternal mindset about life and the choices I make. I’m nowhere near perfect, but I do desire God more and I try to do my best to share Jesus with people in any way that I can. I know that even though I may not understand God’s plan right now or ever, that he has proven to me through countless examples that he is faithful and trustworthy. I will share more later, but until then- thanks for reading, sharing, and being a part of my processing as I continue to write my blog!
