Trusting God in Face of Fear

It's been a bit since I last wrote. We've been pretty busy here with just our normal routines. I haven't started school yet, but I'm not complaining! So I've been listening to the Daily Audio Bible with Mom lately, and today the book of Esther was being read. Hearing about how Esther made a stand for her people, I was amazed at the courage God gave Esther, and how much faith she had in Him. Sometimes you don't know what will happen, but you have to trust God to keep you safe. We may not be in danger of death or torture for being Jews, but we still must trust that God can protect us. I've been working on trusting Him when I'm scared, and so far He's coming through for me. Just think of what he can do for you!



AnnaLee's First Post

Hi!  I'm AnnaLee, the resident “pastor's kid” at Pine Hill.  Dad asked me if I'd like to have my own blog, so I'm helping out on here!  This week is VBS here, so we've been very busy.  I've had a lot of fun this year because it's my first year in youth.  We're learning about Paul and his adventures.  At one point, we were talking about how God created fun.  I was thinking about this, and, being a dreamer myself, thought, "God must have the WILDEST imagination!"  I have ferrets, you see, and I call them my “furry Snakes”.  Who but God could have imagined anything NEAR my Ferrets?  God is one of my favorite people because of his creativity and love of irony!  (After all, who invented Irony in the first place? hmm?)  I love playing with LEGOs because it's like I'm creating my own Universe like he did.  (I'm glad he invented LEGOs in someone's head!  The world would be less fun without them!) Jesus liked to have fun too sometimes!  He liked to hang out with his friends like I do.

Well, I have to go, Bye!
