WHY "NEHEMIAH"? ... The Old Testament Prophet, Nehemiah, rallied his community to rebuild the broken city walls of Jerusalem. In the same fashion, the walls of Springfield and Clark County, Ohio need to be replaced, fortified, and strengthened--stone by stone. This work must begin with the families, the foundation of any community, that live and work within the walls.
Thoughts from Shelley
I wish I could say that I am always able to rest in God's goodness and believe that He is giving me what is the very best for me. But I have a way of wanting God to do what I think He should do in my world and I often have to struggle to let go of my expectations.
The "letting go" part is hard. In my mind, it's not unreasonable to ask God to prevent disaster in my life. I'd like to believe that my relationship with Him allows me to have protection, provision, peace, freedom from pain. After all, there are places in the Bible where He promises all those things.
