Spirit Lead Me Where My Trust is Without Borders

I started this blog/book with a story about letting go of expectations, the story of how I dealt with the loss of a church I loved.  That experience was the catalyst behind what you’ve been reading.  I knew that letting go of expectations meant that I needed to trust Jesus with all of my heart.  I wasn’t sure I did, so I decided to learn as much as I could about what it means to trust God and how to do it.
