Trusting God Doesn’t Require a Backup Plan

I’m in a season of waiting and preparing.  Waiting for the next location, home, job, friendships, and season of life.  I’m preparing for it as much as I can by reading, learning, planning, creating Pinterest boards, and joining Facebook groups.  While reading about Joshua and his big “sun stand still” prayer in Joshua chapter 10,…
