Junior year has definitely been one heck of a year. I've been the busiest and most stressful this school year more than I have been in years past; yes, even my senior year in high school wasn't this stressful. Among all the craziness of this year, I have really seen God working in my life.
Have you ever had something weighing so heavy on your mind that it seems impossible to trust God?
