Thank you for this talk. It is a good one to come back to and remind myself. However, I don't understand why you talk about a risk of loss with miracles. I have had to trust G_d all of my life primarily because I have not had a lot of the basic things people grow up with. Yet still when I face a hard financial circumstance again I just want to escape it, find a place to bury my head, and pretend it is not there. I also don't have a lot of support for my faith so it is a good reminder to say I don't have to do things that are not right. It is easy when I am surrounded by people who are also doing the right thing. However, for some reason I am here with people who mock me. I have to learn to respond graciously. Reply
