When I finally decided to do what God wanted, I realized this first hand. Within the span of one week, my wife and I had several negative things happen in our lives. First, a close family friend died of a massive heart attack. Two days after that, we found out that her grandmother was diagnosed with lung cancer. Two days after that, my wife miscarried what would have been our fourth child. Then, to top off the week, I found out I had outstanding warrants from things that happened before I rededicated my life to the Lord. So, as I was sitting in jail, I had time to think about what had happened in that week. It would have been so easy for me to blame God for the things that had happened, but instead, I knew that it was not God who caused the things to happen to us. So, I had to lean on God more, and in return, I became closer to God during that time.
