3.7.2022 – God isn’t “complicated”…

…but He is complex. A lot of times God does things much differently than we expect. His ways are not our ways. We must learn to draw closer, draw nearer, and look closely… to see Him, and to understand. But that doesn’t mean that God is “complicated“… He’s complex. 🌈 But He makes it simple… Read More 3.7.2022 – God isn’t “complicated”…

2.19.2022 – Learning to Overcome

One of the things I am learning about living life in the midst of facing fears and anxiety, is learning to accept… that fear and anxiety might not always just “go away” when I’d like them to “just go away.” Learning to accept… that I won’t always be swept up and “rescued” from all of… Read More 2.19.2022 – Learning to Overcome

I’ll be honest… it seems I’ve been facing a battle within the place of my time of communion with the Lord.

Heavenly Father, I’m struggling… I’m having to work through some things that I never expected would be this much of a struggle to work through at this point in my life. It’s humbling.

You know what? Over the last couple of weeks, to be very honest, I have dipped into this “what if, what if” kind of thinking.
