Living a Parable

If we didn’t have to live an imperfect life here on the earth… would we truly be able to grasp… to understand…to experience that God’s ways are higher than our ways? “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord. “For as the heavens are higher than the… Read More Living a Parable

Have you ever gone through something… And then you realize… that now you truly “understand” what it’s like to go through it, to experience it… the hardship, the trial, the struggle, the scary health situation, the feeling of unknown, the mental spiral, the very real panic attack, the challenge, the mistake, the failure, —whatever it… Read More “Now I truly understand…”

Night Light

Were you ever afraid of the dark as a child? Oh, I was. …I would call it more of a “tormenting level” of fear of the darkness. And somehow, I knew, even as a tiny little child, that if I just turned on a “light”—even the tiniest little bit of light… I would be “okay.”… Read More Night Light

Something “Better” than a “Quick Fix”

I remember in the very, very beginning of when I started facing some things in my heart, before the Lord… When I came into the light… It was more like I came into a realization—I began to recognize—that ‘my way’ of living life just wasn’t working.
