Hard to believe

Sometimes I struggle with writing posts. The struggle is not that I don’t know what to say, but actually believing what God gives me to say. As strange as it may seem, motivating, encouraging, and inspiring, is so easy and natural to me, but only when I do it for others. God speaks and instructsContinue reading “Hard to believe”

I can relate

Homeless and staying in a hotel? I have been there No food, water, lights, or gas? I have been there Experiencing never-ending trials and tribulations? I have been there Felt unappreciated, inadequate, and unloved? I have been there Felt rejected, ostracized, and constantly put down?

It never happened

I’ve never been a fan of insects, particularly flies, mosquitoes, and bees. They’re annoying yet impactful little bugs, that never seem to go away, no matter how many times you swat them. They’re constantly swarming around waiting to sting and bite you, and when they do, they quickly fly away leaving you in discomfort andContinue reading “It never happened”

Seasons change

The leaves have fallen and the trees have become bare, frail, and empty, just as you are. The vibrancy that once was, is now no more, but it’s not the trees I’m speaking of. Life’s strong winds are so powerful, that no matter which way you turn, it’s always against you. After being tossed about,Continue reading “Seasons change”
