A hopeful word of encouragment from a COVID-19 patient/believer. Stay hopeful, friends.
Have you been calling and crying out to God? But it appears He is ignoring you and the trial you’re facing. Each day, the end is nowhere in sight and you’re hanging on by a thread or a last shred of faith. Have you considered this is season God wants you to be in?
At the end of my rope, battling depression, the grief of this year and pass five years have brought me to this moment where I quit my job and leave my career as an educator.
Often those who live out the Christian life can attest that the amount of losses we experience seem to outweigh our throughout our spiritual journey. But what happens, when we run our race and we fail, miss the mark, and continually stumble again and again. What do we do when we’re close to giving up because we believe our sin is too great?
I been privately fighting and struggling with accepting the Sovereignty of God and now I am seeing how my choices can have a positive and negative effect on my life. I am learning what to surrender to God’s hands and what choices I can make to better my situation.
Those realization or coming to Jesus moments, we all need them and pray for them, but we are never prepared to encounter them or embrace the truth of what we learn about ourselves. Recently, a particular moment and conversation with a friend, reveals the ugliness within myself and how I say want better for my life…but do I really tho…? Do I really want to the transformation I wonder and envision for myself?
Sometimes, it is another Valentines Day where you did not ask to be single! It is the old, mind numbing pain where you remember a-ha I don’t have a companion yet to share in my joys and tribulations and sometimes, it feels like you will never meet a person who finds you special or worth loving. I know how you feel, my friend, because I am single too and I know you do not want those cliche remarks, especially from your married friends, so I am going to give you some encouragment that helped me on this commercially successful day. A love letter from God, written by a single to another single! Love you!
Worrying people never get peace and yet we still worry, no matter how many times God tells us not to worry. Trust me, I been there and today I was there. Read about my musings today in Nomad’s Log Day 2!
I did not expect this morning filled with anguish and doubt and fear remaining stuck in my situation to end like this at work. Especially since our safety was at risk. The decision I am facing I know is big one, but I am waiting from wisdom and direction from the Lord.
A lot of times, we want to chuck up the deuces and tell life, “adios!” Doing our thing and making our own decisions and following destiny as the plans we have laid sounds so alluring. Especially, when we see other people seemingly living out the lives they are presenting through social media. However, our desire to control who we are and where we are going is an illusion. And always better to leave that control in the hands of God.
