a break from God

Am I the only one who has ever been burnt out on God? I know it sounds bad and may be hard to admit, but I can tell you that there is freedom in the honesty of it. One of the most quoted scriptures in the Bible is Jeremiah 29:13, which says “You will seek… Continue reading a break from God

Survival Mode

I’m currently in survival mode. Maybe you’ve been here before, in a place where you can’t look past tomorrow without falling apart. Its a place void of dreaming and vision, a place where you are just fighting to hang in there. You’re certainly not thriving. You’re simply trying to survive. You don’t even feel like… Continue reading Survival Mode

He had down syndrome and went to be with the Lord at the young age of 25. The grief that… Continue reading big faith

Let me just start by saying that the last few days have been so crazy. From people in the hospital for little viruses to big scary cancers, to relying on the wrong people and the wrong things to make me feel better, to falling back into old chains and old patterns and living for a moment… Continue reading faith
