I’m an over-thinker. A figure-outer. And I’ve been really struggling with faith lately. I’ve been constantly trying to figure out things for myself, which has left me with a lot of questions. I’ve used these questions to put God at a distance, safely keeping Him there until He answers everything. Honestly, I still have many… Continue reading to the over-thinkers & figure-outers
Worth. Value. Identity. These can be intimidating words if your life looks anything like mine used to look. I’m not sure where and when I lost it, but I know that I searched hard to find it.

That guy that says he know the Lord but his lifestyle says the opposite and now people have given up on him?

Lately, I haven’t been hearing from God as much as I used to and as much as I would like to. I kept thinking, “What changed?” “Why isn’t He speaking to me anymore?” and overthinking about it. Then I realized that I hear most from God when I write things out, even if I don’t… Continue reading worth
