For someone living with the many different forms of anxiety or depression, attending church can be next to impossible.

Remember when we were younger and we were exploding with energy, that as we … Continue reading Take The Time To Rest…
There are two facts you can take absolute comfort in. Fact number one, you are never alone. God is always with you, and if you are a child of God, He is inside you experiencing these feelings first hand. He is always there. And fact number two, He understands completely. Jesus Christ humbled Himself by coming to earth and putting on this flesh suit so that he could experience being in the flesh first hand. Why? So that we could have a High Priest who not only had sympathy for us, BUT even deeper, He has something even more powerful - empathy. He literally strapped on our earthly shoes and walked a mile in them. He knows what we are going through. He knows what emotional pain feels like. He didn't have to do that, but he did...because He loves us and desired to understand us with actual empathy.

In a day and age where women fight for the right to be hard, I want to be soft. I want to admit life hurts, that I do cry, and sometimes I fall apart. I want to tell someone "No! I'm not OK!" and it be as admirable as saying "I'm OK" even when it is only a lie.
Do you ever feel like you are drowning in life? Do you ever feel like someone snuck up behind you and kicked you into the deep end of the pool of life and you have no idea how to swim? Perhaps feeling like flailing and thrashing around are your only chance to survive, desperately trying … Continue reading Learning To Float….
Ghethsemane is an olive press, not a garden or actual geographical location. It's true meaning unlocks so many truths about what our Savior went through that it is a story that must be retold until it's true biblical meaning replaces the one we have accepted for years. That there is a Garden of Ghethsemane somewhere … Continue reading Ghethsemane Is Not A Place, It’s A Thing
