This blog is about real life, real struggles, and real reasons to believe the God of the bible is alive and well today.
For decades I have wrestled with faith and sometimes struggled to understand Why? Just Why? In the past I have doubted God’s presence in my life, even questioned His existence. Does He truly love for me, and does my life have any meaningful purpose? The answer to both those questions is yes.
I have experience great joy in marriage and the births of my children. I have also endured tremendous sorrow in the deaths of my son Joshua, my daughter Sara, friends and family. I have wept in the presence of God’s Spirit and I have hid from God in shame of my behaviour.
If any of this sounds familiar to you, my hope and prayer is that you will find the comfort and understanding I have in God’s truth. It is only through struggle we grow strong. We are never alone, and though we may feel everyone has abandoned us, God never will.
Through it all, God has proved Himself to me and this blog is my testimony to that. He is faithful when I am not, He has the power to change what I cannot, and his love is unconditional and unending.
John 16:32,33 “But the time is coming—indeed it’s here now—when you will be scattered, each one going his own way, leaving me alone. Yet I am not alone because the Father is with me. I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.”
I encourage you to leave comments whether you agree or disagree with subjects I write about. Remember, I am human, imperfect and on the same journey you are on. We might just be at different rest stops along the way.
If you want prayer, leave a comment and I will pray for your need.
