God, If I’m Being Honest… (An Open Letter)

God,

This is my honest letter to you.

I know you’re all knowing and ever present, but there is a part of me that thinks I know better than you. A part of me thinks I can plan and  execute my life better than you can. I know, it’s crazy. But this is my honest letter. Sometimes you take too long and I prefer to take matters into my own hands and make things happen myself. I know what you’ve called me to do so I made plans  Continue reading “God, If I’m Being Honest… (An Open Letter)”

How Are You Viewing Your Life Journey?

Contentment. What does it mean to be content?

The dictionary definition says, “ the state of being contented; satisfaction; ease of mind.”

I like the last part; ease of mind.

Earlier in the year, I was praying for a new job.  It took a while, but I finally got the job I had been praying for. But lately, I’ve been dissatisfied.  Continue reading “How Are You Viewing Your Life Journey?”

The one who wants to discover the reason they were created.

Why Didn’t Anyone Tell Me?

Why didn’t anyone tell me THIS is what it feels like?

I’ve been around church people my whole life. I used to get so mad when my mom would make my younger brother and I go to church with her on Wednesday evenings. I remember how annoyed I was when I went to school the day after the blinky do shoes episode of My Wife and Kids aired, and everyone was talking about it. I was mad I didn’t get to watch it because I was at church. I couldn’t comprehend why people would willingly spend a weeknight in church. Continue reading “Why Didn’t Anyone Tell Me?”

I Want To Be Free!

“I thought by now everything would have worked out. I thought by now I would’ve accomplished my goals. I thought I’d be there by now. God if you love me so much why am I still struggling? God when will I be free?”

Do any of these things sound familiar?

When everything is going wrong, it’s easy to turn to God and say, why me? Don’t you love me? But it’s important that we don’t equate Continue reading “I Want To Be Free!”

Learning To Let Go And Let God

You know how people always say we shouldn’t worry and trust God to take care of our worries? I’ve always felt like it was so easy to say, but so much harder to do. But you know what?

I’m finally learning to let go and let God. Things I used to worry about so often don’t even get the time of day in my thoughts anymore. I’m finally learning to take the things that are bothering me to God and leave them at the altar. My whole life I’ve been hearing that’s what I need to do, and I’ve always been like how??? Do you realize how hard Continue reading “Learning To Let Go And Let God”
