On My Way.

“Above all, keep your love for one another at full strength, since love covers a multitude of sins.” -1 Peter 4:8

My Lord is just the best.

I find it hard to use words to describe the incredible love story that He and I have.

He has saved me from myself. He has saved me from the evil thoughts that the Wicked One puts in my head. He has saved me from the belief that I was not worth the fight, the ridiculous notion that I was not worth this life I have been given.

I have been surrounded lately by questions about my faith.

I have been asked why bad things happen. Why horrific, sad, earth shattering things exist in this world that we live in. Why, oh, why?

I have said it before, and I will say it again…

The Wicked One rules this world right now. He will continue to have horrible things happen in order to try to tear us away from God. But God has an incredible response to these horrible and sad things that happen:

He sends us people.

He sends us people we did not even realize we needed.

People who will be strong for us when we are not able to be. People who will hold our hand when we feel like depression is going to swallow us whole. People who will be the light to us in a sea of what seems like never-ending blackness.

So if you’re feeling a little lost today, I ask that you send up a prayer to God. Tell him you are in need of some love and help.

I can guarantee, someone will come along to be just that right when you least expect it.

Have faith, pray, and never give up hope that God is listening always!

For You.

What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?“-Romans 8:31

It is so easy to praise God and love on Him when things are good. It is easy to the point where we do not even always think to praise Him because life is just going so well.

Not so easy when things are not so good, right?

That does tend to be the reminder of God then though. Like where the heck are you? I am going through Hell. Aren’t you supposed to be here?


I want to share something with you that became the most important and influential piece of knowledge I have ever come to realize.

God is for us, not against us. It is the Devil who does the wickedness and evil that happens to us in this world.

He is the one who puts death, sickness, injury, anger, frustration, and heartache into our lives.

Not God.

Not God ever.

Because those are evil things, and God has no evil in Him.

Once this piece of knowledge came into my heart and I accepted it for what it really was, my life changed.

Bad things still happened, and let’s be real…bad things will continue to happen.

But when they do, I realize where they come from and who they come from.

And that God is for me.

You see, God and I become a team now especially during those times.

He sends me the people I need to overcome my obstacles. He sends me His strength. He breathes His love into me. We get through it together.

I no longer jump to complete anger with God anymore when bad things happen.

I jump to having the pleading heart of a child asking for Her father, and He comes running every time.

I praise the God who is for me, not against me, in all times, and in all ways.
