Our Feelings May Fail Us, But Jesus Will Not

Our Feelings May Fail Us, But Jesus Will Not

Two years ago, I sat in a therapist’s office in the greatest distress I could imagine. Where are You, Lord? If You love me, why would You allow me to suffer like this? I had always been distrustful of the mental health-care system, yet there I was, desperate for whatever help I could get. Our insurance […]

A Fresh Start

A Fresh Start

The word “fresh” brings so many good things to mind … I’m a morning person, so a fresh new day is at the top of my “favorite things” list. It’s quiet and filled with opportunity. It hasn’t been fouled up with trouble and failures just yet. Ahhh, fresh new mercies, that’s what I’m talkin’ bout. My feel-good, hope-filled […]

Resistance Training for the Soul

This morning I woke up with more feelings of the downward drag than usual. Negative thoughts criss-crossed my mind, performing exactly as they’re designed to, to take me down emotionally & spiritually. I ran down the list of physical things that could have me feeling more vulnerable… couple of clues there. Fears of every sort […]
