So, several months ago, I published a post entitled, Waiting: For Graduation, For Marriage, For Motherhood, For Anything but This. And I want to take it back. Not because Jesus isn't enough or because God doesn't keep His promises like I challenged followers of Jesus Christ to remember. But because, I've been waiting for, and have … Continue reading The Real Story of Waiting: Jesus is Enough
Being faithful to the Lord sometimes looks like pain. Sometimes it looks like disappointment. Sometimes it looks like heartache.

I haven't found any … Continue reading Where’s My Peace?
