My Set Free Story

January 17, 2020

The chains that wrapped around me were subtle and seemingly good, until they had me in a depression death grip that would not allow me to breathe.

Restored, Digging into 1 Peter 5:10

January 08, 2020

This verse struck me in both its relatability and its hope. Just as Jesus told us, we will indeed have trouble in this world. People will get sick. Jobs will be lost. Rejection will pierce hearts. Wars will demolish. None of this surprises God. He knows that this is the sad state of our fallen world. I am thankful that the hard seasons in my life did not sneak up on my Maker like they did me.
