Keeping it Real...
Welcome! No matter how you found this, God knew you'd be here today. May you absorb the message He has for you. In 2011 I shared through my writing, today I've learned there is more to me than just writing. I have the energy and passion to share with others. Sometimes through Facebook live and others with my blog and most importantly, I've learned my passion to cook and bake is a vessel to share my writing and live presentations, while glorifying God in the process. I just needed to let go, and follow His lead.
Fast forward to present, I look at this picture and realize I wasn't hiding much. Although family filled the private waiting room, the distance in my eyes reminds me of how alone I felt in the midst of being surrounded by such support and loving people. I'm looking at something, yet in truth, I was just sitting. Dazed. Overwhelmed. Confused. I wanted to go home. I wanted Heidi to be found and the night mare to end. The pain consumed and overwhelmed me. Heidi was and is physically lost yet for more than a decade, I was emotionally and spiritually lost.
I'm thankful God used one child to remind me of how much He loves me. I was never alone even though I felt that way. Today, Heidi is still missing and with upcoming court hearings in the future, some days are overwhelming BUT this time, I know, 100%, I'm never alone. God is always right here with me. I'm completely His...no more loneliness or running away from Him. Planting my heart, hope, and faith in God because He is All-Knowing, Ever-Present, and All-Powerful. Thank goodness...if you feel alone, close your eyes and say "Hello", God is with you, just waiting to hold you in His arms. We are never alone, even when we choose to be, God's right there by our side in case we call to Him.
Any temptation you face will be nothing new. But God is faithful,
Take a moment to listen to this song by Among the Thirsty before answering the following question. Sometimes we give God a little when we really need to give our all.
What helps you overcome feelings of frustration, fear, loneliness, or being overwhelmed?
