  1. Love your faith filled thoughts coupled with your gut wrenching questions. I have the same questions and feelings, currently looking for hope and a way to keep the faith.

  2. I wish I could believe it. But I’m so weary, so tired of all we’ve been through. Where is the healing for a broken heart when my hope is continually dashed?
    [and if you wonder why I have commented so much on your blog tonight it’s because I identify with or understand so much of what you’ve written. It speaks to me things that a good friend might say, if I only had one to say such things]
    so God bless you

      Oh, Hannah. How I understand! There is a certain kind of weariness that comes with lost dreams. I’ve said the exact same thing. I am just. so. tired.

      But God gives rest to the weary. And that is a promise that I’m clinging to!

      I’m so glad for your comments. It’s such a blessing to know that others are experiencing the same things.

    This is so true! Looking back God’s plan is so far above what I could ever have imagined! But when it’s unfolding it’s sometimes hard and scary. He has an amazing Way of totally filling our hearts but at the same time making me trust, let go, and be transformed. Thank you for writing; it really blesses me. Someone recently sent me Pain Redeemed-it’s so good!

    Thank-you! Well-written, inspiring and encouraging.

  5. Ah yes. Thank you. I’ve had some teary moments lately, of loneliness, disappointment, discouragement and, perhaps worst of all, confusion. This is good. Thank you.

  6. As always, my friend, beautifully written and powerful! Thanking God for you.

      Thank you, dear Julie.

  7. Life is really hard right now. But I know that I’m on the path that God wants me on and I’m actually making progress and not just treading water. I’m really tired, but I’m DOING things and not just stand still like a few years ago.

      So glad, Symanntha. God will use this time. I know. {hugs}

  8. All I can say…..with tears flowing…is ‘thank you’….sigh…..

  9. Hi Natasha! Haven’t visited in awhile and so happy to see this (you) in my twitter feed. So happy you know the tender love of a good man. Believing with you for the things that are better than your dreams…of lasting value – yes!

  10. I loved reading this, its true for me too. When I see our story, I see how God smashed all the little perfect pictures I had conjured in my head on what I thought I wanted and needed (fairy tale in some aspects) and replaced them with something so different, but better. A slow growing on me love thats perfect <3

  11. Struck straight to the core and ministered to by your post. Seeing how God works when we have our “own” plans in mind. Thank you!
