Where is Truth?

Sometimes, we need to tell our feelings the truth, and sometimes it is hard.  This week it has been hard.  I wish I could have slept through it. I was stressed about chemo.  I was supposed to get my blood drawn on Friday the 24th, so that I could start Friday the 3rd.  I decided […]

“Lord, I just want to be healed.”

On February 4, 2012, I (Kendra) thought I was going to die.  Without going into too much detail, I had been experiencing cramping and bleeding for hours.  I was miscarrying my third child at home.  As I was trying to change positions with the hope of being more comfortable, I realized I couldn’t see.  I […]

Isolation

  Lonely. Isolated. Depressed. How easily these words seem to go together. I’ve (Amy) spoken with some friends who are professional counselors, inquiring about how serious my depression is/could be (I found out a couple years ago that it runs in my family…which explained so much about my life). The point they kept coming back […]

Scabs and Scars

  Forgiveness.You probably know the verses, same as I do. Jesus tells Peter to forgive not seven times, but seventy times seven times (Matthew 18:22). Even if someone does us wrong seven times in one day, we’re commanded to forgive them (Luke 17:3-4). We are to forgive others just as we have been forgiven of […]

Giving the Pain a Purpose

  Since Tuesday, when I release my most recent blog, several people have told me that I am strong.  When I am told this, my mouth says, “Thank you.”  My internal dialog says, “Good job faking it.”  I know that I serve the strong and powerful God, but I sure don’t feel strong.  I know […]

My Womb Cries Out

Nadirah Angail recently beautifully wrote a post, describing the pain of many women when it relates to having children.  This post focuses on the pain of three women.  The first woman mourns because she has not been able to have children.  The second woman deals with criticism because she has a large family (5 kids).  The […]

Reconciliation: Bringing People Together

Recently, our church hosted a lock-in (the youth spent the night at the church.)  As you probably already know, when you get tired your filter is weaken and you are more likely to say what you are thinking.  So I noticed that through the night, as the youth were becoming more tired, there are more […]

Belonging together

Sometimes, some concepts seem to reoccur.  When this happens, I try to be alert, because often God is trying to send a message. Recently, I have been reminded how important belonging is. In Sunday School, our discussion somehow included how much our new church has done for us.  I appreciative of the efforts they have […]
