About
 We all, with the utmost certainty, will encounter adversity in this life. It is through the storms of life that our faith is tested, our fortitude challenged, and true trust in God realized. It's in the dark days that we learn that the Bible is more than just a collection of stories written by ancient people. We find out the truth about our Lord's character, the wisdom behind His words and the depths of His unfathomable love for us. It is when we are overwhelmed with despair that we gain firsthand knowledge of the verse, "when I am weak, He is strong." (2 Cor 12:10) We have a loving, Abba Father, a "Spiritual Daddy," who understands our pain, who grieves with His children through our sadness, and encourages us to soldier on... not by ourselves, but with His divine help. We find our hope in the One who always has a plan, whether we can see it or not... His plan is always for our good (Jeremiah. 29:11). I want to encourage others to press on even when they can't see the light at the end of the tunnel. I want to share what I've learned from personal experience... life does go on, even after deep, life altering losses. God hears our cries, He knows our pain, He challenges us to trust when it makes no earthly sense to. He redeems, He renews, and He carries us when our strength fails us. I want everyone to know that He can and He will turn our mourning to joy, IF we let Him work in us. He longs for us to come to Him with the shattered, broken pieces of our hearts. He wants to make us whole again and restore us to the fullness of joy. Your life course may be altered due to circumstances beyond your control. That doesn't mean the new path won't still end at a glorious, though different, destination. As a follower of Jesus, we can rest assured, as it says in Romans 8:28, that all things work together for our good because we love Him.  I pray you find comfort, hope and encouragement here.

3 REASONS TO STOP IDEALIZING YOUR SPOUSE

3 REASONS TO STOP IDEALIZING YOUR SPOUSE

It’s common for couples to idealize one another early in their relationships. For many people, idealization is the peak of romance. It’s infused in the rush of new love and the excitement of the honeymoon period. But the truth is, idealizing your spouse is harmful to your marriage long-term. That’s because idealization isn’t the same thing as being enamored with, or in love with, your spouse. In fact, idealization is in direct contrast to the Christlike love we should cultivate for one another. It may sound odd, but putting your spouse on a pedestal can damage your marriage.
