Most bloggers are ready weeks in advance with their material. I would NOT be one of those bloggers. Typically, I sit down to write about two or three hours before my deadline, pray for help, sweat a little, grit my teeth some…and start typing in hopes that I’ll have something truly meaningful to share for at least one reader. Tonight is no different.
I don’t mean it to be this way, in fact, there is a standing promise in the back of my mind that swears I’ll never be this late again…but the promise rarely gets kept.
As I sit here…having prayed…and still doing a tad bit of the aforementioned sweating and teeth gritting…my thoughts are circling around two of my older posts… Pain Like Sheets of Rain, and Why Go Forward. Both were birthed from my own arduous walk from the depths of despair and my choice to move onward toward better days.
If you haven’t read them, I hope you do. I hope they inspire you forward…toward the Savior who gave up everything for you and would do it again…just for you. I hope it moves you to reach…just one more time…for healing, for peace, for the ability to trust and walk in all the incredible good that Jesus died for you to have.
I hope they bring you a sense of peace and strength this Christmas that, perhaps, you didn’t expect to find.
As always, God bless and thanks for reading!
