‘For consider Him who endured such hostility from sinners against Himself, so that you won’t grow weary and lose heart.
Therefore strengthen your tired hands and weakened knees, and make straight paths for your feet, so that what is lame may not be dislocated but healed instead.’ Hebrews 12:3, 12, 13

I’m always getting reminded, BelovedOne, this trailing Jesus gig is not always the cakewalk I imagined I was signing up for at the ripe age of eleven. Years have taught me that it has seasons of messy, tangled-up, confusing missions.
Don’t get me wrong – my faith doesn’t get shaken; it’s just that there’s a whole lot of fine print in the deal. Sometimes, I get surprised at what I signed up for.
I have found grace and mercy in places I never expected. And, judgement and harshness where I expected to find grace an mercy.
Believers find disappointment and and hard times, yet they keep believing because they know Father God is good and He loves them in spite of what seems to be the opposite.
Sometimes, I feel like a know a lot about God’s Word, and still act like a complete blockhead.
He leads, I dawdle.
He drags, I get stuck in the fence.
He shows things from His view, and they suddenly become much clearer.
Stay the course with me DearOne, no matter the surprises.

I hold a M.Ed with emphasis on Adult Training and Education. I’d love to get my Doctorate in Educational Leadership . . . someday.
