Praying woman

I was sitting in the pews, feeling alone, yet surrounded by several hundred people. My life, up until that moment, was filled with pain and disappointment. I tried to do everything in my own strength, but found myself broken a little more each day.

Worse Before Better



Have you ever noticed that sometimes things get worse before they get better? In this podcast I talk about how sometimes things worse before they get better, but going through the hard stuff is worth it! To deal with the stuff we sometimes sweep under the rug and confront uncomfortable issues so that we can be free to be all that He’s called us to be.

Hebrews 12:1- Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.
