Where I was… At the time of this journal entry our life was unravelling. We sold our family home, in hopes of paying off all our business suppliers. We renovated and moved into a condo that we owned, only to have to sell that… Continue Reading “THE only reliable ROADMAP FOR LIFE…”

It was these constant voices that caused that tightness in my chest. These voices that worked so hard to keep my eyes focused on the impossibilities rather than the God abilities…
As I read from my prayer journal, almost three years to the day, I have so many memories flooding through my mind. I can read those Bible verses and be transported back to the constant fear that would wash over me…fear of the unknown…… Continue Reading “THY WILL NOT MY WILL…”
