I didn’t want to accept that the life I thought I was going to have in 2020 was no longer in my reach. I didn’t want to face the music that this is life as I know it right now. Whether that life came with happy, sad, angry, or anxious emotions I had to learn how to hold all of them with compassion and patience not only for myself but for those around me.

This world is chaos whether it be on a global, personal, relational or whatever level. When I sought out peace in Christ, when I brought all my worries, my fears, and concerns to Him in pray or in conversation that is when I found peace.

Retrospective storytelling gives us a chance to make-sense of the stories that are being told to us and they give us time to reflect on how they affect our relationships..

That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.

The funny thing about time is that you can do everything in your power to change and grow but at the end of the day you can’t control all the factors. This is heartache.
