Overcommitted

Several years ago I was anxiety-ridden to an extreme. I was at one point even medicated for my anxiousness, especially pertaining to situational OCD. I would literally fear things like health issues so frequently that I’d manifest symptoms, which worsened over time. I eventually got off medication once my mind could recognize and rationalize my…

The GOOD Fight

I’ve been helping my mother quite a bit lately. She’s recovering from a pretty extensive surgery in December. The world doesn’t just stop when one is forced to slow down and recover. I was reminded of this the past few days as I am battling the cold/flu that’s been so prevalent this year. Life must…

Speeding Through a Parking Lot

A lady sped up instead of letting me cross in a parking lot. I let this upset me, but why? Expectations of others to treat me like I would treat them. Why would I let someone else dim my light because they aren’t treating me as I would them? Check out my perspective on this new post: Speeding Through a Parking Lot

Mind Held Hostage

What an amazing day! I am always so pumped when November comes along, as I’m a sucker for the holiday season (LOVE IT)! Crazy to think Thanksgiving is already next week!

I also write this to those who have such internal pain that they continue hurting others (even if they don’t realize it). I write this especially for those…

Tony is a Chiropractor, yet not your traditional what I like to call “snap, crackle and pop” type. Tony has been referred to as anything from a “witch doctor” to a “spiritual guru.” Needless to…

My Antidotes for Fear

I’m over a month into my journey and I must admit that I feel more oppressed than normal. I believe the more of God’s work I’m trying to do via surrendering, the more attacks from the enemy will likely occur. We all have our weaknesses, some even bondages. In 2 Corinthians 12:9 Paul writes of…

A Whole Lot of Grey

Murph and I are settled into Indiana. If you’re visiting my site for the first time, just know that 100 days ago I started hitting my knees each day and surrendering my life to God. You can view the prayer from the home page. The beginning of writing this blog is one major result of…
