Visibility Issues

“For you are the fountain of life, the light by which we see.”‭‭Psalms‬ ‭36:9‬ ‭ It’s a wild one. The snow is not falling – it is being driven.

The Ultimate Avenger

“For he who avenges murder cares for the helpless. He does not ignore the cries of those who suffer.”‭‭Psalms‬ ‭9:12‬ ‭ This verse hit me like a ton of bricks today. Ouch.

In Blows the Blizzard

““He directs the snow to fall on the earth and tells the rain to pour down.”‭‭Job‬ ‭37:6‬ ‭ I’ve double checked and triple checked the forecast. It still says snow. And lots of it.

I tried to continueContinue reading “Biking Blind”

So vulnerable.’ I AmContinue reading “Fear Factor”

I Can’t!!

“When doubts filled my mind, your comfort gave me renewed hope and cheer.”‭‭Psalms‬ ‭94:19‬ ‭ “I just can’t do it!” Brent was facing me across a chasm. He had stepped over it easily. I, however? The depth of the crevice was casting shadows that distracted my peripheral vision. Those shadows were very, very convincing. IContinue reading “I Can’t!!”
