I’ve been on a journey for eight years now.

This journey has taken me along the rough terrain of a pathway marked by unexpected twists and turns.

I’ve scaled atop treacherous mountain peaks, and rested by the cool waters of meadow-filled valleys. I’ve survived torrential downpours from merciless storms, and witnessed the radiant rainbow painting His promise in the sky. There have been days I’ve crumbled under feelings of defeat until recalling each moment I’ve basked in victory’s triumph.

And in weariness I continue to place one foot in front of the other, plodding further along.

Because it isn’t alone that I travel.

It isn’t my strength carrying me along.

It’s His.

He is my greatest support, extending grace for every moment of every day of this journey.

For in my weakness,

He is strong.

“And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness…
                                                                       2 Corinthians 12:9a

I’d love for you to take a moment to read about my faith in the Christ Who sustains me throughout this journey of life.
