It’s All About Growth

There were times in my life when I was ok with, even accepting of, the idea of God. I admitted to having faith, felt comfortable in churches, even enjoyed learning about the Bible. But I’ve also had points in my life when the word “god” made me bristle with antagonism.

I’ve experienced some wicked ups and downs with God. The craziest part of it all? He’s never left me. He has remained. The one constant thing in my life is and has always been God — I just didn’t always know it, and when I did, I didn’t want to admit it.

Rollercoaster Ride

Because of my spiritual battle, I took myself to some dark places. And stayed there for too long. The thing I’ve realized is that I’m not the only one who has experienced a rollercoaster of a ride when it comes to God. I know there are many who have walked gnarly paths in this life — dark, treacherous, beautiful, exciting, dull, awkward — but where does it take us? For me, the path led me through some serious growth and back into His loving arms and I hope I never decide to leave again.

All our spiritual journeys will continue for our lifetime. Sometimes we are “really feeling it”, other times He feels silent and far away. I’ve found, when I share where I am, I feel less alone and get some great perspective from some wonderful women, and even sometimes men. In this section, you’ll hear about my journey, the good, the bad, but all for His glory!
