There are days when things just don’t make any sense.  In fact every day seems to become enveloped with a thick fog that could eventually consume us and leave us hopeless.  We look for answers, we strive for contentment, we ask for peace but there isn’t any.  Another act of senseless violence – a loss of someone dear to us – the fear of losing a job – an act of terrorism – political folly – all of this can leave us in a murkiness that won’t clear up.

We may even ask where is God in any of this?  Our faith weakens.  Our hearts ache.  We feel helpless, depressed and alone.  At that low point, we think God has deserted us.  We fear that he doesn’t hear or listen to us.  We give up.

This is just the time that we need Him the most. He is the only One who can clear away the fog of life’s disappointments and hurts.  He will soothe our troubled hearts and give us hope once more, because He is the only consistent One who remains the same all the time.  We can count on Him.  He won’t let us down.

Put your trust in the eternal God, who created you – who loves you with unconditional love – who provides a way out for all your cares – who will never ever leave you

Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”

John 8:12


As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on
