Yesterday evening I was driving my daughter to her youth group meeting, and I opened up to her about how I’ve been feeling a bit down, uninterested, and even sometimes irritable. It’s discouraging for me to be struggling with this after having experienced so many of God’s victories in my life. But I guess if… Read More Day 249- Thankful that God’s not done with me

From the beginning I tried to tough it out or to use other methods of… Read More Day 63 – Thankful for medicines and pain relief ointments
