Welcome to my Blog, “Wall Postings for the Soul”
My hope is that you’ll find these thoughts and musings I’ve shared about life as helpful as I did while discovering and processing them for myself.
As I’m sure many of you have, I too have discovered along life’s journey that this world can bring us many joys and pleasures that can have us riding high at times for years, but then invariably it can also bring us down pretty low too, with burdensome challenges, difficulties, and much grief. Perhaps you might be at one of those low points even now.
It’s easy to thrive during those high times, isn’t it? And we can even be somewhat content during those OK times. But things can sure get pretty tricky during those low times! can’t they? It’s during those times I find myself looking for answers, and for tips and insights from others that can encourage and feed my lagging spirit… words that can remind me I’m not alone and that I can overcome my current situation and be the victor. Can you relate?
The best help I’ve ever come across in every situation is the insights and encouragement I’ve gained through my Christian faith and walk with Christ. So I welcome you to come with me as I continue to explore and share what God might be trying to tell us about how to best live, conquer, and grow from those wonderful highs and inevitable lows points of life… and those OK times in between.
Remember: low times can happen to anyone!
At one time, even though I was what you would call a strong believer and a leader in my church, I suddenly found I had fallen into a deep dark pit of despair; every area of my being was impacted, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Yes, literally. I developed a new understanding of the term, “basket case,” for that’s exactly how I felt for I was unable to function enough to and take care of myself, let alone my children and husband.
So I’ve been there, in the lowest of low times, struggling almost minute by minute to get through the day. In deep depression. Week after week, month after month.
But I’m happy to report that I discovered even in my darkest days, God was still there. Even though my faith was rocked to the core… God was still there with all His mercy and TLC. And bit by bit He helped me overcome. And I know He can do the same for you.
Thus the reason for Wall Postings for the Soul. Even if it seems no one can help you find the answer to what plagues you, I’m thankful we can point you to the one who will have the answer.
So hang in there if you’re down. Come discover the hope that God can give you. See you online!
