Recently, I've had to confront the idea of death. Not that death is merely an idea, but for me it kind of was. I've been fortunate enough to never have someone I knew unexpectedly pass away until a couple of weeks ago. When I heard the news, I was immediately shocked and heartbroken.
In the first few years after God saved me I saw sin as this unfortunate parasite that was slowly sucking the life out of me. But I imagined that through enough hours of prayer, fasting and quiet time with the Lord I could successfully rid myself of these pesky leeches.
As a woman who has suffered years of abuse there have been times in my new life when I have found myself living out Psalm 6:6. "I am weary with my moaning; every night I flood my bed with tears; I drench my couch with my weeping." I would weep before the Lord from the deepest parts of me and feel as if I had no response.
I’ve always been a very passionate person. Adventure is my favorite thing. Adventure where? Anywhere. I’ll do it. I’ll go there. I love to discover and push limits. When someone even implies I can’t do something, I prove them wrong. I’ve never been satisfied with simply existing.
