My friend and I stood in each other's weddings. She is the kind of friend who does what she says she will do. This became very evident to me during the months of wedding planning. I trust her. When she got married, I returned the favor. Our relationship with God is not like that. God keeps His promises regardless of what I do.
Because my husband told me I needed to rest more, I have been wrestling with what this looks like in my relationship with God. I was reading Exodus 14:14-15 in my Bible app and found that resting in God doesn't always mean sitting still.
From my experiences, I can say my life may not have turned out the way I expected it to, but it has proved to be much more than I had ever imagined. This is because my life is not about me; it's about a bigger picture –– inspiring others to find life through Christ.
Dating can be fun in the beginning of a new relationship, but sometimes we get into a cycle of looking for someone better. "The grass is always greener on the other side," or so it's said.

I have a hard time talking about sin. When I hear the word "sin," I only think of how irrelevant the word is to our culture today; however, God says that sin is relevant. Sin is not just an action, but also a lifestyle. It is a lifestyle that is not working.
