Sometimes this faith journey goes pretty smoothly and it is easy to express your trust and dependence on God.
At other times it feels lonely, frightening and sad. I have been navigating the latter reality of late.
I give grace and it is not returned. Every street feels like it is one-way. Dear friends are deeply wounded by people who claim to be following Jesus. I agonize over how these believers can wound so deeply and still say they know Christ? Marriage vows are abandoned at the altar of self. Illness ravages families and friends. I question my ability to have any impact for Christ as I stumble clumsily through my own journey.
