Understanding the Bible can be challenging at best and discouraging at the worst.

If you feel that way - or know someone that may feel that way - this post is for you!
My husband and I know several people going through marriage wars, right now. It may sound like a new reality show. It's not.

We know that whom Christ left us was the Holy Spirit (John 14:16-17).

It's as if God wants me to depend on him right now. I mean, it's as if He wants me to stop and depend on Him, trust in Him, right now – before the tears, before the next procedure, before arriving at the hospital, before the anesthesia, before the removal, before the results are relayed to me. And of course He does. His Word tells us that over and over. It's hard to remember, though, when the storm is raging, though. Isn't it?
I don't want to write about this. I'll be honest. I keep stopping my fingers from typing because, quite frankly, this sucks. I promised God, though, and you that I would be transparent because this world is full of people that don't know what the face of true Christianity is and this world is full of Christians that think every other Christian's life is hunkydory.
