Welcome to my blog, “Wall Postings for the Soul”!
I hope that you will find these thoughts and musings about our journey through life that I will be adding to these pages as helpful as I did while discovering, processing and studying them for myself.
As I’m sure many of you have, I too have discovered along life’s pathway that life in this world can bring us many joys and pleasures that can have us riding high sometimes for years, but invariably it can also bring us pretty low with burdensome challenges, difficulties, and much grief. Perhaps you might be there even now. And then there are those times where life seems to even out and settle down into an OK state for us.
It’s easy to thrive during those high times, and even be somewhat content during our OK times, but things can get pretty tricky during those low times, can’t they?! It’s during those times I found myself looking for answers. For tips and insights from others that could encourage and feed my lagging spirit. Words that would remind me that 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. Unable to function and take care of myself or my children and husband.
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.
Thus the reason for Wall Postings for the Soul. I know He can do the same for you.
