I remember back to middle school, and I was beginning a new school right smack dab in the middle of the year. As I walked in I could feel stares from others as I walked through the halls to the main office. I wasn’t sure what people were thinking, but their expression didn’t speak of anything good.
Has there ever been a season in your life that you wondered why you’re here? What is it exactly that God would have you do with your life? Each day brings a new challenge filled with frustration and you just can’t catch a break? I’m raising both hands here.
Here we are at the beginning of a new year, and for many of you I’m sure there’s a long list of things that you want to accomplish. New years goals are a great way to start of the new year, however sometime they can have you feeling defeated before you even get started.
There are days I feel like I need a do-over, even though that’s not possible. Rushing out of the house, dropping the kids off at school, running errands throughout the day, back through the pick up lines, homework, dinner, baths, and bed.

I wrote this blog post as a guest blogger for Lydia at believingtruthblog.com. I am honored to have the chance to write and share this post with all of you.
As a mother, wife, daughter, sister, believer of Jesus, and friend to many, I have to say that my life wasn’t always such a beautiful picture. Before I knew who Jesus was, my life was filled with disobeying, mistrust, dishonesty, partying, and truly a sinful lifestyle. I was brought up in church, however, my personal relationship with Jesus blossomed at a later age.
Today brings the end of another election year and I can honestly say that for me it has been a little less than pleasurable. I enjoy electing another leader for our country, however with all of the name calling and speculations, its been harder to remain focused on the end result.
Have you ever really struggled to trust and believe that God is who he says he is? I know I’ve been in that place several times and in the midst, found myself wondering how I got there.
Have you ever felt like God was silent and didn’t hear anything you were praying about? Your prayers seem like an eternity for him to answer and things just aren’t working out? What about those times that you really needed him and felt he wasn’t near?
