I hate with a passion the events that changed the course of my life.
I despise the pain I have seen in friends and family–self included–as a result.
At times, the despair has been completely overwhelming.
My faith has wavered on the shakiest of shaky ground.
And yet, we still remain.
Sometimes on legs as weak as a new born calf.
Sometimes with strength that surprises me.
And sometimes, the standing is only because I am being propped up with the power of others. (Thank you, Becki and family for the strength you so willing lend)
I may not ever run. But I will limp just as hard and fast as I can in building a new life, a new faith, and a new (pardon the pun) walk with God.
Many of you–in your encouragement to write and press forward–are great supporters. Some of you are old friends, some of you are new friends, and some of you I may never meet in person. But I am thankful all the same.
I love writing and speaking. I am working hard at improving my craft and finding new opportunities. I will not wallow in self-pity or despair. It is a new day, and I intend to live it to the fullest.
I’m so thankful God allows anger, dissent and argument. He’s good like that..
Aren’t you glad he puts up with you too?
In the meantime, for those who are interested, I am posting the audio to my interview with Drew Marshall: Drew Marshall interview 4-6-13
Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
31 but those who hope in the Lord
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.
