I've always had trouble with the idea of trusting in God. What does that mean? It's such a vague statement. And every time I think I'm trusting God, it seems I'm wrong. Lately, God has been hammering this home, showing me that I trust and hope in too many things that aren't him, namely myself and my … Continue reading When Breathing is an Act of Faith
Dear readers, you've been with me through the good days and bad. This day could be most aptly described as "FELRKLHGIOEH!!" That's the scientific term. First... It began with my brain doing its normal thing, which is hating my guts for no apparent reason. "You're kind of worthless, you know?
