Sometimes life is not as we expect. Sometimes Christianity does not go as planned. Sometimes things are harder than we were told.
I have come to realize that true Christianity is a lot harder and a lot more nitty gritty than I had always thought. At the same time, it is far more simple than I ever realized. It goes deeper than a lot of people admit and it is a lot more straight forward than a lot of people want.
Following Christ is truly a paradox and it’s one that I do not have figured out. The past couple of years have been rough but I am thankful for what God has taught me.
In case you missed my latest blog series, here is a recap. My story is far from over, and I pray that I will continue to rely on God’s grace to get me through.
