Trusting in God
Is there a purpose to this pain? Such questions arise when life gets thrown off course. As we seek answers that may or may not come, we trust God.
Throughout the years, I’ve had to make some hard medical decisions—very few of which have left me feeling confident about the path ahead.
+ Am I making the right decision?

“I need you to make a way where I do not see one,” offered up to God less like a request and more like a demand—a desperate plea uttered from a place of feeling forgotten.
As the hours ticked by, a new ending began to unfold—one that left me with nothing else to say but only God.
