Running From Fear

I pressed my lips hard against the whistle, but no one responded. Just around the corner of the building I could see my car, but I didn't have my keys. The dark figure was close behind me. I could hear his footsteps as they fell one after the other against the cold pavement. I didn't…

A New Light

It’s been a trying few days. Hence why I haven’t been posting as much lately. I’ve made a very important decision. From now on, it’s going to be posts about anything I want. For some reason, I’ve felt the need to constantly give, give, give! While giving is good, I’ve found it’s important to remember…

The Mistakes We Make

It goes without saying that we all make mistakes. From an early age, we learn that mistakes cannot be avoided. If you’re human, you’re going to make them. That’s just the cold, hard truth. Not one person you encounter is perfect and everyone you meet will have their own set of mess-ups that may compare…

Social Anxiety

It’s been awhile since I’ve felt the tinge of it. That strange creeping feeling that sneaks upon you like a thief in the night. It came out of nowhere one day while walking through the store. I wasn’t thinking about anything in particular. Suddenly my anxiety flared up. It was like a quick strike of…

Difficulties

I think there’s a lot of negativity thrown towards being content. Whoever said it was a bad thing, obviously didn’t experience it the right way. It did take me quite awhile to fully accept what being content really means. Just because we don’t like something, doesn’t mean we have to be tortured by it. We…

It’s not every day that we come across unique individuals who spark creativity in our hearts. They come into our lives and we look at them while our thoughts spiral. We think Wow! I’ve never met someone like this. Never in a million years did I think someone like this would show up in my…

Fear

There’s something especially special about fear. It ravages our insides, making us feel vulnerable and scared. It takes apart the pieces of courage we thought we had and if we’re not careful, it can win. It’s up to us to make sure that, that doesn’t happen, but sometimes we can’t help it. It’s not always…

Betrayal

Betrayal. It's a word we've all heard before. We know what it means and how it feels. So, why do we do it? Why do we let it happen to us? We give our trust to those we think deserve it, only to have that same trust broken and beaten. Trust can't be torn. It…

Losing Someone You Love

Pastor Dave Online

It's hard to push forward when someone you love dies. It can be almost impossible just to take another step in your day. The weight of it all comes crashing down on your head and heart. So, why even push on? Why should we continue forward after those we loved are gone? Is there really…

Quiet and Sensitive Souls

Recently I've had to deal with a lot. Anger, frustration, sadness, and, as always, depression. A friend of mine recently went through something very rough. She became overwhelmed by the things that were happening in her life. We talked, laughed, had a great time and finally it clicked within her mind. She finally saw that…
