Monday Morning Motivation from "Fearless" by Max Lucado

"Truth is, life often hands us a concoction entirely  different from the one we requested" Max Lucado No truer words have ever been spoken.  I think everyone hits this point at some time in their lives. Disappointment, disease, death (my older brother just died), fear,……divorce.   That being said, don't forget our hope and our one constant.  God.  He will never leave us or forsake us.  He is there in all the good times and in the hardest moments.   "I am leaving you with a gift-peace of mind and heart.   And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give.   So don't be troubled or afraid." John 14:27 Happy Monday Everyone!

Monday Morning Motivation. Jonah/Forgiveness

This past weekend was Thanksgiving.  I had a wonderful time with family and friends.  They say that holidays are the most difficult time for people going through death or divorce.  I would agree.
On Sunday I did not go to church.  I slept in and then had a lazy day.  I did listen to a podcast from a local church, CrossPointe.  The message was on the book of Jonah from a series called "Can't see the Forest for the Trees".
How I applied it to my life...
In the early days of my transition, from my life as I knew, it I was bewildered, I felt completely lost in my new reality.  I cried, I prayed, and was slowly sucked into deep depression.  I wanted to give up, I had no idea what to do.  I began to dwell on escape.  How can I end this?  How can I escape these painful emotions.  I was giving up on God and on myself.  I wanted to run away like Jonah did.  I regret that now.  I ask for forgiveness that discretion.  But that does not change my story.  It happened.

Even if we are…
