Lord knows I didn't want to slow down, so sometimes the Lord let me get sick so my body slows down so my spirit will.
Birth control and the Church famously do not get along. Everyone knows this, even down to Google. But few people are willing to ask "why?"
I'm learning both in real life and my spiritual life that there's a certain power in asking questions...even if the question feels foolish.
We all need a savior, but few of us are willing to really admit our need for him.
I was reminded how my doubts, fears, insecurities, and misunderstandings of grace block my spirit from trusting in the abundance of good that God promises His children.
America, we knew we had issues. It's like the honeymoon period after Obama has come crashing down, and we're in the 7-year slump in our marriage to each other as a country. It's going to be hard. We're hurt, wounded, and very divided. But we need to listen to one another now.
God is so good!
