Trusting God When it Doesn’t Make Sense

Why Do Bad Things Happen?

It's a flawed question. It's difficult to truly answer. We can't truly answer to everyone's satisfaction. We may have opinions about the answer but it's impossible for your opinion to agree with everyone else. We don't stop to ask if we are asking the right question. Maybe the question is based on flawed thinking. If… Continue reading Why Do Bad Things Happen?

Spending Your Time Wisely

SERENDIPETEA

So my sleep was interrupted this morning by my mom sending me messages on Whatsapp. .I woke up grudgingly and checked to see that she had sent an image of one of those motivational quotes. I struggled to open my eyes as I read the message.

I tried to go back to sleep but clearly MY MOM had other plans. My phone kept vibrating and I checked to see her message:  “I HOPE YOU ARE NOT STILL SLEEPING…WAKE UP!!!”

I responded letting her know that I was very much awake.

She then started to call for me to come downstairs.

I got out of my room and grumpily sat on the stairs and saw my mom walking around downstairs trying to get her day started.

“UGH MOM! Cant I sleep in??”
