It Has Been A While

world religions

My faith has been strong, but my body has been weak and my soul has ached… for far too long.

I don’t feel like going into any details at the moment, but I’m grateful to say that my writer’s strike (or muse-less existence) is prayerfully coming to a close.

You see, I read a testimonial on Medium.com this morning of a young man who had a bad “religious” experience in his teen years and has used that to justify his lack of faith… and my heart ached.

As a result of reading his story, I felt compelled to sign up on Medium.com, become a member, join the writers guild and draft my first post there. (That’s more inspiration than I have in quite a while, it was a spark of life that I’ve been missing)

The topic is one that I think many of my existing readers will relate too and hopefully enjoy. At the very least, it shares more of my story.

Thanks for any feedback and my continued prayers that you all are well.

About NIKAOS, JOR & LMP

Life is hard, and change is inevitable. Sometimes it is welcomed, and other times it is overwhelming. As a child abuse survivor who has struggled with mental illness such as anxiety, PTSD, ADD, OCD, addictions and mountains of self-worth issues, I now find myself resilient, empowered and filled with gratitude most days. But that doesn't come easy or natural. It takes intentionality. It takes faith. It takes patient endurance. It takes incredible amounts of self-awareness, honesty, humility, and courage to make choices that are the polar opposite of how you feel. It takes vision and determination, hope and healing. I'm glad you stopped by my blog, I hope you found something of use as I transparently share my journey with others, the highs and the lows, the wisdom and the blunders, in the hopes that my mess becomes a message of hope, encouragement, and strength for even one person. .
