Welcome to Nine Days of Survival!
I recently had the privilege of being featured on the Surviving Sarah podcast (if you’ve never listened to her podcast you totally should- I know you will love it! Click here for my episode). The theme of her podcast is surviving well in this life. I like that – I think we can all help each other survive a little easier when we hear and share our stories.
One question Sarah asked me during the interview was how I survived those four months carrying both Evie and Charlie when I knew they were going to die. The truth is, I could have talked forever about how God sustained me with the truths He spoke to my heart but in my nervousness or what have you, I could only think of one thing. And afterward I felt slightly disappointed and like I was not giving God glory for all He had really done for me and cheating the listeners out of some real, true tips for surviving in a spiritual tundra.
In an effort to redeem those things, my heart is moved to write this little series: Nine Days of Survival. I’ll share the verses, thoughts, and prayers that were life to me through those hard months anticipating Evie’s death, and then anticipating Charlie’s death a few years later.
My prayer is that in this series you will find some ammunition to store in your arsenal for those seasons of life when every day is an exhausting mental battle. I pray that you will come away from these nine days stronger and feel more equipped to endure an environment hostile to peace, love, and joy. I pray at the end of it all you will feel confident that you can survive anything that comes your way because, even in life’s deserts, God’s truth is an oasis waiting to quench your thirst and refresh your weary soul.
Thanks for joining me friend. Let’s do this survival thing together.
