God vs. Satan

The last few weeks have really opened my eyes to so many moments that have caught me off guard. I’ve had events filling me with tears and full of defeat. There have been other moments that had me strong and ready to follow Christ in His plan. One day, I’m feeling full of the Holy…

Order.

I sit here and think about this last month as I reflect from my monthly refinement… This month went by so quickly. I’ve been in the lowest of the low mentally this month. I’ve gone through some serious homesickness. I’ve missed my friends so badly. I’ve missed my old house more than ever. Not the…
