  1. Lindsey, what a beautiful reminder my heart needed this morning. Reflecting on some hard times in effort to move forward, your words remind me that He is with me always, and I am never alone.

    • I am so with you, Sara! Reflecting on hard times is not an easy thing to do but so necessary for our growth and healing, and YES, Jesus is always with us in the process. <3 Thanks for reading and commenting!!

  2. Thank you for this!! So needed – I’m in a transition time now where the past is behind me and I don’t know if there will be a resurrection or a whole new story. Jesus is the only constant and never leaves or forsakes us!

    • Thank you for reading, Agnes! I am saying a prayer for your transition this morning. Sometimes it helps me to remember that “resurrection” doesn’t always look like I think it will look. But you’re so right–Jesus is with you! Praying he gives you comfort, peace, and courage.

  3. Lindsey – thank you for this very timely post. I am 5 weeks post op from a spinal fusion and still struggling with a lot of pain and limited mobility. I am trying to focus on God and His plans but my brain keeps questioning Him and why I’m not further along in my healing. I know He knows best but I am so frustrated. I would appreciate prayer for patience and trust.

    Thank you – this is a wonderful community.

    • Lynne M, lifting you up in prayer. Lord please take Lynne in your arms and continue to heal her body. Make your presence known through your comfort, please ease her pain. You are a faithful God and I pray you will keep Lynne close in her spiritual walk with you. I ask these things in Jesus Name, Amen.

    • Hi Lynne! I am thanking Jesus that this post was so timely for you! I hadn’t even thought to expect that someone who just had spinal fusion might read.

      Lynne, that recovery is NO joke. It was much more difficult than I expected. My mobility was still pretty limited a few months out, and I’d say it took a full year before I felt 100% back to normal. But now it’s been 10 years and I am still pain and issue free!

      I am praying for you today and in the weeks to come. Please feel free to reach out if I can pray for anything specifically or if you’d like to talk more.
