Pray for Nashville!

Y’all please pray for Nashville! They were hit by a tornado late last night/early this morning. Nashville is my second home! I lived there from 2002 to 2008.

The damage is devastating. I have so many friends who still live in the area and thanks to the Facebook “Mark Yourself Safe’ feature, I was able to see that they are all okay! 

So far I read that 22 people have died. Such a sad, tragic day. I can only imagine the horror of waking up in terror at the large freight train sound of the tornado and having to find shelter quick. 

I’ve never experienced a tornado. They scare me so much. 

Continue to pray for the city and for the people who have lost loved ones and have lost their homes. 


Seeking God

And you will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart.

Jeremiah 29:13

It’s been a rough several weeks for me. I had to make a tough decision about whether to remain at Prevail Church or not. It definitely wasn’t a decision that I made lightly.

It hurts. I love those people with all my heart and have no ill will towards any of the members.

But I was uncomfortable with the direction the church was being led. And so I decided it was time to leave.

Yesterday I attended a church called Mission Church (formerly Virginia Beach Free Will Baptist) It was an amazing service. I felt so welcome. I actually graduated from the same college the pastor attended. I was about 3 years ahead of him.

He had so many great points. I wrote down quite a few notes including this one:

Your trials and hardships serve a greater purpose than you may realize.

Throughout everything going on the past several weeks, this quote made me realize that God is definitely at work in all of this.

I’m doing a soul search and realizing just how good God is! Not that I didn’t already know that….I just realize that yes, I’m going to have trials, yes I’m going to have hardships as a Christian but I am continuing to seek after God. I’m not letting these trials lead me in the wrong direction.

Seek after God, y’all. It’s worth it! I promise you won’t regret it!
