i remember it well, the phone call and words passed from him to him to her to me.

that was the message i heard.

unworthy.

that was how i felt.

lies filled my mind as i held letters and sentiments that had previously said otherwise.

press on dear friend. press on.



For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.
Jeremiah 29:11-13
