It Shouldn't Look Like This

It Shouldn't Look Like This

This shouldn't be happening. That shouldn't have gone that way.

My life shouldn't look like this.

How many of you have had these thoughts? I know I have, and I've had them a lot in the past two years. Maybe that job fell through. Maybe that friendship turned sour. Maybe you're feeling the pressure of society to perform in a certain way. What do we do when we have these feelings? Maybe we turn to food. (I'm trying to change that--join me!) Maybe we turn to partying and drinking. But we usually end up turning to all the wrong things instead of turning to the One who could best help us navigate the it shouldn't be like this moments.

And that is why I'm doing Proverbs 31 Ministries' online Bible study It's Not Supposed To Be This Way. The study begins on Monday, January 21st, but I've already started reading the book, and I already know that God brought me to this study.

So, I'd like to encourage you to join me. Every week, I'm going to write about the book and what I've learned, and I'll offer up some questions--mainly from the book, but also ones I come across on my own. If you want to join in and get exclusive email reminders about the study and my favorite bits of wisdom, be sure to fill out the contact form and include your email.

If you've ever struggled with how to get past those it shouldn't be this way seasons, this study is definitely for you. I hope you'll join me!
