We’re enjoying the mature garden we’ve inherited with our home. It’s stunning to see all sorts of flowers, bushes and wildlife taking shelter in the various places that such a garden creates.
Are you hurting inside? Do you feel alone? Do you feel lonely, even if you’re surrounded by people? Have your emotions left you feeling tired and like you have nothing left to give? Have you lost your job? Or a friend? Or a precious member of your family? Are you left wondering where hope will come from? Do you feel different from everybody around you – like you’ve got struggles they wouldn’t, and couldn’t understand? From being a victim of childhood abuse to enduring unemployment as an adult, and the tragic death of a daughter, Andy B has lived through some pretty testing pain, but, always, God was there to walk alongside Him. And if God’s plans are for our good, how can we trust that God really loves us, when bad stuff happens around us and to us?
After seeing some beautiful images of Autumn, or Fall – depending on what part of the world you live in – Andy B got thinking about cycles of life. Because in life, just like those leaves, what can seem the end, can also just be the beginning of something else, and new.
