Today, I'm continuing my reflections on "Uninvited" by Lysa TerKeurst. Chapter 7 is all about When Our Normal Gets Snatched. Wow, that is a loaded statement. I don't know about you, but I like the "known", the "predictable", the "comfortable", and the "normal".

When I felt the Lord nudging me to join this Write 31 Days Challenge, it seemed so crazy. I was just launching my first blog a few days before I was going to need to write and post EVERY SINGLE DAY for a MONTH!
Well, I did it! Here we are at Day 31! Actually, it was not me, it was God who did it through me. I have lived Philippians 4:13 (AMP) . . .

I was going through some pictures on my computer and came across this one.
