Thank you for visiting my contemplations branch here at Room Full of Ideas. Even if we do not share beliefs, I hope you can benefit from these posts.
Logic does not always make spiritual or emotional sense, but God leads me to understanding — or at least comfort — in the seeming chaos. Mix that in with my interest in wordsmithing and a desire to share what I am learning, and here we are.
I began posting in early 2013. If you would permit, some back story:
As a young child continuing into my teens, my health was rather glitchy, but I was functional. In August 2011, my health very suddenly (in hindsight, not so suddenly) crashed. I developed several severe neurological symptoms, including elevated continuous migraine (looking forward to the moment that disappears!).
It was a surreal *that happens to other people, not to me* night and following days, weeks, and months. Seemingly random symptoms kept hitting me. In August 2012, a year later to the day, I was diagnosed with Lyme disease. This diagnosis unveiled several others. As of the beginning of 2018, though we still have a ways to go, we have also, by God’s grace, seen much progress in my conditions.
The entire process of dealing with chronic illness can be exhausting. However, God is merciful and shows me a myriad of opportunities “to know the love of Christ, which passes knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fullness of God” (Eph. 3:19 KJV).
So, that is one context of where I came from. My posts provide a glimpse of where I am and where, I pray, “I therefore so run, not uncertainly” the “race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the Author and Finisher of our faith” (1 Cor. 9:26, Heb. 12:1-2 KJV).
Please keep in mind that my own conceptual understanding, as well as writing quality, are works in progress. Also, I am no expert in these topics.
May your day be brighter and your dreams sweeter! God bless,

Note: I alternate between the King James Version (KJV), the New King James Version (NKJV), and the New International Version (NIV) of the Bible. Sometimes it is cognitively easier for me to read one over the others (nothing “shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord” Rom. 8:39 KJV).
