Steadfast Love

“I thought I trusted God.  I did.  I thought I understood His love for me, this notion that because He loves me He wouldn’t leave me without.  Yet, my heart became increasingly full of fear and anxiety wrapped me in a bear hug as to say “Welcome Home!” Even in the midst of my perceived weakness, He never changed.  He loved me with a steadfast love.” ©Simone Holloway, 2018

Confessions of a Law Student…

“Like, many of you may read this and be like,” Wow sis, you’re super dramatic!”  But if some of you lived a day in my colleagues’ lives, you would lose it.  I mean you would probably think you’re borderline insane.  Studies show that law students/lawyers experience 30% more depression than the average citizen, 45% more anxiety,  and 40% more issues with substance abuse.”©Simone Holloway, 2018

Safe Spaces

“Let’s be real, those who are super loving are usually the ones that have experienced the most pain.  Those who are super accepting of others are typically the ones who’ve been rejected by many.  Those who are the “strong” one in their relationships are typically built that way because of traumatic events surrounding their weaknesses.  I have been all of these things…rejected, in pain and have experienced trauma. Overall, my soul sought safety.”©Simone Holloway, 2018

Goodbye.

“There’s no way that I have an idol in my life.  No way.  I mean, I love God, right?  Yes, we love God but there are things in our lives that we love more.  That, ladies and gents is idolatry, the loving of something/someone more than the Father. “©Simone Holloway, 2018

Memories

“I still cannot forget about you. /Trust me, I tried. /I stood in the mirror and lied, /said that I didn’t love you anymore. “©Simone Holloway, 2018
