“The what-ifs are the worst and they come without permission. They come without warning. Like all terrible things with no mission but to distract, the what-ifs always come. They come and suck the life out of a person, leaving them drained of happiness, courage and grit. I was contending against the possibilities of things taking a turn for the worse. I was fighting against moments that did not happen, against that which was still unknown. “©Simone Holloway, 2020.

“One of my favorite passages of scripture is the shortest one in the book. John 11: 35 simply says, “Jesus wept.” I love this verse because it shows a savior in touch with the human condition: pain. He wept. He allowed himself to feel grief and at that moment, tears streamed down his face like a river. He’s the friend that will sit with you and cry.”©Simone Holloway, 2020.

“I have decided that I am in this thing with the Lord forever. I’ve come to the place where I love things and people but I don’t love anything or anymore than the Lord. I love God more than my career. I love God more than the boy who has my heart. I love God more than my friends. I love God more than my family. I love God more and at any moment if he asks me to sacrifice it all, I am willing to walk away from it all. I don’t worship people and things, for the Lord alone is worthy of all my love, trust, and worship. “©Simone Holloway, 2020.
“So I have a confession to make: when I sense that I am falling in love with someone or that someone is falling for me, I run.”
