Hello old friends, new followers, and fellow bloggers- Today is a somber day for many, myself included, as we reflect on life in the aftermath of the passing of Kobe Bryant and his beautiful daughter, Gianna. The world is in this state of shock and silence. Loved ones are holding each other a little closer…
We can tell a person and say “I forgive you” as many times as we want to but it doesn’t mean a thing until we actually can say that person’s name, go around that person, receive a message from that person and not feel a way. About four weeks ago I went through a whole…
Y’all, I have no idea what this life of no shame will bring but I’m excited. I feel free, like in the depths of my soul. I feel like I can conquer the world. I feel strong and full of life in the inner chambers of my heart. I feel brave. It takes bravery to move into the unknown out of fear into love, out of being guarded to being open, out of holding things into being extremely honest. I am okay with where I am and that is freedom all in itself. I’ve embraced the truth about me and I am unashamed. I’ve embraced my triumphs and my failures, every ounce of my brokenness and the places where I am whole, all of my strengths and all of my weaknesses. I’m okay with every ounce of me and I am enough because I am in Him. I’m literally smiling as I type this article, overjoyed at the process He is doing in my heart. ©Simone Holloway, 2019
“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
“And just when, just when you feel like there is nothing left to give, that well springs up again spouting forth something new and something good.” ©Simone Holloway, 2018
I stand on love’s cliff and the wind beckons me to the sky.
Either I will sink or swim- but first I must fly!
Hello old friends, new followers and fellow bloggers- Have you ever heard the voice of God so clearly, it stopped you in your tracks? I mean one of those moments when God speaks so profoundly to your spirit, you don’t know whether to cry, dance, jump up and down- just shook? Well… friends, I had…
There is nothing worse, then feeling isolated, invisible and alone. Such a horrible concept to randomly think about, right? Kind of..but I believe that these thoughts are real. We live in a world where everyone is perceived to be happy, to be content.
As I sat in my seat, eyes adverted to the floor, the Lord asked me a question: “Which opinion is more important to you: mine or theirs?”
For it is my belief, that the day this sweet baby boy came to the world- the world was changed forever. Jesus came to change the world. He came to bring hope and to bring love to the outsiders. He came to bring joy to the depressed, to rescue those who were hanging on by a wing and a prayer. He came for broken people, for those that people gave up on, for those that were deemed to be unlovable.
