“Where do the by-laws of our religion condone the injustices of people? Where do its teachings condone the lack of empathy? Where is that written in our code of conduct aka the Bible? In the text, when are those callous sentiments expressed by our leader? The Son of God himself, Jesus the Christ? Where????”
“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.

“I looked her in the eye and said, “It’s not my job to parent someone’s dysfunction.” Whoo! That’s something, right there! Say it with me: IT IS NOT MY JOB TO BE THE CARETAKER OF SOMEONE ELSE’S DYSFUNCTION!!!!! ” ©Simone Holloway, 2019
“I bet the prince of Egypt never imagined living a life as a fugitive in Midian, but here he was reimagining all he dreamed. Yet, God being so gracious used curiosity to grab his attention for a meeting. God wanted to spend that time with him, the same way he desired to spend time with me.” ©Simone Holloway, 2019
For God will never give you the spirit of fear, but the Holy Spirit who gives you mighty power, love, and self-control. 2 Timothy 1:7 TPT
There’s no need to fear, for You are right here!
Hello old friends, new followers, and fellow bloggers- Good evening. Tonight’s post was hard to write, for it forced me to face another level of vulnerability within myself. Transparency makes me slightly uncomfortable but I’ve resolved that to live the life the Father has created for me, I must be transparent. I don’t know if…
Hello old friends, new followers and fellow bloggers- It’s been awhile, I’ve been hiding out for a little while. I was thinking about writing about what I was feeling but I realized it’s easier to stay on the shore, within a shallow zone and to not extend more information than what would be necessary. I…
