I thought that one day I would arrive and see a sign saying, “Welcome to Contentment: You’re satisfied here! ” Well that was not the case… I never arrived to the magical land of contentment, but rather I found contentment to be tied to my focus.
“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?

“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.

It wasn’t like God said leave your family and move to Egypt or some other concrete place near the Mediterranean. No, God said leave all that you are familiar with to go to a place that I will eventually show you. If I was Abraham, I don’t know if I would have been able to leave everything and follow- but that is exactly what Abraham did.
