I am thrilled and grateful to share my essay, “Following God, Even When it Hurts Like Hell,” over at SheLoves Magazine.
I followed where I believed God told me to go. As I went, I experienced interrogation, expulsion, harassment, loss, and war. I dug in, I sacrificed, I kept going back, I kept letting people into my heart, only to feel it break over and over again as I watched them get trampled on. I did what I felt called to do and chose to do. I did all the right things, and I ended up experiencing more pain and heartbreak than I ever thought possible.
The truth is always that God is good and worthy and enough. But the truth also remains that I followed where God led me, and it hurt me like hell.
