In the Land of the Living

My devotions took me to Psalm 27 today… A Psalm that David wrote… Now he definately had some big issues he dealt with throughout his life… His family considered him unworthy (not even thought of to be the next King of Israel by his family… Samuel had to ask if there was anyone else) and …

A New Moment to

The Borderline Personality Disorder in me loves to keep “safe” in the negative thinking… The old idea of not risking something might happen… Better to expect that it won’t or otherwise I’ll be (yet again) disappointed… Which my BPD already “knew”… It’s easy to stay with what I already know… I’ve lived most of my …
