About Me

Hello, my name is Ona, and I am unique and crazy person stuck in a stressed out brain.  I have a loving family, and a twin sister.  My twin and I started working in the church when we turned 18. Wow, I can't even believe that. I started out as a Sunday School teacher and assisted my sister as the youth leader.  We had been serving so long, but that is when it happened. I broke...

Many people believe that if you know God and walk away you can't come back or that it is harder to come back, others believe that if you walk away from God then you never really knew him. I'm here to say, rules don’t mean anything. God still loves you (and me)...

See one day I lost everything. I still remember that day like it was yesterday. I went from a home to homeless in the matter of a weekend. In addition after spending my entire life being independent and not needing people I was experiencing a need for people, community I didn't want it, and I was upset about it. (Call me strong, but really I don't want you to know how weak I am). I became so angry at God that I didn't really want anything to do with him, and then my church had revival....

My journey starts during revival and wow, not the kind of revival I expected but the kind of revival I needed. See during the revival I finally expressed my weakness and anger at those who I allowed to use and abuse me. I finally let things out I had been holding in. My poor pastor, see he got to hear it and got to see me at a time when I couldn't even admit to being a christian let alone live a lifestyle pleasing to God. I was so angry and upset. The one thing that always settled my soul, praise music, just made me feel worse.

I finally started making progress, but once again I fell into the trap of neglecting my self, both spiritually and emotionally. I broke again I decided it was time for a break. Yeah right. I go to a small church, and while I have given up some of my duties, I have never fully walked away, it was just to hard. My year up and of course I jumped in with both feet. Planning events and outreach galore.
My break really didn't do much to help me put effort into my relationship with God, so I started a scripture journal and a Lent reading plan through you version.  It did not go the best, I put other things first and got distracted, but Praise God I can start each day new. I hope that you will join me as I continue my journey toward understanding Grace and how much God loves me (and you), one lesson at a time.

**I started blogging under the name Anna Grace, because I was scared of the voice that God has given me. I also  scared of how people would react. Well no more will I allow fear to guide my decisions. I am also slowly working on my faith, and trusting God who gives us much better then the rock we ask for. **
