The Struggle is Real

January 8, 2016

Well, it’s been a long time since this blog was active. And it’s been a long time since I’ve had a close relationship with God. Over the past two years or so, my family and I have struggled mightily with finances, children, and our own fears and demons.

While my wife has remained steadfast in the face of all of this, I have fallen by the wayside. I’ve become more bitter, angry, and irritable, and my depression has overtaken me. Our marriage has taken a hit, and my only child left to live with her mother. I’ve lost my way, and it is in no way anyone’s fault but my own.

Since I have lost my job, I have decided to spend more time in bible study and I would like to revive this blog, and the associated Facebook page as well. I’m hoping that I can return to that time when I was at peace, and, at least for the most part, a happier person. I want to repair my marriage, and my life. And I know that I need God to do that.

The world seems to be spinning out of control, and the last two years has seen a major increase in terrorism, mass shootings, and unspeakable acts of violence committed against our fellow man. Everywhere I look there is hatred, violence, and greed. Love thy neighbor is a foreign concept it seems, and everyone seems to be gearing up for the coming apocalypse.

I, on the other hand, just want to live my life. I don’t fear death, I only fear that I am not prepared for it. And that I won’t join God in heaven. I hope that by resuming my studies, and resuming my more peaceful and forgiving demeanor, I can turn that around.

With love, and the love of Christ,

Jay McAnally
