Reclaiming & Restoring My Life and My Home

8. Simply Southern Cottage (Author: Sara McDaniels) Can you pinpoint a precise moment that changed absolutely everything about your life?

In one short sentence, everything I knew to be true became false. My hopes, dreams and plans shattered. My future stolen and there was absolutely nothing I could do to change the circumstances. I begged God to give me back my life. I yelled at him when he didn’t. I spent hours on my face before him questioning his motives. I mean, he is all-knowing, all-powerful, yet he allowed this life-altering moment in time to proceed. I couldn’t wrap my head around it.
