This summer was hard. I found myself unable to write for my Restoration series throughout June, July, and mostly into August. I was unable to because I went through a season of not feeling restored. After my May post where I felt so free, so healed, and so… happy… it’s like I went into the complete opposite direction. The anniversary of my miscarriage came and went, and there were days that I felt like life was being squeezed right out of me. I became bitter and angry all over again, and my pursuit of restoration felt like a failure. I would be lying if I didn’t share this part of my restoration journey. It’s not always going to be perfect. There isn’t always a rainbow at the end of a storm. Sometimes it’s just a flood. Sometimes, I feel like I am barely keeping my head above water because I’m so anxious about everything.
