Do you know Arrested Development’s song “Tennessee”? Part of the lyrics go: “Lord, I’ve really been real stressed, down and out, losing ground,” and “Take me to another place, take me to another land. Make me forget all that hurts me, let me understand your plan.” If you’ve been watching the past few VLOGs, you know those particular parts of the song, and more, ring so true for me (I know the song’s message extends beyond my circumstance). But get this! We happened to get to go on another trip…to Tennessee, with my husband for a work project; right in the midst of the same season. Ironic huh? Watch this episode of Zara & Family VLOG to see all about it.
Ever get caught up caring for the needs of others before you’re even out of your own pit? After weeks of personal grief, I started to feel a little better.

You ever lose more than one person at the same time, and feel stuck in a pit? My emotions went through the ringer with the car accident at the top of the New Year, a birthday celebration for my son and the death of his grandfather the same day–after already trying to cope with the loss of my close aunt not long before. Then, jetting from ATL, on the fly, for the funerals in north Jersey. Whew. Made me remember that no two people grieve the same; and it hit me worse than I expected. However, it came time to leave NJ and meet the needs of my immediate family in ATL. It’s so crazy how you can look totally opposite of how your heart feels inside. See what I mean when you watch this episode of Zara & Family VLOG.
We started out the New Year with a car crashing into ours! Now, it’s not drivable (so frustrating). Still, we must press on with His peace. Right? Watch what I mean in this episode of Zara & Family VLOG.

Remember that “Spillin’ the Tea On Me” installment I did entitled Friendship Struggles? Well, I never got to update you on some of the ridiculous feedback I got.

There won’t ever be a time it’s not necessary to present diligent pleas to God—therefore, we must never grow weary in having to do so. We may get tired of facing affliction and storms, but we must never get tired of praying through them. Find out why when you watch this episode of Zara Talks.
Can I just tell you? I swore up and down (just the north Jerz in me, using my normal figure of speech to show how certain I was), that I was writing one novel. All the way up until the middle of 2017. I would look at my outline for It Came 2 Pass and feel like I had a mountain to climb—that I’d never be able to.
Gone are the days when I was a younger single woman, and had energy to type into the wee hours, thousands of words. I’m actually tired by the time sunset hits. So, even though I’m not naturally an “early bird,” this flesh will have to get beat into submission in order to get it done before sunrise.
“Enough already!” Oh my goodness…that’s what I’m telling myself.
Did you know there’s a common root of our gripes with, and murmurings against, God? And that root is a specific sin too. In the book of Job, it may seem like his fear [Job 3:25-26] was the issue. However, we find out later, that very specific sin was what Job had to repent of, not fear. Find out what it is when you watch this episode of Zara Talks.
The fight with unbelief usually springs from a pride within our own heart, so we must be adamant about asking God to search our heart, constantly. Otherwise we end up masking the real issue; pride. For many Christians, they pretend their zeal for God is driving them, when they’re really only after something they envy or covet (rooted in pride). That pride keeps us from relying on God’s understanding, which then prevents us from growing in faith. So, we succumb to unbelief. WATCH now, to learn more.
Here’s an update on my 30-day absence.
