Is God Testing Us?

“For so long I’ve believed that my life was a series of tests, administered by a stern Higher Power, measuring my value and worth in the world. Every life challenge was a reminder that I still hadn’t proved my worth. I still wasn’t enough, which became a thumping pulse underneath everything I believed about myself and the world around me. It affected every aspect of my life.”

On her blog, After the Closet, Casey O’Leary shares a story about how she embraced a more loving, kind, and gentle God.

Read her post, “Testing, Testing.”
