Newest Feature: Slay The Demons, Longing for Sovereignty
I wanted to give you a little excerpt of the Short Feature I wrote Slay the Demons, Longing For Sovereignty. Please don’t let the title fool you or scare you away. This is my vulnerable and could-be-deemed-gut-wrenching experience. I want to encourage you not to ever ever give up on what God has called you to. Keep standing and hold on to His promises.
Excerpt: Sit Down and Bleed. . .
I never thought the heartache would end after Zach died last year. Even now I admit that I can only sit with the memories of those chaotic days for a few moments. I left him four days before he passed and it almost killed me to say goodbye.
Write Jenene. Sit down and bleed it out. Do your part to change the landscape of culture.
I cursed that day. I had to leave Zach alone to get back to try and help the homeless. To my very spiritual core I wanted to slay those addiction demons for my brother. I wanted to bring him back from the dead so he could live his life again. I literally tried to convince myself that if my faith were stronger, I could raise Zach from the dead two weeks after he passed away. I know. I’m a little crazy. At 46, I lived long enough to not give a crap about what’s insignificant. It’s my journey and I’m livin’ it.
It’s raw, vulnerable and good. Truth is, as traumatized as I was watching him suffer, I couldn’t get rid of his demons. I was just too close. Seven years ago they spoke to me when he was tied down to the hospital bed. Told me they were going to kill me. Not the first time I’ve heard that. I’m still here.
