Wheels of life...

Have you ever felt that you've been stuck running on a hamster wheel?

Spinning your wheel, going around and around, with no end in sight and getting more and more exhausted?

Do you feel like you're Running In Circles?

"Much of the secret of life is learning to get off the hamster wheel of fruitless suffering while remaining on the Potter's wheel." John Ortberg

Kim Engelmann grew up in a highly dysfunctional home, she lived a tense and lonely life, enduring verbal and spiritual abuse from her mother while her father denied the existence of any problems. Her earnest prayers combined with efforts to be a better daughter brought no relief from the emotional and spiritual suffering. Later, the negative thought and behavior patterns were repeated in her marriage. She was stuck on a "hamster wheel" - running in endless circles that led nowhere.

Is there hope? Come back tomorrow...
