‘That’s why I don’t think there’s any comparison between the present hard times and the coming good times. The created world itself can hardly wait for what’s coming next. Everything in creation is being more or less held back. God reins it in until both creation and all the creatures are ready and can be released at the same moment into the glorious times ahead. Meanwhile, the joyful anticipation deepens.’ (Romans‬ ‭8‬:‭18-21‬ MSG)

Hello, SurvivorOne.
Encountering God means we will have seasons … days unending … facing head-on, unexplainable mysteries of a human world filled with pain. I suppose it is by steering through life’s dangers that we learn to practice an awareness of the Creator’s attention to the details in our lives. I suppose, too, without the dangers we would never learn compassion.
Dale’s dad suffers from Alzheimer’s. The past 6 weeks have been brutal. We have friends dealing with broken hearts and the deepest of life’s heartbreaks and all reaches of despair of life’s mysteries. Everyone, it seems, is in battle.
In the end, this is the way of the cross, isn’t it? Our lives so parallel. Living our days out in a certain impenetrable mystery … lingering in suffering we cannot change … anticipating a resurrection we are not yet able to see. In the cross … we see a world of our own suffering as it is churning grief in God’s own heart. His response is bold, he yields a suffering love in return. Our journey through this experience brings me to feel the crush of the cross … it is to be shocked again and again by the depth and the mystery of God’s own wild compassion.

Wake up.
Embrace His mysteries.
Go.
