Good morning, DearHeart.
When Liv is riding with me we look for animals. One farm has goats, and usually there is one that is in a crazy predicament. We are so much like them – just one decision away from a predicament. One decision away from crazy.
At the end of the day bad decisions aren’t just about you. Its about collateral damage. The more Satan can cause to fall, the harder he strategizes. Make no mistake, Satan is out to kill, steal, and destroy and take as many as he can down with him. That is what the enemy is so hellbent on doing to the family today – he is in to luring us in and getting you and me so caught up in the cycle of sin that before you even realize it, it has taken you under. And, if you are there, you will not be able to get out of it yourself. You will need a trusted Christian counselor or strong Christian friend to guide you through the process. And, here is the good news … your story brings you to a new place.
Twists and turns.
Each brings a unique story to your life, don’t they?
And, through each one, a mini-journey through uneasiness grows. The heart-trips are unplanned by us, yet somehow, in every new walk, the Holy Spirit brings to you and to me other hearts in flux who grow deeply connected.
To be this raw has purpose.
The Holy Spirit’s ways through the suffering are not always predictable. From this hole that suffering brings, an opening is made.
Suffering brings a certain death to a useless part of who you used to be. Through that death comes new life.
Such a place is nothing less than a birthing process. Death to the old holds sacred rites to pass on the new … so that, once again, we can offer what we can of ourselves to our human world … and, point them to the Light.
‘I will instruct you and show you the way to go; with My eye on you, I will give counsel.’ (Psalms 32:8 HCSB)
Eyes on Jesus.
Eyes on the light.
You can do this.
