I know it has been forever since I posted on my blog . . . in fact, if we depended on my blog to feed our family, we would have all starved long ago. So many things have been happening . . . some good and some not so good. I have been all over the place on the emotional yo-yo. I have allowed circumstances steal my peace . . . I want to be so grounded in my Christian walk that I my peace is not affected by the happenings of my life. But, I hate to admit, dear friends, I have a long way to go. But this journey, hard though it has been, has shown me that peace has nothing to do with our circumstances.
|I tried so hard to "choose not to be negative" . . .|
So there you have it. We can be wallowers or followers. While wallowing is tempting and in our self serving society, very acceptable, it leads to destruction. It feeds the sins of selfishness, arrogance and pride. I am nothing but through Christ I have everything. I am crucified in Christ therefore I no longer live. Jesus Christ now lives through me.
I apologize if I have been a bit too heavy today . . . but I have been going through the fire and I am just now catching a glimpse of why . . . at the purification and cleansing the fire can bring . . . and the peace that comes by not only allowing, but fully accepting the "burn."
