Happy Monday y’all –
You know,sometimes God allows a shock to our system to wake us up in an area. I have clearly had 2 such shocks in the last few months. I am so thankful. I think this is part of the Grace He so lavishly bestows upon us.
I do not walk this walk seamlessly. I have fallen back into some things that were to my detriment in years past. I can squint back & see that during those instances I was in a tough, rough & ugly place. A place that I didn’t like sitting in. I wanted to wriggle & wiggle & free myself, albeit temporary, from the pain I was feeling. And I tried to do it alone. First mistake. That led to more.
We all have a spiraling point. A spinning-out-of-control if this or that looms its head. Again. It’s in those places I believe we need God the most. Where we need to partake in the free gifts given to us to navigate such things. To muddle our way though. Not around or over. Through them. Its the only way to get freedom. When we attempt to side-step, to numb, to cover – it’s only ever temporary. It. Just. Doesn’t. Work.
We need Jesus. We need His companionship. We need the comfort of His love. We need the quiet place that can only be found in stealing away with Him. Nestled down into our souls. In place of the artificial fixes. That do not bring life.
We need the Real McCoy. Period.
Much love & finding our way home y’all ~ please join me.
