Picture a dark, damp, tower of an old castle. At the bottom in the fetal position is a woman and a hurricane is beating against the ruins. Gray and grim the wind swirling around her so that she cannot even get up. Crying out without words to express her need. Dying from what is imprisoned inside of her. If you took her from the tower she would not be free. Freedom comes from within.
That woman is how I would describe myself at this time in my life. I can’t even tell which direction the wind is blowing. My heart is overwhelmed with need. This morning I heard, and I’m paraphrasing, “Opposition is opportunity.” That touched me deeply. Somewhere in the heart-i-cane is an opportunity. So I have decided to take a break from blogging for a while. I will journal as I go, because you can’t keep a real writer from writing. I also have books to review.
I need more healing. For Jesus to touch my eyes again so that I may see the opportunity that this Sabbath will allow. Can I ask you to pray for me?
Writing this book has been so taxing on me. It’s sensitive nature is astoundingly and abundantly clear. But, my story matters so I am giving all my energy to the book.
Remember that no matter how hard the wind blows, and who or what it sucks from your life, there will always be a Rock to catch you when you fall. Your grip on Him may be slipping, but His hands never let go. Therefore our hope endures.
I will return in God’s timing.
Thank you for understanding.
