What started to be a “want to hang out” turned into a full blown crush, which turned into spending quite a bit of time together. Yes, I’m totally still in the honeymoon stage, but my fingers are numb and my heart is happy. Granted, I really only know a few chords and am not really even sure how to “strum” properly, but that’s okay.
I find myself in a stage where I’m learning and re-learning so many things that this fits right into the mix. I must go through the pain, develop those callouses and take time in order to learn the chords, which will turn into a song. The song may not sound pretty at first, but with some hard work, pressing into those strings, and commitment, I know that I can be more than a conqueror and make something beautiful from the pain.
The same is true for the place I find myself in life. I find myself at a crossroads where I can either press in and dig deep with God or I can be complacent while letting root issues stick around. To be honest, I’m sick and tired and absolutely hate those roots in my life and the destruction and pain they have caused. I need and want to go through the pain with Jesus at my side to dig out any and everything that is destructive so that I can bear good fruit and so prove to be His disciple. In this, I need support, I need prayer, I need people because Christ created us as a body with Him as the head. Thus, I need Him and I need the rest of the body to help me in this. I recognize this and ask if you would join me in this journey in whatever way. A journey where I am committed to this path toward forgiveness, healing, restoration, and new life because I know that in the long run it will all be worth it.
