"Once we clearly acknowledge the soul, we can learn to hear it's cries. - Dallas Willard, Renovation Of The Heart."

It takes courage to pursue our dreams. It takes time and patience to unearth buried treasure. But I believe with all my heart that we must do both.



day 11

in 2007 God began to take me on a journey into my heart.  i wasn't ready till then.  ready to face some hard things about my past, about myself.  He gave me a picture (in my mind) of a cauldron filled with stinky, putrid water.  it began to swirl and the impurities began rising to the surface. unless they rise we cannot see them.  if we can't see them we can't name them and begin the process of healing.  i am still on that journey...and though it is hard at times, i can truly say, it is a splendid adventure.

He also gave me a scripture that i cling to.  "God rewrote the text of my life when i opened the book of my heart to His eyes." (Psalm 18: 24) msg

Praise be to God He is faithful and does what He says!

Grace and peace to you my friends.

So true!

I know for me I've just been through the worst three years of my life, but God has truly used it to help me overcome some things and to bless me. So hard, but He is so good.
