Roots on solid foundation...
Why do I fight the inevitable?
I didn't always plant my roots on a solid foundation... in fact, for the past 35 years, I've made my own way through a slippery slope of crazy. While at times it was very fun and seemed like a wonderful adventure... it also brought a lot of unnecessary heartache and distress. As I continue to move towards a path of forgiveness and Love, I find that's not always an easy road. In fact, most people ignore it, pretend it doesn't exist, booze it down, drown it away with busyness, etc. Yes, I did for so long. No more -- no pretending or running away from anything. I will choose to continue to face all the fears. With my roots planted firmly on solid ground, I can do anything with Him, who is in me.
When I struggle with choosing obedience (not having control, which I like) I am thankful I have wonderful women there to remind me that I don't have control anyway. Obedience is learning that Faith takes over and I don't need to be led by fear of the unknown. <3 It's not easy, but its a better life --- this I know --- this I am learning.
