Yes, crises continues in our home: A boy locked inside his room. A boy choosing not to connect.
But what a big God we have. He is not asking me to do anything that He hasn’t done Himself. I am to love a boy who’s really not that lovable (you know what I mean right?). He is asking me to connect with someone who does not want to connect with me. He is asking me to love on a boy who tramples on my heart. Being ignored hurts deeply (at least in my case.)
To love when it’s thrown back in your face is painful, and yet, that is what God is calling me to. But only because He knows it can be done!
I am rising above myself. It is powerful. It is an honor. It is also painful. There is hardship: My body is full of stress. My nights lack peaceful sleep. And I depend on God, because I am selfish.
It is my opinion we are selfish. I think we tend to focus on the self: What can I get? How can I feel good? But we are called to rise above ourselves, which can only be done through God ~ the source.
We are called to something beautiful, painful, but beautiful !
I love that you are here and I would certainly love to hear from you. To leave a comment go HERE !
