The flame of truth wanes while we’re groping in the dark, trying to feel and taste and smell the familiar that leads to a door of understanding. And just about the time we let go, sit down cross-legged on the cold floor, he illuminates the room with hope. The door revealing truth was in arms reach the whole time, the handle and hinges just didn’t feel the way we expected.

Settling into Sunday and thankful for the Light.

    Yes, so often it has been and is in arms reach. After all. I know that groping of which you speak. The handle, the knob, the Way was there all along. The Door, The Shepherd, The Bread…..thankfully, mercifully there. May I have eyes to see.

      Me too Elizabeth, its my constant prayer. To see what I am blind to in the every day.

      Aw, thanks Amy. That means a lot coming from you. Appreciate your encouragement. I’m a bit weary from it to be honest, but God is faithful to speak inspiration throughout.
