Real Talk Tuesday {Breaking Shame}

Sitting in the Pain

broken pieces mdavidsonIt’s been a while I know.  Let’s just say I’m working through some things.  Perhaps I will write about them later, for now, I’m writing a valley of compost.  Some of it will be seen. Some of it will be heard.  Some of it will be tucked away in the folds of my heart, for my soul alone.  Today, I want to give you a brief update on how my one word is going.

Like tree planted by the water are we—to grow up before Him—not crooked or twisted. We are to be straightened with arms outstretched ever reaching to God; yet something horribly bad can happen when our eyes are averted from the Lord. We begin the “navel-gazing,” and our roots become dislodged from God—they turn in on us; and they begin to strangle us, twisting and contorting.
