The waves of life are alive and well for everyone. We learn to stand strong but storms happen and at times no matter how well we thought we built our storm proof house, it can fall. The question is, do we will rebuild or leave?
Who will come, who will stay? There have been times when my heart left but my body remained. When I went to go look, I found her asleep. “Wake up sleepy heart, there are lots to do, we have to rebuild!”
I’ve witnessed many seduced by flashing lights and dangerous distractions, never to be seen again. A part of them wants to return but I can see they are afraid to come home, afraid of the broken house they may find.
The Prodigal son was smart enough to realized he needed to go back. Yes he made some big mistakes, hurt the people he loved most but better to live than to die.
I rejoice when I see those who once walked next to me in the journey still in love with their Creator. Its not as common as you think. I even have to be careful for my own love, there have been times when I had to remember my promise to stay and not leave.
To obey Him is more important than success its self.
“But you have learned from him to honor the will of God in everything God gives and in everything God takes away. You have to learn from him that a persons strength comes solely from being united with the will of God. ” – Bonhoffer.
