“Babe, you’ve wrestled with God a number of times in your life…but you never ran away from Him.”
I looked up to see Barry smiling in my direction as he spoke. I was slightly downcast, feeling as though my blog has become an absolute beast. 🙂 I never really intended for this to be more than a hobby…something to catalog life in the ministry. The good times, bad moments and encounters with God. But, within the last two months things have escalated beyond what I could have ever expected or wanted. Don’t get me wrong…I understand that there are blogs out there that get hundreds of thousands of hits per day…I am BY NO MEANS in that category. And in the depths of my heart I hope that I never am.
So, I guess in a lot of ways I’m back in the wrestling ring. Asking God the tough questions, taking risks and seeking after truth. But, in all honesty I feel closer to God in the midst of this season than ever before. And when I get overwhelmed and feel like running…I make the choice to run to Him.
