Should I pretend or sugar coat places in this journey? How will that help you when you hit a dark place? Doesn’t my authenticity honor the journey of our Lord? How does our mom respond to fear, my girl’s will want to know?
When Faith gives extravagant love, but no light. When Faith gives resolve, but no courage. When Faith gives provision, but no peace. It’s okay to let Faith be what it’s gonna be. God takes it from where we are to where we need to be. . .
On Monday night it’s sleep lab time. I’ll be hooked up to every possible electrode to monitor brain/respiratory function to measure avaps machine function for where I am now. Tuesday brings the PEG (percutaneous endoscopic gastronomy) procedure. Five day hospitalization is for regulation of feeding through tube into stomach and further education with cough assist/suction machines/etc.
At this point, my Faith is the obedience to do it afraid. I almost selected a sweeter image for that quote. I heard God say, “You are hiding from honest vulnerability, if you lighten the journey.” God takes it from where we are to where we need to be. . .So I risk the heart honest vulnerability for the humble reapings.
This normalizes our humanity. It’s okay and God expects our flesh/human workings as we process through tough places. It’s an honor to be raw and real in our journey. If just one of you find a place for God in the midst of your fear. . God takes it from where we are to where we need to be. . .In the Ministry of One: Speaking faith-life to just one of you is the awesome Wonder of Kingdom Workings.
See “where” faith in fear takes us tomorrow. . .
