Wow, I can’t believe it has been over three months since my last post. In February we moved to Oklahoma to begin working with The Grace Center as the Administrative Pastor. It has been a great new and fresh start for me. Unfortunately, my blog has suffered neglect in the midst of my transition.
But I am back. In the past three months, the Lord has really been gracious in helping me deal with a lot of my issues that I have been carrying that has kept me in a funk and a fog. Most of it had to do with the pain of loss.
A loss is such a terrible thing. Many people associate loss with someone dying. However, loss occurs with so many events that happen to us in life. My issues of loss mostly had to do with the loss of dreams and opportunities.
With the help of my new friend, Nate Blouse, I was able to pinpoint the root of some issues that I have been dealing with for several years now. It all had to do with loss and my grief over those losses.
I am looking forward to getting back into blogging and finally starting on my new book. I know that God still has great plans for my ministry and that brighter days are ahead.
I want to encourage you that if you have suffered a loss of any kind, especially if it is causing you great grief or depression, please get some help. Talk to someone. Learn to forgive and let others go. Forgiveness is not really for them. It’s really for you. Unforgiveness keeps us bound up and imprisons us to past events that we cannot change.
If you get a chance, check out Nate’s website at www.inthesafeplace.com. God has gifted him to help people become unstuck. I know that he helped me and I look forward to a brighter future.
