This morning I was reading back through my old stories about my little dog pinpin. I have a client who wanted to read the stories. When I read the little dog part 5, there was a line that says…….
I am just grieving too much to see it right now.
I remember thinking. I am missing his comfort, because I am grieving so much?”
Paul reminds us that we only see a poor reflection of ourselves when looking in a mirror
1 Corinthians 13:12
For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I have been fully known.
That is why many times we need to hear God’s Voice through community, (Acts 15:28) our friends and colleagues. They often know you better than you know yourself.
How does the saying go?
I can’t see the forest because of the trees or is it I can’t see the trees because of the forest? You get the point
I’m so stuck in my grief that everything that I see is through the lens of grief or the lens of pain, the lens of betrayal? What lens are you seeing life through right now?
I believe that your friends can often see through the fog that is created by your own preferences and desires.
For it has seemed good to the Holy Spirit and to us to lay on you no greater burden than these requirements:
Have you ever wanted something so bad that it has now become Who You Are? When does a deceived person know he’s deceived?
Here’s what I know, God speaks to us in a lot of different ways but we need to remember that God’s revelation is pure, we are not. If your drinking water through an extremely rusted pipe is the water pure? Or is it contaminated?
