Refining Truth

 

fire-heart-21

Good morning !

I hope that this Monday, filled with bright sunshine and slightly crisp air, finds you well.

This is a very brief excerpt. I will tell you how grateful to God I am for putting me here. For loving me and choosing me.

I just love the photo that I have used with this post.  I love the refiner’s fire probably as much as I hate it. I will share about that more in Friday’s post.  Right now, today, God has me just a little quiet. Reflecting on all that has transpired over the last few weeks and days.  I have been asking for more of Him.  I am believing that these days of war that I have been feeling within my spirit, have been part of His answer.

I am going to be honest with you, I am coming out of something.  Maybe a refining fire, not quite sure yet. It is just a little too soon to tell.  I am grateful to be here and grateful that God continues to do His good work in me.

I could conjure up a bunch of really convincing Christianeese statements that would lead you to believe that I have it all together and that I have finished struggling with the parts of my past that have taken me out for so long. That however would be a lie and I am pretty sure I could not stand behind that.

Don’t get me wrong I am much more comfortable in circles where you don’t know how I used to be. You don’t have a reference point to compare my freaking out with any historical events.

This weekend my husband’s son is getting married. He has not been invited into many day to day experiences that his son has had. He did get to go to his high school graduation and he has been invited to the wedding.

I have been circling the drain, spiraling out of control. Every possible scenario that my insecure whiny self could imagine going through my brain most waking moments. But we are here and so is God. Here to comfort me and tell me the Truth.

Good truth and bad truth. Life changing truth.

I am going to end this with the verses that speak about the fire I suspect I have been in.

He will sit like a refiner of silver, burning away the dross.{emphasis mine} He will purify the Levites, refining them like gold and silver, so that they may once again offer acceptable sacrifices to the Lord.  Malachi 3:3

Please come back on Friday so I can share with you how God has shown up to escort me through these ancient ruins in my life once again.

Share His Peace
