Wow! Who knew it would take almost 8 months for me to be able to respond to my Rejected post.
God had a lot to teach me in the past months and I still have a lot to learn and unlearn. Did you catch that? For those of us who have lived some years, there is a lot that we have been taught and/or learned the hard way. Most of it is good and helpful but a lot is not, hence the unlearning.
I am discovering that a lot of my lack of desire to write, is my desire to not rock the boat. God has asked me to write about my experience with some hard issues; things that are hard in the non-Christian world but even harder in the churched world. In the coming months, if I am obedient, I am going to have to deal with push back from people I love and respect as well as strangers. BUT, in keeping with the name of this blog I am turning to this:
God is worth pursuing, and when you believe in His Son, Jesus, you are chosen by Him and precious to him. Later in 1 Peter it says this:
I have been chosen, as has anyone who has accepted Jesus Christ as LORD, to declare the praises of what Christ has done for me. But, I will also say that the fight against you to proclaim those freedoms in Christ, will be fierce.
I need to step out in obedience and be strong in the LORD, not in my own abilities, and continue to proclaim His excellencies because He has called me out of darkness into His marvelous light.
How is He calling you out of darkness into His light, and how are you proclaiming that goodness?
