Pin It Now! Last night was a good night in our small group. As we begin, the box of Kleenex in thrown in the center of our circle of chairs for those expected sobbers...I wasn't one of those! Later the box gets passed around for those late-blooming sobbers...UH UH...Not me!!
As the circle begins, the questions to answer were "Where have you been?" and "Where are you going?" Yep...and the tears begin to flow. Who'd have thought such A-typical questions wouldn open up the floodgates like that. Soon enough it was my turn and BAM! Couldn't even get a word out and I needed the darn Kleenex!!
It felt great to talk and download, cry and hear others share their hearts. I definitely won't even try to explain what my answers were to those questions...It is all a blur to me in some ways...But this is what I came away with from that meeting...
No Matter Where I Am...What matters is Where I AM, WHEREVER I AM!
Some deep thinking right thee, huh?!?!
...as i am sitting here, thinking, I wish that I had the power to change the minds of those that I love. I wish that I could stop the hands of time and shock the hearts of those that have flattlined. I only wish that every moment spent in prayer and discipleship would not simply be heard and then forgotten, but actually absorbed and used to develop the life of an individual. I wish that every person who turns away from a life of destruction and hurt, would never, ever return to such a life....I wish! I also wish that I could playback my own life and display to those who simply think that I just don't understand, and show them how deeply I do understand. I wish I could open up my chest and display the love, the devotion, and the hurt....showing to those who may doubt that it is REAL LOVE....REAL DEVOTION...AND REAL HURT. I know that I am certainly not without fault or sin....and am only anything because of the grace of God and the forgiveness of Him. Lastly, I don't wish to change the past but simply wish to use it to help change the future.......I wish....
