Has hardship ever struck your house?
“The Long and Winding Road” was a popular hit song years ago. I loved the haunting melody, but as a disciple in Jesus, I was sure that my path would be smooth and easy.
Was I ever wrong! My life has not circled a cul-de-sac, but it seems to have steered off the primary highway and onto a trail leading to who knows where.
It was a road I was unfamiliar with and one that I was not expecting. Twelve or more years were filled with winding roads and an unfair share of trauma along the way.
My heart became dead. Well, at least part of it.
As a result, I decided to make lemonade out of lemons as I went on an intentional journey to discover what it would take to revive my own heart and soul.
I did not pick this subject. I would never have picked it. If it had been up to me, I would have run a hundred miles in the opposite direction.
But in the providence of God, I think this topic has chosen me.
