What’s Left after a BBQ of My Life
For those of you who have been following my journey over the last six months you may know that I have been going through much change. I have been unemployed since January but God has been the author of my mess and I am okay with that. I have friends who have been in similar circumstances and have been brought down completely. Oddly, I have grown and been strengthened probably the most in my entire life.
About a year ago I knew spiritually I was starving and pretty close to spiritual death. I look back and say I was in an extended desert experience. From living it I can tell you buying desert property and living on it wothout a water source SUCKS! I started to pray that God would break in and renew my spiritual life. I prayed that he would do to me what he would but… please don’t take my job. That was probably not the best thing to do. Never limit God (lesson learned). Well I think he knew my identity was based on what I I did and was able to do. I walked away from my job just before Christmas. I was at a place where I was burnt out and needing a change. I figured I had a about two months before I would start to panic. About the time I was starting to panic a supernatural break through hit. With no income coming in and living on savings I was able to pay off my mortgage and figure away to continue without money coming in.
In January, God started working on me on my identity. I’m not going to go in depth about it, you can go back and read tye blog to see my journey.
So onto the BBQ of me.
My personal theology has been stripped! I told God to shake my foundation and take away anything that was not of Him.
1 He is God and I am not
2 He likes mankind and he really likes me
3 Salvation, Grace, Hope, Fullness are free gifts from God
4 I can do nothing on my own to attain acquire anything in #3
That is all for now
