I am not feeling so extraordinary today. Today I feel worn out, battle weary, pressed down with sadness. I feel like a failure.
A young friend has told me that her husband is moving out. He's unhappy and she doesn't want to stand in the way of his happiness. Really!?! They are struggling under lies from the enemy and don't see it. Being apart is not the answer! I see how much they love each other.
Oh my God! Do something! Don't just stand afar on Your holy mountain and let Satan take this relationship! Come on!!
There are no words. I sit here and stare at my computer screen willing something to come to my mind but all I hear is "what's the point?" "what's the point?"
My eyes burn from the tears I have shed for them, for me, for all those I love who are struggling against the forces of this world.
God is my refuge and strength. I run to Him when I don't know what else to do. Jill Briscoe calls it 'the deep place where no one goes'. Visits to the deep place are vital when you spend so much time in 'the shallow places where everyone is'.
Today I am totally ordinary.
