Here it is, a bit of real life, Ron and Joni style. We hope all is well with each one who follows us in this process of grace God is leading us to experience as an intimate part of our lives. As sometimes can happen, life places speed bumps in the fast lane of our lives! And Joni and I have nailed or been nailed by, some of those speed bumps lately!
Real life difficulties are mostly continuing health issues that we face for the long term. Sometimes this means real life issues can get in the way, pain, fatigue, and what we like to call stuff! However, what we continue to learn is stuff can’t stop Grace! Pain is no match for God’s passionate love, and fatigue stands no chance when exposed to God’s intimate love, all of which He pours over us every moment of every day.
We still have feelings that often derail our emotions, sending us into cave days! It’s just a part of real life. However, God knows how to find us in the caves! (Think of Elijah and his overwhelming fatigue when he ran from Jezebel). And when that happens our Creator calls us away to rest, to regenerate, to renew, and to come away with Him.
That’s not an invitation to turn down, ever!
As always, we hope what is shared here makes a positive difference in your life, your walk with God, and the security that is ours, given to us by God through His Love and Grace.
Although we realize there is really no such thing as normal, things will settle back to a more reasonable routine again as we are able to return to a more nearly normal lifestyle! In the meantime, we appreciate your prayers as we bump down the road of real life.
