So here it is Wednesday, either the infamous day of the week or the most famous day of the week, it’s your choice! Or is it? Do we really have any thing to say regarding any day of the week? Or is it more about attitude when it comes to everything in our lives? I’m trying to return to “Business”, the one that God has placed in my lap. Unfortunately, life has a way of getting in the way of living! Doesn’t make much sense does it?
And the point is, there are times when life does not make sense!
I am not one who has experienced Depression in its more debilitating forms! What has passed for depression in my life was mostly melancholy, the blues, feelings of disconnection, and a sense of never belonging. You have heard me explain it as being on the “outside looking in”. This changed about 2 weeks ago when a depression overwhelmed me in a way I hadn’t felt in years. Therefore, my self-imposed break as I needed to face some new issues and some ancient ones.
I have sought to be as honest, open, vulnerable, transparent, real, willing to be authentic about Gods Grace! So I’m trying to come back, tomorrow will be the second week from my “emotional crash”. It will also be one of the hardest days I have faced in many years. I would appreciate your prayers as always, but especially between the hours of 1:00 and 3:00 tomorrow afternoon.
Your prayers made the difference in my recent “Cage Battle” with the illness, I thank you all so very much. The last month has been difficult as life often can be, it has also been another revelation of Gods Gracious love. So we will continue our journey together in the adventure we know as Grace in Process!
“This is what the Lord, the God of Israel, says to you, Baruch: ‘I am overwhelmed with trouble! Haven’t I had enough pain already? And now the Lord has added more! I am weary of my own sighing and can find no rest.'” Jeremiah 45:3 New Living Translation

“God always ignores the present perfection for the ultimate perfection. He is not concerned about making you blessed and happy just now; He is working out His ultimate perfection all the time—‘that they may be one even as We are.'” Oswald Chambers, My Utmost for His Highest, April 27
Well Gracers, here it is Monday evening and I’m bringing an update I hope will be encouraging. Lets begin with his bit of news: Next Monday (May 11, 2015) Grace in Process Blog will come back on line with original content on Monday, Wednesday, and Fridays.
From the beginning this group has been about encouraging all in their growth within God’s Grace Process! It has been my desire to experience the insights of others as they, too, experience the Amazing Grace that defines God as He relates to us His children.
What I have discovered again in the last several weeks is the truth that God never leaves or forsakes us no matter what we are struggling against! In many ways, the greater the struggle, the mightier the revelation of God’s Grace, therefore God challenges us to see Him in everything. This is one lesson I am still endeavoring to incorporate into my “Life’s Reality”!
This group exists to encourage you to share the realities of God’s Grace as it works in our lives. I have been blessed to be in this process as an opportunity to know the depths God will go to reveal His Love and Grace!
I am profoundly blessed by the prayers and kind words you have sent my way. Together we will be influencers on a world dying to know the God who chose death over living without them! Thank you for “Having my Back”!
