My heart each week is to share with you the testimony of one living out the hard and imperfect road of walking in love and experiencing the Father's faithfullness. Through all the seasons of my life and all the relationships there have been hard struggles, times of walking in the dark and unbearable and hurtful separations...one of the promises I hold onto and return to is found in 1 Peter 5. I want to let the truth of this passage be for you today what you can cling to, cling to the promise that our Father God, himself will and is in process of perfecting, establishing, strengthening and settling you. When you find walking in the darkness as the light and sharing in the hurts, the pain, and the struggle of others has in some small way become yours too, He will be there with you. There is no way to walk into the places where others have experienced and been touched by evil and not wrestle through seasons of hurt and suffering. There is, however, no safer, better place to be than in the Father's love. He is making a way for all men to hear, to see, to respond to His love and asks us to willingly go into the darkness assured that He will settle, secure, affirm and confirm us every time, in every season, through every struggle within and without.
