Thank you John for this powerful Bible Insight, with vivid illustrations to help us to relate. I can relate to all these situations you've described and just want to thank you for all your patience throughout these past 10 years, helping me to live more and more in the freedom of God. Each time I crashed, I felt a failure, as if I would never get there; it's a long journey but I'm definitely making progress and am eternally grateful.
Such strong and helpful words! As one who lived on the North Cornish coastline for 9 years I've seen that imagery for real and felt the power of the sea up close - and yet if you stand your ground when that destructive force reaches you all it does is melt away into nothing and it gently washes around your feet.
Thank you, Nicky and Mike for your comments. I was recently asked , 'How do I know the difference between emotions that I should be looking at and ones that I should leave the other side of that line?' That's a good question and I will soon be writing a response, so watch this space!
