In the last two days the Lord has been exposing and healing a few of my deepest fears. I expect people to accept the message of the Word. I expect people to applaud me for being a minister of the Gospel. I expect to fit in here. I expect this to be my home...and I've been deeply troubled by the fact that my deep beliefs, convictions about, and love for Christ and His Word might result in me being a condemned outsider.
But this is not our home.
Thank you John Piper for these healing and prophetic words. Thank you Holy Spirit for continuing to solidify and confirm what you have been working into my heart and mind for several months. Thank you for constantly helping me grow in clarity, confidence, conviction and most of all love for You and love for others.
