Far as the curse is found

Old lies. Old voices. Wounds that fester. Dragons.

The meanders of some question marks do not lead to light & higher ground, but an abyss and unholy valleys.

Don’t start going there.

Saved from destruction, only by grace.

When It’s Hard to Believe in Miracles This Christmas

*

When vanishing acts have happened 3 times over – 3 solid, strikingly similar data points – the great temptation is to draw a line. Literally and figuratively.

Who’s to say if the line is a mark of true wisdom, or half-blinded defence? Who can tell if the line is a boundary, or in fact a direction?

Some question marks too easily become hooks.

Fragile.

Saved from destruction, only by grace.

Grace means… just walk on. Just take the next step. Even if I don’t feel like it. Even if I think I don’t know how. Even if it feels like it’ll take the last bits of breath out of me.

Just show up for the next moment, next hour, next day.

His promise is that He will be there.

“I will give you grace to show up.”
