More truth

After writing my watershed post, I'm realizing some things. Not everyone will celebrate you. Not everyone will give you praise. You will realize that when you get real, you will make people uncomfortable. We all long for comfort, comfort is a recipe for stagnation. Cerebral Palsy allows me no physical comfort, but it allowed me mental comfort.  I'm coming clean. Life is no picnic. I'm learning that to follow God's call, I'm having to be as uncomfortable as the mounting callouses on my feet. I used to say I didn't wish CP on anyone. Maybe I had it wrong. Anybody want to take a walk in my shoes?  Get ready for a wild ride. Change requires a total loss of what you want. The only One who can give me what I want is God.  And that can be painful. My friend Allen always told me, you don't know how beautiful you are.  I miss you friend for showing me who Christ was and forever will be. You loved people as Jesus would. Sometimes we love people based on what they provide us. I can give Jesus not a thing He doesn't already have, yet He loves me anyway.

  1. Very beautiful and heart tugging post Regine.
    You need not apologize nor justify why you love God.
    Just be you. I like you and I don't even know you personally but I like the person that I have met here on your blog~

    Hugs, Jan

  2. I say go for it. Your blog, your space, your thoughts, your feelings. One thing I've learned in ten years of blogging is that the bloggers who resonate most are those who are the most authentic. Who are really "who" they are. Be you. It's a pretty darned good thing to be.

  3. You and I may disagree sometimes on the finer points of politics, but who cares? You are still my sister in Christ and that makes you priceless no matter what standard the world judges by.

  4. No one can rob you of what you know in your heart to be true.
