At the beginning of the year something major happened to me spiritually. I liken it to being a balloon, but instead of being full of air, I was full of pride and lets add ice water. When this bubble burst, I found myself sitting in a puddle of ice water and being very broken in deed. I know its a terrible metaphor but its the best I can do this early in the morning. Another way of looking at it is to say that once again, I have been through a phase of pruning.
I also completed the Ancient Paths course, and this was profound, and as deep roots of "stuff", were exposed, they too were removed. Its very painful to experience.
My thought for the day is to try put Christ first today. Not easy as my head is full of the demands of business and school term ending today. I hope to put one foot in front of me and follow the cross.
