She still shuddered in disbelief mixed with sorrow at the memories of the
beginning of the end as she read through some of her old blogs.
Thanks for joining us for the final Wednesday’s Word for this year with
Kim-Evinda and Trench Classes United. Our hope is that her blog will
help shed some light on whatever is going on or will go on that threatens
to send you to a dark place as we begin a New Year.
Her own words took her back to this time when they were still together,
and they were reading the Bible together. She would read the devotional
and she would read the scriptures. This particular Advent devotion was
about the word love…such a deep subject but it began correctly: love is
not “dutiful,” but voluntary, and God, who sent His Son voluntarily to
save each one of us was the ultimate example of love.
The verses continued to confirm what she already knew, and yet, there’s
no such thing as being able to grasp and hold this kind of love for it is
uncontainable. She remembered shedding tears as she realized that
every verse they had read together just reinforced and continued to
illuminate a new level of love of God, from God and about God.
She remembered the revelation she experienced in that moment: that
the kind of love that God wanted her to express to her covenant partner
was the kind that could only come from God, an unconditional love that
forgave and moved forward.
She shook her head back to the present, another revelation igniting
spars in the dark crevices of her hurting soul: she had passed the test
and though she didn’t get what she thought she was going to, a healed
marriage, no one could ever take those three years of unconditional
loving away from her.
Yes, greater is He that is in her than he that is in the world.
Friend, can I encourage you that when we partner with God, we will
never be alone, no matter what we go through.
