Last night was a fitful night.
The cares of life terrorized my mind and loss held hostage my heart.
Because it is not accurate.
Our individual lives.
The progression of events which bring people together.
For whatever purpose that might be served in both serving others and realizing our full potential.
Have you ever sat and determined to think?
We each have places in our lives where we place a stake, a marker where will not be denied or turned away.
We commit ourselves to something or someone and we will not, we cannot be distracted from it or them.
Nehemiah found the he could not walk away from rebuilding the walls of his beloved city.
Daniel could not deny his faith in his God in order to bow before a false God.
It would be a betrayal to their own heart.
Regardless of the cost, regardless of the right or wrong, or the reality of it all, as Jedediah Grant said, “To walk away from you now would be to betray my own heart.”
“If the worst that can be said of me, is that I loved too deeply, or that trusted too openly, then…yes, I do…and it was…and it remains…worth it.”
I wrote that in one of my journals on April 7th, 2014, at 2:37 p.m.
Maybe you have had similar feelings at times.
