Fill me up, Lord

"You will seek me, & find me when you seek me w/ all your heart," God says. But that is not the whole story. I'm not just a searcher. I'm also a hider. You too. We have to come face-to-face w/ our tendency to hide, to get lost. ~John Ortberg, Love Beyond Reason

Necessary Endings & What would love say?

I was listening to an interview with one of my favorite authors, Dr. Henry Cloud. His book "Boundaries" was a life-changer for me.

I have a funny story about a "Necessary Ending" with my small group Bible study. It was clear that we needed to end. I even called a "funeral" for our group at Panera. I literally called it a small group funeral. As a result, the group decided not to die but to go on life support for another 6 mos. YEEESH! At least I tried.

I need and desire a "necessary ending" with my relationships. My old habits do not bring me the results I desire. I need to revolutionize and prune this people, things, and habits that just don't do it.

What would love say?
