The Hard Way

...I have learned that to sin is to inflict pain on myself.  

...I have learned that to sin is to willingly taste death.  

...I have learned that godly guidance is hard to find… even among God’s people. 

...I have learned that I need to place everything in the context of glorifying God… because when I don’t then I run the risk of idolatry. 

...I have learned that God is faithful to save, that the Holy Spirit never abandons us, that the only choice that fills me with joy without fail is the choice to focus on God and His ways.  Logic, emotion, physical, spiritual all find their complete rest in God. 

This I have learned. This I now know.
