I’ve taken quite the hiatus, I realize. And I would apologize except I feel like there’s so much good stuff that is happening that y’all would yell at me for it, so I’m not going to.
I spent the weekend in San Diego with my small group and I really got to know them a lot better and just got to relax a little bit in the midst of Perspectives Intensive. We did a little hike at Torrey Pines and then went to several beaches. I got burnt to the crisp. But you know that’s what happens when white girls go to the beach.
Honestly I am learning a lot about God’s heart for the world, but I think, also importantly, I’m learning about God’s heart for me. I had never realized just how many strongholds the devil has in my life until being in a healthy community of women who are all just loving on me and pouring into me. Lies that I didn’t even know I was believing have been coming to the surface and I’ve had to seriously reevaluate who I believe that I am in Christ.
Final food for thought: where is the very fine line between self-deprecation and self-hatred?
