Does it feel like this is the end of everything true, good and beautiful? Some days, maybe, some days we go down the rabbit hole and it takes everything we have to come back up high enough to see the light, to know that there is an end in sight. When traveling down the hole, it is very scary, everyone has a different version, a different sight of what is down there. For me, it is an insight, a reflection of what is really going on. Not to long ago, I discovered that the things that bother us about other people, the things that make us angry, discontent, irritable, these things stem from what is going on inside us.

I am uncertain how important it is to actually stand up and fight these battles or to find peace in your heart regarding them. In most cases today, when I feel criticized physically, I just think, I am not my toenails, or the hair on my legs or whatever is being made fun of or criticized. It is much harder when it’s my choice of words, or the pronunciation of my words or if I choose to work on my passive aggressiveness or not that is being criticized. Even harder, is to walk on the eggshells that have been scattered all over the floor. “The hardest things in your life become the sweetest tools of grace in His wise and loving hands.” Paul David Tripp. There is growth in every criticism, every occasion, every moment. I know there is more to learn here in this situation, more to discover about myself. As for now, I see the light at the top of the rabbit hole. It is a beautiful light and it gives me hope.
