Active Rain Blog Post #800 – What Does This Mean?

spiritual enlightenment

During the 4th quarter of 2011, Cherise and I found ourselves going back to the dark places in our hearts.

This is not a misstep in our pursuit of the transformed life, nor did we undergo any type of spiritual crisis.  What happened is that our faith was tried and tested with many painful trials, including the death of her father, additional physical calamities, trying to get through many writing deadlines for my book and many more sudden changes, many too personal that do not need to be displayed publicly.

What did we learn from all of this?  Suffering, an enriched part of our growth in spiritual maturity and union with God, takes us directly back to the dark places without adequate warning.  And though confused at first when revisiting the painful parts of brokenness, it’s an opportunity to experience the light of God to shine even brighter than before.  This brought us great comfort along our journey.

I mention all of this because a few have asked about our irregular blogging on Active Rain lately.  We want you to know that we have never left.  We simply pondered through the noise of pain to hear the voice of God to lift us up and to set us in the larger places of life – the kind of places that offer freedom to live more fully and to connect with others more intimately.

Blog #800 represents a continued journey with you all to communicate objectively about the different facets of real estate and to share the aspects of truth without diluting the message of love.
