I should change my facebook post : "A little discouraging, but the Lord's grace is more than sufficient for us: we are feeling it and are seeing it in ways that we never would if it were not for this rugged road we travel..." to "This muddy road we travel".
We certainly are traveling a rugged and muddy road. But we are learning how to rest in the Lord in the midst of life and death situations- and hopefully we, like the Lotus flower will gracefully and naturally to push through the muddy waters, on toward the light (Jesus) and blossom.
Which is what we asked for. To be changed.
Sometimes it takes muddy waters.
