The colors of autumn.
Orange, gold, brown...
The colors around me are turning . The atmosphere is charged with the energy of change. Winter lurks around the corner and with it the anticipation of earth's slumber. A much needed rest. I'm going to be gone for 20 days. I look forward to this time of fasting and praying. I look forward to the change that may come about for my obedience. An improvement in my soul's hearing. A 'slap upside the head' that says, "open your eyes and weep!" And then for my crying out in desperation, a change *here.
There are people who are so lost and in so much pain, it breaks my heart. So, for 20 days I will join with the '40 Days For Life' team of central Oregon. Many have been fasting for 20 days already. I was stubborn and knew that I was being called to fast from right here. I'm to give up blogging for the final 20 days so that I can focus on the cry of desperate people in the overwhelming place of making a choice. For the next 20 days I will simply put up a reminder of what I'm doing for those of you who would join me in offering a prayer each morning.
*This type of music is NOT my style. But the suffering in this message needs to not be dismissed based on artistic preference. It's beautiful. Please listen and weep. There are real people living in this real world with real problems that may or may not look just like us. EVERY person is loved by God. Every person aches and longs for love and answers. Pray with me. I'll see you in 20 days.
