Wow!

My CRAZY life! It just get's more interesting. I've come further than I thought possible but at this point I realize why it's so painful to mature in Christ and count the cost. You must turn your back on those who would seek to drag you back into this worlds facade. Yes, in many cases, turning your eyes toward Christ means to turn your back on the "world" and those who would rather live bound to it's traps and habits. This is painful when those people are those you have known and loved for a very long time. Growing to spiritual maturity means facing some hard truths about who we are and what we must do to become who He wants us to be. It's not just loving others that He asks. He asks that we forsake ALL and follow after Him!

May God bless you as you follow His will and way in obedience to Him. This was encouraging. Yes, we will face suffering in this present world if we follow Christ. But it is worth it in the end.
