I’m horribly flawed.
I’ve sinned in ways and areas that would rock even the strongest men of God’s foundations.
I went through a living emotional and mental hell and managed to grab hold of the rock on the side of the swamp and pull myself out of the sinful sludge pit because there were people praying that I had not seen or spoken to, or for that matter thought about, for years. Praying for me to repent, praying for me to come back home.
I’ve said it before in blogs, but now I say it again….I make NO apologies for who I have been in my past. Key word there is PAST, it all lies behind me.
I didn’t jump out of that pit, I CRAWLED OUT! Changes came slowly, not in the blink of an eye. Old habits die hard and some still are with me.
But I am me, real, honest, screwed up, and at times very easily hurt, ME.
I refer all who cannot stomach that to a previous blog, Who Is Willing To Ride The Bus.
If you aren’t willing to ride the bus, then get OFF the bus because you are taking up a seat that someone willing to ride might want. And I learned yesterday that I have a lot of people that are willing to get on the bus and ride it with me because they love me, in fact they all boarded the bus and sat down with me yesterday, and cried with me, and held my hand, and prayed with me.
In closing I refer to my favorite quote:
