Every spiritual advance leads to greater opposition. Overcome one challenge and another emerges like a weed. It is so easy to become obsessed with self-improvement until I'm lost in a maze of mirrors (self-centered and out of touch) where it is difficult to connect (everyone else is consumed in their own struggle to emerge).
But you, Lord, are patient. You wait. You watch. You empower. And I know you are standing in your lighthouse looking out over the dark ocean. You are leaning over the rail watching for me and waiting with blankets and warm food.
