You see, the Lord has this way cool thing about working things out to the good for those who seek out His guidance, comfort, and participation. When Cleo and I were ridin high as I was at the peak of my career previously we had supposedly arrived..... we were multi-millionaires in cash. That was OK, but I learned so very clearly through the wreck and all my hope was built on cash in hand and bank rather than Christ and faith.
Sure, we did worship at the time, and did some way cool things with the cash according to the Lord's leadership. BUT, it was that supposed self reliance and the resulting FALL from the top which brought ME and my need for God's grace squarely into focus.
Imagine that.... seven and a half years later, and we are just barely beginning to come back from the brink after letting go of every last bit of the treasure so we could be totally reliant on God. Totally. This is how I know it will work out to the good.... it is because in coming through the eye of the needle with the Lord I finally had my eyes opened to the realization there is much MUCH more to this life than Mark's silly talent pool and skills.
We are so much richer in our relationships, in our reliance on faith, in the realization fundamentals of life are met and in this we are Blessed. Besides, you know? When I was allowed this wonderful blessing of SCS, then was allowed to program myself, then realized it worked so very well, career became once again within grasp, and now so many more doors are opening!!
Before, I was selfish with my personal time. Now, there is time to provide help and much needed help it is for others who need help, whether it is free legal help, counselling to get through pain problems, or help finding that next career opportunity for the unemployed. So many many riches in interpersonal relationships have become part of our lives since we "lost everything." How cool is that???
So, my friend, you have life ahead, and time to be healed through this which may bring wonderful pain management to you,
I so very much hope and pray this will be the case for you,
Yes, I feel it,
