Fork Lake, Alberta; August, 2006
LET us not be lulled asleep by a false sense of peace and comfort. The past few weeks, the words continue to ring in my heart:
The calm before the storm…
I sense an urgency once again to keep my heart right with God at all times. Or as one person shared a "word" with me this week,
Quick—circumcise your hearts!
Indeed, this is the time to cut away the desires of the flesh which are at war with the Spirit. Frequent Confession and the Eucharist are like two blades of a pair of spiritual scissors.
Behold, the hour is coming and has arrived when each of you will be scattered… In the world you will have trouble, but take courage, I have conquered the world. (John 16:33)
Put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the desires of the flesh. (Rom 13:14)
