As the wife of a U.S. Army veteran and being called to be an…Oilfied Spouse and Special-Needs Mother for many years now…I have heard this in one form or another throughout my life.
“We are just worlds apart.” Or “Your lifestyle is very different from ours, etc.”
These statements are accurate!
They are true most of the time.
The rarity…is finding someone who has been in our shoes (even mostly in our shoes).
There’s a lot about my life…that makes it WORLDS apart from most!
But when this becomes a mindset and a reason to create and keep distance…
It goes against the very nature of how we were created and why!
We all forget (even me) from time to time…
Our heavenly Father is a father of community…yet He created us all unique & vastly different…in our personalities…in the callings on our lives!
Praise Our Father In Heaven…
HE is NOT worlds apart!
He HAS been in our shoes!
Every different kind!
Of every different color!
So…Daddy-God is all about connection, sharing, transparency, love…investing in each others’ lives…with the goal of glorifying His kingdom!
Not isolating because we feel…That the challenge of ‘needed effort’ …
To understand & invest…is bigger than WHO HE IS!
We should take it seriously…because Christ did and still does!
I pray…Daddy-God’s SHALOM peace…that protects and refreshes…that is beyond your understanding…
Will saturate your mind/body/soul. ❤
