- Death of an Idol -

I've been kind of quiet for a while now, but I thought I would share an experience I had with all of you.
Lastnight, I was here at the house, singing and praising the Lord. We were having a really wonderful time together, and since I had had a job until 12-30-05, I haven't really been able to just take an hour and just devote it totally to the Lord because of the schedule I had to be on.
Anyhow, I was happily worshipping the Lord when I thought I heard my husband pull up into the driveway. Instantly I thought "What's he doing here? I don't want him here tonight." It was then I realized that I had finally knocked my idol off his pedestal. Yup, my beloved husband is no longer the focal point of my life. Kind of amazing since in the past I would have fought to the death for just 10 minutes of his time and attention. It's amazing what God will do in your life when you decide to put Him first isn't it? I honestly believe that this change, this growth and maturity in me will free my husband to be just that, a husband, when he comes home. He won't have to be the point of my existence, happiness, or contentment anymore. He can just be the man God created him to be, and that's a good thing. I believe that he was never created to be the things I depended on him to be all those years. I believe it's a kind of liberty that I think he was seeking when he got into this mess so long ago.
I've been standing for restoration since 1994. It's taken me this long to figure this out, please, learn from my experience and don't waste precious time having to go around the mountain over and over again to learn this lesson.
God Bless,
