This is amazingly written; I'm very surprised that you don't have any comments yet. The very notion of choosing sanity is quite appealing, and you've done a wonderful job of sharing your painful journey with your readers.
Thank you for being so open to share your experience. I am recently going through some very difficult situations myself;marriage problem!,have a five month old daughter who I want to grow up with a good solid Christian father. But your story reminded me that sometimes we feel like we are the only ones in the world hurting the way we are. But we all suffer. What an awesome Savior we have that brings beauty from ashes when we turn to Him and don't allow our hearts to become bitter but allow them to become better through the trials we face. God bless you and may He multiply His joy and peace to you.
As one of four judges this week, I found your article to be excellently written.
Congratulations, Joy. Your entry has placed 8th in Level 1. The Lists for the Top 15 in each Level and the Top 40 overall are available in the Weekly Results and Highest Rankings forum of our Faithwriters Message Boards.
I think the Lord brought me here this morning for a reason. I needed to hear this. Your article is more a blessing than you know.
I especially like this one, Joy. I know what I'll visualize when I lay my head down tonight and talk to God.
Ohhh...I love the gentle steady progression to peace and rest. It would help to quote the passages that gave you comfort, so the reader can be learning too.
Relinqishment: a choice for sanity. O how you nailed it. Surrender to the Spirit of God. Letting go into the only hope: Jesus. I do love this piece rediscovered so many years later. Wish you the best.
