Recovery in the Bible (RIB)
It is so challenging to be in the Land of Good Enough, surrounded by fruit that is of this world and by its ways. It looks so good, but it is produced from sunshine and not by the Light of the Son. Thus, the Light of Christ neither shines in it nor from it. In truth, this fruit is merely Good Enough, blooming from that tree instead of the Tree of Life. It is abundant fruit, yet secondary... merely paraphernalia. I found it challenging, confusing, and conflicting (C-Cubed). Now I am home, where I look over the Golden Pond, eyes fixed on Christ, and I embark to walk across the water yet again, into another day.
And as I walk, I pray for those as blind as I was once, until the Most High God opened my eyes to things invisible and to going His Way instead of mine. With gratitude, I remember His pressing me into circumstances through which I pushed into His True Light. I pray that many be granted sight to realize their blindness and cry out for the Tree of LIfe. That they, like me, would be granted the sight to find it and wisdom to refuse the lesser tree. Forever.
