I read back through my journal this morning. Two months ago, I described myself as disconnected, angry, and not very content with much of anything. I decided to go to a Christian Counselor who recommended a couple of books for me to read. Both of them hit me squarely between the eyes. A third book came out from one of my favorite authors during this stretch. It is titled, The Cure, by John Lynch. On top all the other work I’ve done on myself over the years these three books in succession have had a profound impact on me. During these months I have been writing in a journal and developing my own value system. At the point of this writing I’m choosing to accept the truth I am declared righteous through Jesus Christ. I also have now developed my very own defined value system. It isn’t my mom’s, wife’s or church’s, it is mine. What a powerful thing that has been. It has been an amazing couple months on the journey!
