So what happened to us? When did we become these peole who value nice things and good looks and fame over other real live people? When did I decide that a new purse or a chocolate cookie was what would make me feel whole inside? When did that idea ever make sense…that something so trivial and temporary and insignificant fill the void in my soul? Where did these deep insecurities come from that drive me to be so judgmental and callous and selfish towards other people?
I know the answers to all of this and how to remedy it…but sometimes I am still amazed at the depravity within.
And yet He still loves and provides, chastens and delivers, loves and listens, rescues and redeems. All is not lost. In fact, hope abounds.
