I beginning to see privilege and a smooth life as an obstacle for growth. What I wanted essentially for my children; changing to want them to experience the hard, boggy sediments that capture your feet, realizing that the only escape is Christ.
My childhood was full of quaking moments, full of many fears of the people who surrounded me and the wanting to escape others' decisions.
Only to have created a life where scars are few and lessons are learned from viewing others lives. Pulling at my heart that I was once there but these people who follow along behind me are only seeing, not living.
Jesus, was a craving in my youth of constant peace and ultimate surrender of who was in control and for me seeing his hands at work so young has been my true privilege, for I have never doubted his presence, his realness, or who He is to me.
But my faith doesn't transfer, only shared, seen by those close to me.
I know shaky ground comes to us all, God allowing moments to rock us and rely on His steady hand, but I do wonder if privilege and a smooth road build us?, or blind us?
