There have been so many things going on lately that I have put off writing here. The conference that I've been coordinating and planning for the past year begins at the end of next month. That leaves me with a bunch of last minute things to take care of, and it leaves me little time to write. I heard something today that I want to unpack a little. The preacher at the church that I've been attending was talking about life issues that distract us from our relationship from God and from encouraging others. He was talking about hurts and pains and he compared them to a piece of yarn with a bunch of knots in it...Before that piece of yarn can be used to its fullest, the knots have to be untied. In most cases, this takes special care and often times a pin of some sort. The process is meticulous and the pin is sharp. It made me think about my life. I know that I've been hanging onto some knots that keep me from being fully available for use by God. I need some untying. Its something to think about...
