“Blessed are the Stone-Turners”
When God looks into your soul, what does He see? Many of us have spent a lifetime managing our image while neglecting our souls. We strive for that which is prized by the world but put little thought into what God cherishes. One of the greatest things God does for us is help us see the truth about ourselves. When you invite God into the secret space of your soul, you become vulnerable to Him. God wants to bring the ugly things that grow in the dark into the light so we can be healed.
