Layers of an Onion…..my life’s skin….a quest to know Him!
In 2003, my husband died (that’s just a beginning fact),
and I got to know a couple afterwards.
The wife who’s name is not of importance to this story,
was the beginning of the layer of my change!
“I want to be like her Father!”, I said in all seriousness.
And so it began, my change from the innocent woman that I was,
and that idea was the beginning. I had no idea where
that idea would take me!
Change……a word I don’t like! (I don’t like to change!
It’s the unknown that frightens me, and has me scurrying
back to the known.) The first change began with a class
and then a retreat. One that began the change into delving
outward as one would if you were cutting an onion,
and began in the middle with the smallest piece.
I felt as though I were an unimportant entity
in the world. No real meaning to anyone.
That was the beginning. At the retreat,
I clearly heard God say to me, “My child you are important
to Me and you are enough!”
Words that meant the world to me! To “fit it”
in the world is important, but to know deep in your soul
that God thinks you are “enough”
is truly a life changing experience in itself!
As I get to know Him, really get to know Him,
He reveals slowly deeper changes that have
to be made to arrive in a better place, in a better
frame of mind to understand. It isn’t and
never will be only “one change” to understand
the real God! But an on-going relationship with Jesus/God,
one that begins as a small piece of an onion,
and blooms through the different layers of the onion!
A more and more in-depth understanding
of the next level. And yet I would never
go back to the “me”
wanting to accept the life that
the world hands out!
Are you ready for a life made to love God?
All you have to do is ask Him…….
then hold on and enjoy the ride!
