There was nothing exceptional about what I was feeling really. These are all things many of us face in life at one time or another. And yet at that moment, when the coming together of many difficult things at once flooded over my heart with sadness, God met me.
The Exceptional One transformed those unglued moments into sanctified steps of growth.
Ah-hem…what? Does Lysa really need to receive this email? I had been part of a team praying for Lysa as she wrote her new book “Unglued”, and I wanted to be sensitive about sending unnecessary emails. Is this necessary, Lord? Is this You?
The prompting did not go away, and so I obeyed.
A short time later, I received an email from Lysa that put me in jaw-dropping awe of God’s goodness and faithfulness! I didn’t know why He wanted me to send the email, but He made that clear.
Yes, yes, yes, my friend! This is it! Thank you for your honest unglued admission. It makes us feel a little more normal when we know we are not alone.
Lysa asked me if she could include what I had shared in a chapter she had just written titled “Coming Unglued Isn’t All Bad” and in a sub-section called “A Step Toward Holiness”.
Nine sentences. An act of obedience. And a reminder that He redeems our unglued moments when our hearts are postured in humility before Him.
