The Shack, Page 142

"Why do I have so much fear in my life?"

"Because you don't believe. You don't know that we love you. The person who lives by their fears will not find freedom in my love. I am not talking about rational fears regarding legitimate dangers, but imagined fears, and especially the projection of those into the future. To the degree that those fear have a place in your life, you neither believe I am good nor know deep in your heart that I love you. You sing about it; you talk about it, but you don;t know it."

Francesca looked down once more at the water and breathed a huge sigh of the soul. "I have so far to go."

***********************************************

Lord, deliver me from all my fears. Help me to know your love and goodness without shadow. Help me to trust without reserve. Help me!!!

So here's the deal - this past Tuesday evening I am meeting the girls at Abuelo's at 5:30ish - I get off work at 4:00 so I told them I would go early and save us a table - having some time to kill I go into Hastings an low and behold "The Shack" is on an endcap. I figure I will just sit down and read the intro - a short time later my phone rings and it's the girls asking where I'm at - It's 5:30 and I'm 4 1/2 chapters into the book and not enough $$ on me to purchase the book! What a cruel, cruel trick fate played on me! I'm heading back tomorrow at lunch to purchase the book! I can't stand not know what is going to happen! Thanks for sharing about "The Shack".

PS I love your new page and all of the pictures.
