Thank you

For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. Colossians 1:13-14

I’m pulling the blog I posted last night. It seems like there was something missing from the story; something I can’t quite put my finger on. But I’d like to understand whatever it is before sharing the story. I still wanted to include the following portion…

Thank you for the kind comments and emails on yesterday’s post on my drug overdose. They were much appreciated. I was surprised at my own emotion, even today. There is a quote from a HOPE International microfinance client in the Congo that hits me hard every time I hear it: “I really give thanks because I was like an orphan. HOPE is like a father who came to save his children, fighting poverty with his bare hands.” When I think about how close I was to an eternity away from love, this picture is so real to me. Of a father fighting not only poverty, but every form of darkness, conquering even death itself. Okay, I’m in tears again. All I can say is thank you God. I am grateful.
