Breaking Out of the Box?

I wonder why it took so long for me to wake up. Maybe because I thought everything was fine, which it (sorta) was: I mean, no one was falling down the stairs or leaving the car parked on the front lawn in the middle of the night. But also, I did not know anything about DENIAL, and I certainly did not know how to recognize its voice. Now I can detect DENIAL from far away off. Now I know It sounds like this: someone saying, “Everything’s FINE.”

It is very hard to break out of that box. For me, it didn’t even appear to be a cruel box until I finally saw it  was a coffin. That is why I published my story entitled “Whit’s End: Breakdown to Breakthrough.” In it, I tell the truth about what it took to open my eyes to see DENIAL for what it actually is:

Don’t Even KNow I Am Lying

If you are trying to break out of a coffin called DENIAL, take a LOOK INSIDE at Amazon Books, or here on my website under the tab for My Store.

  1. Yup how well I remember, and how grateful I am that you do, too. You truly thought there were slices of pie (family, friends, work, God, whatever, and blah,blah, blah). Now you know that God is The Whole Pie, and you are delighted to be just IN it. I’d say His Divine Intervention has transformed you, Budd, into a very fine Pie ingredient. I am sorry you are having to suffer and go through so many hard things, not knowing what is coming next, but I am awed to see what the LORD has done (and is doing) to equip you for such a time as this. No matter what happens, your test will be turned to Testimony. I believe you are living in 2 Corinthians Chapter 1; that your present affliction will someday bring comfort to others suffering then what you are suffering now. No matter what happens, your story will be true and undeniable evidence that there is life after shipwreck (even in the midst of drowning); that God is weaving something wonderful with all these variously colored threads; that too much of a GOOD thing can be wonderful. Praying for you today at 2pm.

Well, through redemption, the Lord has become my pie and I’m able to share it with the ones I love and even the ones I don’t even like. Why? Because His love for me never fails, never gives up and never runs out on me as I’ve witnessed in this mortal life. In Jesus Calling today…”I am with you and will watch over you wherever you go” is such a comforting feeling for me. And to know “I am with you always, to the very end of age”…speaks volumes to His love for all of us who believe in Him. I’ve come to realize that losing my wife was His Divine intervention for me to be welcomed in to His kingdom. No matter what I may lose in my life, including my wife of over 30 years, I will NEVER lose my relationship with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Amen!
