Midway Through MIRRORS

“Grace means that in the middle of our struggle the referee blows the whistle and announces the end of the game. We are declared winners and sent to the showers.  It’s over for all huffing, puffing piety to earn God’s favor; it’s finished for all sweat-soaked straining to secure self-worth; it’s the end of all competitive scrambling to get ahead of others in the game.  Grace means that God is on our side and thus we are victors regardless of how well we have played the game. We might as well head for the showers and the champagne celebration.” Donald McCullough

    The Mirrors series, from the very first week, made a huge difference in my life. I have a relationship with an older sibling that is very troublesome and when I am with that sibling I am constantly being judged and made to feel ignorant and inferior. I attended the first Mirrors series on a Saturday night and had to be in my father’s hospital room with this sibling on Sunday morning. I was able to reflect back to what you said about not paying attention to what other peoples mirrors reflected on us, but only God’s. I was able to stand tall, be strong and not care what dirogatory comments my sibling made to me. I felt confident, secure and loved by God. After I left the hospital and drove the hour and half back home to Aurora, my spirit and soul was rejoicing on how “free” I felt. I have been at the hospital and out of town for the second and third weeks of the series but have faithfully listened to the podcasts.
    My husband and I have a friend who is stuggling with depression and career issues and we were able to get him to attend the first week of the Mirrors series and keep encouraging him to listen to the podcasts as well. We pray that it will touch his heart also and help him heal.

    We are so thankful for your messages every week Scott, as they are grounded in our daily struggles and help carry us through the week ahead with love, knowledge and spiritual guidance every step of the way.
