However Dear

"Let nothing, however dear, however loved, absorb your mind and affections, diverting you from the study of God's word or from earnest prayer. Watch unto prayer. Live your own requests. Co-operate with God by working in harmony with Him."~EGW, Pr 79.

"Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit." John 12:24
Something died today, in my heart. It needed to die. I thought it had died long ago.
But this morning I realized it was still very much alive.
Sometimes letting something go, or an idea of something, isn't always easy.
But it must be given up. Buried.
And so I let it go this morning, I buried it.
And when one buries something, they don't expect to pick it back up again, because it's dead.
So this morning I mourn, because of something lost... But rejoice, because in faith, I hope one day this death will result in much fruit.
