you've got to crush the grape to get the wine

No, we aren't tending a vineyard.
But we have been crushed. Ground. Shattered. Demolished. Decimated.
The business is falling apart.
Pride is being exposed.
Sin is laughing in our faces.

There is nowhere to go but to God.
He is there.
He has always been there.
He is forgiving.
He is healing.
He is picking up the pieces.
He is making all things new.
We are not standing yet but we are not down and out.
We have been humbled and hope to stay there - standing tall - under His grace.
"A bruised reed He will not break And a dimly burning wick He will not extinguish; He will faithfully bring forth justice." Isaiah 42:3


  1. <3 Prayers are with you, friend! (And I've been wanting to comment on this for days but our internet's been sketch! I was able to read but not comment. Just know I love you and am lifting you up to our Father!)

  2. Thanks Rach, We are well. I'm following your story, too, as you tell it.
