I am returning to the seminary in January. I spent the last year or more doing some heavy duty soul-searching and healing from my past with professionals from the VA. I am hoping that the cleansing will give me a place to be safe and to see reality in the moment; not reality as it was. I also know much more about what I am getting into when I go back; no rose colored glasses here!
I had no idea when I left over a year or more ago (or so), that I would ever think of returning. I am sure it is providential that God allowed me to run from God to find my path back to God. It’s one of those imponderables when dealing with the divine.
I do feel free and content and I am most excited about returning. One thing I am doing this time is I am keeping my Fortress of Solitude.
