Back to the Beginning

God brought me back to the place where it all began, from Conception to Redemption.

Back in 2014, I returned to the place where it all began, the place of life, love, loss, and lies. Loreauville, Louisiana has been a cauldron of secrets, until now. This oxbow bend of rich heritage, where the cane reaches the skies, half way to heaven, the place where two tablespoons of water makes a flood, and the ditches become their own bayous.

This was a place where the truth of my identity was concealed, and is now unveiled.

God directs our pathway back to beginning, to the places of pain, not to Re-inflict the past, but to Redeem the present, and Reclaim the future.

God leads you back, to bring you forward. Most importantly, to bring healing to your wounds, and every broken place becomes whole.

Join me over at Five Minute Friday: Back

How has God led you back, to bring you forward?
