BEWARE THE HIBERNATING BEARS

Guarding and purifying our hearts is the most important thing we can do on a regular routine.

 “… if we don’t let God deal with every part of our pasts, our hurts, our secrets, our errors in judgement, our mistakes, our sins, our handicaps in our backgrounds, any one of them can be like a hibernating bear…” 

 

(Beth Moore – ‘When Godly People Do Ungodly Things: Finding Authentic Restoration in an Age of Seduction’)

What an awesome quote. I downloaded this book as a freebie on Kindle a few weeks ago – really good stuff. SO VERY IMPORTANT!

For me the picture of a hibernating bear is incredibly powerful. There always comes a wake-up time! And when it wakes it is hungry; on the prowl – emerging as a predator – violent and destructive. How often do we picnic in the mouth of the bear’s cave, oblivious, or believing we are safe?! 

Let’s seek grace to deal with everything that haunts our hearts. May they not be the caves of sleeping bears!

Thank you Beth, for sharing this, and for blessing us with your vital revelation.
