Are you a zombie?
Do you struggle to break old habits…ever feel out of control?
Do you feel like you are not only having a bad day but a bad life?
Are you haunted by your past?
Do you ever wonder if there really is a purpose to this life?
If this is you, I invite you to join me on a journey. An adventure to look at life differently, through a different lens.
-that you might find the truth that has always been there, just beyond your reach.
-that you could be set free from bad habits, addictions, and strongholds.
-that you could become truly alive!
In the movie, Pirates of the Caribbean, pirates on the ship, The Black Pearl, are cursed so that they are, “neither living nor dead.” They look perfectly human (well as human as a sea worn pirate can look). Only the moonlight reveals them for who they are: rotting corpses that can’t be killed. In the same way, it is only through the illumination of spiritual light, God’s word, do we understand our true spiritual state. The bible says that we have a body, soul and spirit (1 Thessalonians 5:23). When we have a wound or scar on our physical body it is obvious. Even more pronounced are battle wounds where someone loses an eye, arm or a leg. Yet wounds or scars or other “battle wounds” that occur on our soul or spirit go unseen. Only through spiritual eyes and the light of God’s word can we see these areas of pus and rotting flesh, and begin to find the healing we need.
Many people today are barely living, struggling to survive, carrying around deep emotional and spiritual battle wounds, stuck in a rut or spiritual deadness. The Apostle Paul wrote in Ephesians 2:1-2, “And you were dead in the trespasses and sins in which you once walked…” We were “dead” people walking, or to allude to AMC TV series, we were “The Walking Dead.” We were zombies.
In the pages and posts that follow, I invite you on a journey out of zombieland and into a life where you are really living. Will you join me?
