Here’s the bottom line. You are not damaged.

“You are not damaged. You are not damaged by other people’s agendas, nor by your attraction to their agendas.”

That is straight out of my journal from a few years back.

Seems obvious, simple even, when I just look at in on the screen.

But it took a long time to get there.

It took daily work, for a couple of years.

It started from a point of complete frustration. Frustration about how I could have given myself wholly over to someone’s agenda, only to watch all of it be destroyed by the issues that drove the agenda.

And then, for me to go and sign up for the same thing again.

I had to figure out what was driving my attraction to agendas and environments that I knew in my gut were wrong.

But I didn’t know that was the issue when I started. I just wanted to work with a spiritual director that I respected.

In the middle of doing the work, that’s where the question, the context and the answers were made clear.

Because I showed up every day.

Because I did the work.

Because God shows up just like He promises, if we will quiet ourselves, focus and listen.

That’s what the folks in the A.B.I.D.E. course are beginning to experience.

You can too, if you want.

You were created for this.

P.S. Just so we are crystal clear. You are not damaged. You are not damaged by other people’s agendas, nor by your attraction to their agendas.
