Dear Toph -
How wonderful that you work with abused children. My heart gets broken over the suffering that so many little ones go through during the years when they're so vulnerable & in need of protection.
While I loved the movie, it didn't penetrate to my heart, as I had hoped it would. I don't think it was the movie's fault, or it's director's fault. Rather, there's something within me that seems to barricade in my heart, protecting it not only from abuse, but from sensing God's love in a deep way as well. I "know" His love, but I yearn for a more intimate experience of that love in my heart.
You wrote: For me, someday, with God's help, I'll see the real thing.
That's my heart cry! Do you mean you'll see the "real thing" while sill here on earth, or are you referring to once you're in heaven with Him? I'd love to receive whatever healing/deliverance/revelation is necessary to enable me to receive all that He has to give, here and now.
