Welcome to A Life Examined

What is the examined life? A life worth living! As I look at the road ahead, I take all the baggage from the past and use it as experience - the pain and the passion, the sorrow and the joy - allowing it to carve wisdom into my mind and hope into my spirit.
There is no experience that can't be useful to me at some point in my life. There is no lesson learned that cannot make a contribution to the future.
A tiny drop of water is a part of the ocean. A tiny speck in the night sky is a ginormous star in the distance. It all depends on perspective.
So, this examined life is to offer reflections in the hope of discussing things which are of value to myself and to others.
Love, Sarah

You know what dredging is? A lake might have something in it that needs to be found. So the water gets pumped out until that 'something' if retrieved.
I had a metaphorical dredging experience over the last few days. Some 'stuff' buried deep inside me had to be found, and extricated. And it was.
The details may be interesting but not life-giving, so I won't go into detail. What I will say is that, prayer, fasting, God's Word and hope will draw from us that which does not belong, and we come forth 'shining as gold'.

So, fear not dredging. It may be exhausting and a bit daunting, but the FREEDOM that results is more than worth the effort.
God bless!
