At exactly this time last year I was in Rio de Janeiro sitting under the shadow of Christ the redeemer. What a God moment! A moment of clarity that brought everything in my life into focus. Before and since. Knowing I was loved and protected by my Redeemer. Seeing his wide open arms toward me. God had to take me across the world to show me in 3d because, yes, I am that stupid. Maybe not stupid but I was so blinded by lies of unworthiness and self-rejection that it had to take something big to break those feelings – and you don’t get much bigger than the statue of Christ the Redeemer!!
We don’t often get defining moments but that was definitely one. It helped me understand my past and it gave me focus for my future. That sense of love and protection has never left me. So although tonight I’m not actually in Brazil sitting under the shadow of Christ the Redeemer, I am in Ballymena, Northern Ireland sitting under the shadow of Christ the Redeemer.
