(By Seth Barnes) When winter comes, I have a love-hate relationship with the indoors. Baby it’s cold outside. But I know that if I sit around the fireplace too long, claustrophobia will set in. God had to call me out from the comfort of a world I could control before I could hear his call to walk in the mystery of sonship.

I spent five years dying before I began to learn how to live. I was fired from the organization I helped start, Karen was pregnant with Leah, and we had no insurance. I could have missed the plot and seen myself as a victim. But God was taking me through a process as old as mankind. It began with Adam having to leave a place of comfort – out of the garden. MORE
