Cutting Cords

Posted by scott on Thursday, January 01, 1998

1998 I was watching a TV program that had a famous, aging movie actor, Kirk Douglas who starred in the ‘50’s Spartacus Movie; he recently had a stroke and was being interviewed. He said that all his fame meant nothing to him now and he only wanted to get to know God. At this point in the show, I gazed out my living room window and in my mind’s eye I saw a picture of the earth with long cords attached to it. At the end of each cord was something I valued that I had placed more importance on than God. I was asked by God if I loved Him more then my attachments to my church, my business, my family, my wife, my disease. He showed me that I must cut these cords and look to Him for the source of all my needs.
