It feels different from the September Blues. I know that a change is coming, and I am trying to keep up with the preparations in this time of transition. This October Blues feels so much different than the trying and testing September Blues, as I am moving through the changes, the cold, and the ever increasing darkness. It feels less speedy and more authentic.

Just a week ago, I was walking through the streets of the extremely noisy and busy New York City, and now I am sitting in the kitchen of a home in a quiet Danish town staring outside the window, thinking about what Jesus Christ told me when I first became a believer in Him in the eighties.
So you cannot become my disciple without giving up everything you own. Luke 14:33 NLT
He went on to say; If you love me, obey my commandments. John 14:15 NLT
I did what He asked of me, and after all these years of going through the many changes and testing’s that could have separated me from God’s love, I have come to the following conclusion;
And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:38-39 NLT
