The Elephant in the Room

How is it that a couple you've known for years - who've always seemed so happy - suddenly announce that they're separated? Explain to me how your sister, who lights up Facebook with updates about how great life is out of nowhere, sends you a message saying she's at the end of her rope? Surely these are deeply complex situations. But what's also true is that very often we fail to grasp an essential rule of life: if something big and potentially dangerous shows up in your life where it doesn't belong don't hide it or underestimate it. Deal with it. Don't fool yourself into thinking you can live with an elephant in the room. The thing about big bad powerful problems is that if you don't deal with them eventually they deal with you. In this series we will look at what it means to deal with your "elephant" rather than hide them and how doing so brings glory to God and ease to our souls.
