Go ahead and leave, Father, Mother, Husband, Wife, Children, Friends! Run away as fast as you can. If you had not left, C.S. Lewis would not have been surprised by joy. If you had not left, John the Baptist would not have been the voice crying in the wilderness. Only then will the ripped apart deserted ones know from whence the best help comes. As Pastor Hunt says in Courageous, “those who go through this and trust in the Lord discover a comfort and an intimacy with God that most people never experience.”
