I SAMUEL 28 (The Message)
Interesting that the medium screamed when Samuel appeared to her. She was not accustomed to really having anyone appear to her.

Saul faces the reality of his past in this passage. It has caught up with him. It is at this moment that he reaches that ultimate point of brokenness, falling to the ground in front of our God.

I was talking with a friend yesterday about brokenness. Many of us hit that point in a dramatic culmination of events. In others of us, God works more quietly and behind the scenes. But, still, He can bring us to that point where we have to make a choice ... will we truly follow Him or will we continue to follow the ways of our humanity?

While I have given my heart to God, sometimes I wonder ... have I yet hit the point where He will bring me to a truly defining moment of His way or mine? So far, the two have merged fairly well but I have a hunch that at some point I will hit that point of having to make that crucial decision ... and His way may take me to places either physically or in my soul or both ... that are far, far diverged from my way.
