If there is something, anything
that gets between you and God,
then whatever it is,
it needs to be cut away.
It needs a scalpel moment.
-Dr. Benjamin Reaves
Is there something in your life you'd be better off without? A relationship causing you pain? Circumstances pressing you down? Something separating you from your Maker? Maybe you need a scalpel moment.
This is not a book about medical care, but spiritual care. A description and prescription of those times when God steps in - like a skilled surgeon - and cuts something from our life. While it may be painful at the time, and may even cause us to question God's love, a scalpel moment is actually an act of grace.
