Are You Desperate to See?

Jesus didn't die so we could have a religion.

Don't Let the Grass Grow Under Your Feet

"Satan's angel did his best to get me down. What he in fact did was push me to my knees." 2 Corinthians 12:8 Message

Is that my response when I begin to feel overwhelemed? When life is pushing so hard I feel like I am going to snap in the face of it all. I feel sometimes that the life of a devoted Christian is kinda like rolling a huge stone wheel up a gently sloping hill. If I break then the wheel rolls back down to the bottom of the hill. And I have come so far. I make an effort, I double down, buck up and keep going. Sure, sometimes I have to rest with my back to the wheel to keep it in place so I can get up and move it more.

When I get down, do I get down on my knees in prayer? Do I take a position of humility before the Lord? Do I allow him to be my strength when I no longer have the ability to walk or even look up? And in my weakness, his strength pushes me further and takes me farther than I could have ever dreamed I would go. He fulfills me.
