Has anyone else besides me noticed that many many blogs are by Christian (at least professing Christian) authors?
Does anyone else besides me find it more difficult to seek the LORD in the sunshine and roses than in the troubled times?
I have been thinking about this lately.
Right now, life is good.
He keeps providing and it is so cool to watch.
I have a gut feeling (no we do not trust feelings so we'll see how this one turns out) that something big is going to happen this summer.
With all the little things happening it may just mean that a whole series of little things are going to bless my socks off. Either way. Something is goings ons.
Even so, I am finding it all too easy to try to coast.
Thankfully, He keeps jerking me back into reality and I remember that coasting never works.
That bike your on will just role backwards if you don't pedal hard!
I'm so excited about what I am learning and about what He is doing even though I am not sure what it is yet!
One thing I do have to guard against besides just trying to coast is wondering what trial is up next.
The enemy wants me to get lost in worrying about tomorrow and not delighting in the blessings of today. I could work myself into a tizzy thinking of the worst possible things that could come next. Makes my stomach sick.
I think maybe it stems from a wrong belief/knowledge of the character of God.
There is something cynical in my thinking.
I have this wicked idea that all this good just means doom is approaching because He is just setting me up to see how bad I break when I fall.
In my head I know full well that is not true but it seems today, I'm not believing it in my heart.
It is true that when you aren't in a trial you've a) just come out of one or b) are fixing to walk into one.
But the lie is that He causes it or even allows it out of malevolence. Of course He doesn't! He does want us to become more like Him so He allows things to happen but it is not part of His perfect will that we should hurt.
If that were true what would be the harm in the fall!?
So when I am tempted to borrow trouble I must go to the Scriptures.
"Do not worry about tomorrow..."
I need to do some searching for ones about His love for His children and commit them to memory. Does anyone have any verses that they are particularly comforted by?
