It seems harder than ever to discern truth from error. Heck, half the world thinks the distinction itself is a mistake. So, you end up feeling guilty, or perhaps uninformed if you WANT to try and figure that out. Anything goes, they say, except one thing. You cant say that "anything goes" is wrong. That one idea will get you in a world of trouble these days. You're ignorant, a neanderthal. Oh, I'm not talking about the general world we live in. I don't expect them to understand, or see the same right/wrong distinctions necessarily. Its the church, the people who claim to be followers of Jesus. A growing number have become so intellectually sophisticated that they have to come up with all sorts of symbolic understandings of His word to avoid the embarrassment of being laughed at by the educated people of this world. "To the Greeks it is foolishness..."

Lord, help us to be humble enough to simply believe.

Faith is all encompassing, a way of life. Its not a tool you pull out when you need it. The life God created us for is fully rooted and grounded in a trust in Him. Sometimes it is passive, a place of peace and rest. Sometimes its aggressive, a choice to actively turn away from fear and unbelief in the face of difficulty or danger. Modern concepts of faith are often shallow, and consequently leave us floundering in tough times.

Lord, help us understand what it really means to walk by faith.

Its so easy to become enslaved, and so hard to break free. We cant do it ourselves, but we do have to seek the One who has the power to deliver. Even that requires Help, but He is willing and able. He met me this morning. It was real, and touched my soul. He is faithful. I want to know Him more than anything, but I am weak beyond words. Help Lord. Help me to show up every day. Help me to turn to you every time I hear the whisper of your Spirit calling...

getting started...

Okay....gonna try this again. My first post got lost in the ozone. Fortunately, I didnt say anything profound, so no big deal. Anyway, I just wanted to get this started today, so I would have a place to come to muse and vent and probably ramble....

We will see what comes.
