Wow! Our God is so much bigger and better than I can ever hope to understand! If he could provide that much for those people in need, what can and will he do for you in your life?
Growing up I was that child who would ask questions almost constantly. I love learning and gathering information, which is
I believe that God came into our mess, took the band-aid off of humanity’s wound and did surgery. God was willing to step in and save us, and while we can’t save anyone, we could still step in and help. Who can you take the time to help, and in doing so point them back to the God who was willing to give everything for them? Are you willing to step in and do some “open heart surgery” on yourself, so that you can take that same freedom to others? Are you ready to get uncomfortable so that the world can be changed?
I feel like there are a lot of spiritual agoraphobes out there; Christians who are weighed down by sin, even though they don’t have to be. Are you walking in the freedom that Christ has paid for, or are your a spiritual agoraphobe, being held back from truly living?
Despite your present circumstance, know that you are the apple of His eye, His precious child, and don’t let anyone or anything tell you any different. Cry out to Him in the middle of your wilderness, ask Him to meet you in the middle of your “waste” and wait to see what He will do. He surely won’t disappoint.
What is God calling you to do? Even though it may be scary, get out from behind your “baggage”. Don’t think that your past disqualifies you from doing amazing things, in fact, your specific set of experiences may be what uniquely qualifies you to do something incredible. Don’t let your baggage hold you back, step out in faith and be amazed at what God can do through you!
I have decided to start a blog to share my thoughts about God, the Bible, life, etc. to anyone willing to read this. I am a work in progress…
