For the past several months, I have been on a mission of sorts. Writing about faith.
I process things better if I write about them. I can get onto paper what is rolling around like tumbleweeds in my head, constantly crashing into other thoughts. I can spit out my questions and come back later when the answer is found. I can dictate my emotions, then revise the raw edges away when my pain has lessened. It works for me.
I have no choice, for there is a drive within me to face the hard questions that do not relent until an answer is sufficiently found. I choose to pursue those answers regardless of the result. Should my thinking or belief be found faulty, I change my thinking or belief to match with the truth found in God’s Word.
Back to writing about faith – which is the topic of this particular blog. I met with a rather large faulty thought/belief about this topic. It had clouded my thinking and understanding of Christianity. Not for a few days or months, but for years. This particular topic had been a lingering question in my mind. How does our faith in Christ at salvation connect to our everyday living out of that faith? Why do some people thrive in God’s hands, while others seem to struggle so desperately? The answer has to do with faith.
And, there the writing process began for me. The search for some answers. I have shared snippets of it over the course of time but hope to elaborate more in the months ahead as I share more from my book. So, I leave you with this today:
And without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him. ~Hebrews 11:6, NASB
