Where are you struggling in your walk with Christ right now?
I chose this topic because I am struggling to faithful pursue the Lord in scripture. I am frustrated with individuals around me who don't know the truth of scripture yet I am having the hardest time sitting down to rest in God's word. While visiting family in California I watched an episode of "Wife Swap". I learned so much, and felt so much shame as well. One of the moms was a belly dancer who spent her life belly dancing. She had belly dancing students come to her home and clean the house while she danced or meditated. She had a symbol of every faith system in her home because she did not want to be wrong about any one of them, and be overlooked by one. Okay so enough of the back ground. Here is the point. This woman who is hopeless, lost and blind to the truth takes time everyday for one hour to pray/breath/summon spirits/whateva! But, I am struggling to find time to read the word? WHAT! I have the eternal hope of glory. I am in relationship with the King of Kings, the Alpha and Omega. I have been blessed to be called a child, a joint heir to the throne with Christ and I can't find time to study. That show slapped me in the face so hard I can still feel the sting even now. Therefore, I must be honest and say I am without and lacking. My prayer is that the conviction of the simple show will bring me to a place of repentance and restoration in the area of study and resting in the joy of the Lord once again.
There you have it, my struggle. What is yours? If you are not currently struggling through anything would you be kind enough to leave a prayer for me and or others in the comment section of this post. Let us build on another up in the faith of Christ!
