O.k. so it’s been a while since I’ve written anything here. I know I promised to write about what God has taught me through my anxiety issues. Well I realized I’m not quite ready for that yet. Having said that, I will say that one of the main things I’ve gotten from this trial is a little taste of Hell. I think one of the reasons God sends trials our way is to open our eyes to a little taste of what we’ve been saved from if we are his children.
I’ve also gained greater compassion for the lost. What I’m experiencing is temporal. One day I will see Jesus face to face and all my tears and trials will be washed away. I will have an eternity of gazing upon his beauty in paradise. This will not be the case for the unbeliever. They have an eternity of nothing but pain and suffering in store for them if they do not repent and surrender their lives to Jesus.
O.k. so I guess I am sharing a bit of what God has taught me during this trial of anxiety disorder. One day I’ll share more.
I’ll update you on where we are with the whole move thing. No where right now. Our house probably won’t sell this fall so we have set our hopes on the springtime. Until then we are trying to wait patiently on God’s perfect timing. I’m having to learn to be content in whatever situation I am in. He has me here for a purpose after all.
I’ve been reading this book called “Christless Christianity” by Michael Horton. In this book Horton is demonstrating how modern church in America is preaching anything but the Gospel. We’ve become a very “me” centered church, focusing on ourselves and what we have or have not done, rather than the Gospel(that is, what he has done). He also talks about how we all want our best life now, and how ungospel that is. I know I am definitely guilty of striving after my best life now when as Christians we are to set our minds on the our best lives after.
I know this all a bunch of rambling but my point in all this is that it’s not all about me and my happiness but Christ and Him crucified for our sins. We’ve got a lost world out there that is going to face God’s wrath for eternity if we don’t tell them what He has done for them.
Now that it is cold out and I can’t play outside all day, I will probably be blogging more. Stick around!
