I don’t always agree with God. My immediate response to confusing circumstances isn’t always to trust God. Sometimes I allow disappointment, doubt, or weariness to create distance in my relationship with God.
In those moments I feel powerless and I rebel against the practices that will bring me peace because how do you worship the One who disappointed you?
When you give up in the tension you forfeit the opportunity to have a more resilient relationship. So I lean in. I let my heart break. I let my expectations be rearranged. I grieve. I breathe.
And it’s only then that I remember the track record of God. The holiness. The promises. I experience the resurrection of my spirit and I am made new. Not because I deserve it, but because we serve a faithful God that will be faithful even when we have an affair with doubt, anger, and disappointment.
I want to share with you what I’m learning about those powerless seasons and how it develops true power. Grab a friend and join me tonight on YouTube or Facebook at 5pm PST. I want my scars to be your teacher.
