Faith · Finitude · Miscellaneous

miscellaneous…

Feeling the extent of my finitude today… pressed beyond what I feel to be possible…

Spurgeon reminds me this evening…

[The saints] are constantly opposed, and yet perpetually preserved!

— Charles Spurgeon, Morning and Evening

The cry… and hope… of my heart… my prayer…

I can’t… but You can…!

Thus bringing me to this miscellaneous post…

Regarding… any idols hidden in your heart…?

Feeling the need… (in my finitude)… to explain myself…

I listed two of my specific idols in the afore mentioned post… The Closer… and… Text Twist

Just wanted to clarify… these idols are specific to me…

I’m in no way saying they are an idol to everyone… or that they are evil… in and of themselves…

The enemy chooses… designer idols… for each of us… these just happen to be two I’m susceptible to…

I believe ANYTHING… can become an idol in our life… and that is what we need to be aware of…

Material things… relationships… status… ANYTHING… that we seek to save us… protect us… comfort us… that’s NOT Jesus… just might have the position of idol in our life…

Lastly… (continuing the misc. nature of this post)… tomorrow is Ash Wednesday… the beginning of Lent… for those who follow this tradition…

I’ve felt led… to delve into Romans 8 during this season of the church calendar…

So… weekday posts… beginning tomorrow until Easter… will be a verse… or two… from Romans 8…

Sundays will continue to be centered on The Journey…

I’m approaching this by faith… no real plan… trusting Him to provide each day…

For those who read by email only… you will be a day behind… because that’s just been the nature of this discipline for me…

I get till midnight to post for the day… then the email goes out in the wee early hours of the next morning…

If you want to get them the same day… check in some time during the day… or night… don’t really know when one might get posted…

For now… trusting in Him… to hold together… all I feel Him calling me to do…

Recognizing my fragility… and His strength…

But we have this treasure in jars of clay
to show that this all-surpassing power is from God
and not from us.
2 Corinthians 4:7
Lord… thank You for Your strength…
Despite opposition… pressure… finitude…
You will preserve me…
Amen… Amen… Amen…
