Qualified by God

I have a splitting headache. I am tired. I am confused. I am disappointed. And I am just beginning to read a book that says I shouldn’t expect time with God to make me feel good. Well, I think that is what it says so far; so, so far I like the book. Only because it agrees with my current condition. We shall see.

Today I made some really good and healthy and encouraging choices. I also experienced confusion and disappointment. What is new? According to Solomon, nothing.

I need perseverance really badly right now. I asked someone who knows about perseverance today how they made it through. Honestly, I can’t imagine making it to the other side of what they have seen. The answer? “One day at a time”. I guess the 12-steppers were right when they figured that one out. As I listened to their testimony and dug deeper, I wondered, “But how didn’t you still quit?”

I want my childlike faith and tenacity back. I need it back.

“God, if You are who You say You are, then You are more than enough for me.”

“Lord, if it’s you,” Peter replied, “tell me to come to you on the water.” Matthew
