Excerptionera

I've had nothing to say for a long while. Kinda long while, anyway.

I just want to take some excerpts from a few emails and chats and pray God they encourage you.


"While you are alive in Christ, you still have a sin nature - a dead weight, a dead body, that you're chained to, much like a Siamese twin. That burden you carry around for the rest of your earthly life. And to prevent us from thinking of ourselves as gods, I think He lets us have the weaknesses to try and make us rely on Him more.

All of us struggle with idolatry in every shape and form. It's not even as simple as a graven image. And any addiction when submitted to becomes Idolatry.

And yes, the sin is big and black and monstrous in the eyes of a pure and holy God. But what we forget is that He's looking at us through the red blood of Christ - and we're already pure. The biggest struggle is what you're enduring - getting up and going again.

The righteous man falls seven times and rises again. You can't. Because you're not righteous. And that's where your gaze is focussed. Your righteousness is in Christ, and He is PERFECTING you. Not perfectED, perfectING. You're growing. Changing. Into Him. Don't let Satan's traps hinder your longing feet.

You can do this. You will fall. It will be hard. But lift your head from the chain holding your feet to the Hand with the key. And carry on limping forward. You love Him more than this, because He will give you strength to.


You need to keep going. Back to God. Over and over. Because if we don't seek Him...He's not some easy go thing in the sky. You
have to knock, and knock and knock and knock and keep on trying. He answers. He just has to know your heart - if you think He's worth it.


What do you do when you start wanting to die?

You...make sure you live. Oh, God...how do we do it?

The only way I know how, is to call out to God, and to force yourself to take another step. And another. And believe in the total unseen, that there will be a future that others will be blessed because of the pain of the now.

What if the pain of now is a curse, not a blessing? It is because of the curse. And it can be used as a blessing. It may not seem like it can...but there will be one day, I promise you, that faith will be sight."
