An excerpt from a journal entry...
"I have also been reminded of the peace and power of Prayer. It is such a simple thing to Trust. Simple enough that children are the best at it, and instead of years and wisdom adding to our ability, in many cases time only hinders our capacity for raw Trust/Faith. But without real trust, it doesn't matter how much we go to Church, or read our Bible, it doesn't matter how 'Spiritual' we might try to be. If we don't begin to really Trust God, we may as well know nothing of Him. For it is only in the Trusting that we find ourselves enveloped in the peace of His promises."
| Yes, but what about pain? Hurt? Betrayal? How many times does the destruction of self come between us and God?|
Why, if God wants us to trust Him, does he destroy the very things we hold dear? Is it a joke? A way to entertain himself? Why are humans his pawns? Why dangle things in our faces we can't have?
Why give us love only to tear it away and our most desperate of places? How many times does he have to laugh and giggle at us before we decide that it isn't worth it?
Why do we HAVE to be Christians?
It doesn't make any sense. You toy with someone, and generally, they aren't going to trust you anymore. It's all a game. Like chess.
