It’s funny because, a lot times, we are so quick to point the finger at the church; “No, because the church did this, I’m not going anymore.” or “No, because I didn’t like what they preached, so I’m not going.” and sometimes even, “I’m so overwhelmed, so I can’t keep doing this”.
Come on, my friend! Stop with the excuses!
Regardless of what the church did or did not do, YOU are in charge of your spiritual life. NO ONE ELSE! At the end of the day, if you chose not to go to church, no one made the choice for you, but you. So if you love God, and you want serve Him all the days of your life, put the excuses aside, and recognize that in the midst of the hurt, in the midst of the pain, the rumors, the gossip, the false accusations, the feeling of being overwhelmed, the anger, the confusion, in the midst of that all that….
GOD IS GOD AND HE DOES NOT CHANGE! Your circumstance does not change who He is. Your anger does not change who He is. Your confusion does not change who He is.
This post might sound a bit harsh, but I felt this so heavy in my spirit and I had to share it just as the Holy Spirit but it in my heart. No filter. But it’s because I love you, and I want to see you get to the level that God wants you to be in.
I urge you, my friend. Don’t give up. Don’t stop going to church. Don’t stop seeking clarity from above. Don’t stop trusting in God. I’ve been there. I almost gave up and it cost me almost completely losing who I was in Him because I couldn’t depend on Him to be my Peace, my Comforter, my Father.
God’s calling you to let Him be your Peace. He wants to be your Comforter. He wants be your Father.
