Midweek Musings

The women's LifeServe group that I belong to is currently reading the book What Happens When Women Walk in Faith by Lysa TerKeurst.   

In the chapter called Roadblocks and Reassurances, Lysa writes this:

The enemies to a great life are not tragedy, heartbreak, and hard times.  The enemy to having a great life is to simply lead a good life.  A life where you seek comfort and ease above growth.  A life where you avoid the risk of taking chances with God.  We live in a fallen world, so no one can avoid every pothole in the road of life.  You will have hard times.  You will get bumped and bruised, but you don't have to get bewildered.  Say yes to God now. Say yes to whatever He brings your way.  Seek Him wholeheartedly through it.  Ponder what He is teaching you. Surrender what He is requiring from you.  And know that He is working out His wonderful plans for you right now behind the scenes.

What a great thought for the middle of our week!

Please post any great thoughts you may have to share!

Kim, I've been in conversation with a non-believer in the last week, and am finding it very challenging to explain the faith life to one who believes that faith is a huge scam. So reading your words gave me a little lift, reminded me that it's worth trying to explain it, no matter how inadequate we'll end up being in the attempt.
