*A note before you read this. After doing an audit of my blog in 2022, I have decided to leave content that speaks to the Christian I was at the time this was written. I no longer identify as Christian (and haven’t for a very long time.) I chose to leave these posts because it is who I was then and it is important to me to be honest and true with every iteration and evolution of self that I experience. I may decide to add comments to the end of posts like this as well
Here’s yesterday’s Praying In Color:
Yesterday, I wrote about spiritual battles. How in the past, I’ve first beat myself up then become depressed and so on.
Today, I was reading Chuck Swindoll’s daily devotion (he’s one of my favorites) and he said:
What do you do when tragedy strikes? What do you do when a test comes? What’s your first response? Is it to complain? To be angry? To blame? To try to reason your way out of it? Or have you formed the habit of doing what Elijah did? Do you go to your special place and get alone with God? Elijah provides a wonderful example for us. No panic. No fear. No rush. No doubt.
Here’s the link in case you want to read the whole thing. When I read that I thought wow. Is this not what I just experienced? Didn’t I just blog about this?
See, sometimes I do listen.
