Popcorn Christianity

I was just sitting here reading my last blog, and guess what???? I could've written the exact one, all over again! I guess being a slow learner is better than being a fool who refuses to ever learn, eh? And as long as I'm sharing my shortcomings, I think you might like to know that I have the hardest time dealing with disappointment. My girlfriend laughed at me when I mentioned that to her this morning because she has noticed this in me, too. Drats and double drats.

However, let's not stop with those, because it doesn't end there. Oh, no! The good news is that when we become aware of our sins and failings, we just march our little selves right up to our jumbo God and ask for mercy and help. Now, I hadn't thought of this till I was just now typing, because, well, I was living by my feelings! Yep, I was weighed down with feelings of failings. (Does that make any sense?) But... smile, smile, smile... not anymore.

Nope, the burden has been lifted by our strong God. The blood of Jesus washes all scarlet sins white as snow, His power is perfected in our weaknesses (the more we have, the more His power is on display), and He makes our feet like hinds' feet, causing us to finally be able to flit right past our feelings onto the Rock of our faith - Jesus!

So, as you can see - even our failings and feelings can give way to faith, when we remember the truth in our Bibles!
