Will We Find God?

March 26, 2015

“We will not find God by detaching ourselves from the ugly, painful realities of the world around us or within us. When we refuse to own all that is happening in our lives, when we never ‘tell our stories’ to one another, our pursuit of God is reduced to an organized set of activities energized only by the proud passion of discipline.”

Dr. Larry Crabb, Finding God, Pages 161-162

Questions for Reflection:
• In what ways have you been avoiding rather than engaging the pain in your own heart or in the lives of others lately?
• What do you fear might happen if you stopped trying to manage your brokenness or that of another?
• Take some time today to sit quietly before the Lord and tell Him your heart’s true story, where you are at this moment.
• Invite Him to meet you where you are now, not where you wish you were, and ask Him to give you a clearer vision of Who He is.
