Don’t Pretend

May 16, 2018

“Don’t pretend everything is to your liking when it’s not. Face the hard truth that God may allow terrible suffering in the lives of people He loves for at least two reasons. One, to prod us into waiting eagerly with grateful anticipation for the trouble-free life we will forever enjoy in heaven, with Jesus. Two, to discover the Spirit’s power to love like Jesus in any circumstances of life or condition of soul and to thus tell God’s story of amazing grace.”

Dr. Larry Crabb, When God’s Ways Make No Sense, Coming Soon!! To be released in July, 2018!

Questions for Reflection:
• What parts of your life have you stopped talking to God about because of what He’s allowed to occur?
• Are you silent because you’re waiting for words to express your heart to Him or because you’re withholding your heart from Him?
• How does the promise of eternal joy and of a growing present freedom to love deeply impact your silence?
• Take some time to offer to God the truth about those silent places in your life and to wait for Him to speak into them.
