You’ll have to excuse me. Just for now and possibly several months into the future.
You see, I’ve been in a sort of battle, with what feels like everything.
Bad habits create problems and problems tend to justify bad habits. It’s a viscous cycle that I’m perfectly capable of working my way out of, I assure you. If I could only shake myself awake.
“In striving for some peace and understanding in these difficult matters, it is crucial to remember that we are living—and chose to live—in a fallen world where for divine purposes our pursuit of godliness will be tested and tried again and again.
Of greatest assurance in God’s plan is that a Savior was promised, a Redeemer, who through our faith in Him would lift us triumphantly over those tests and trials, even though the cost to do so would be unfathomable for both the Father who sent Him and the Son who came. It is only an appreciation of this divine love that will make our own lesser suffering first bearable, then understandable, and finally redemptive.”
