  1. I hope this blesses you all as much as it blessed me!

      A blessing indeed!
      Pastor Glenn’s posts offered much-needed affirmation in some areas of faith which have taken a real beating over the past year or so.
      Seeing and hating my sinfulness hasn’t been too difficult…yet my trust in the truth that God forgives freely and permanently was receiving constant interference from a nasty little voice which kept whispering that I hadn’t truly been repentant before because I recently committed another sin…or I’d used up my allotment of God’s patience…or that if I was a real believer, I’d have a huge pile of “holy living fruit” to prove it.

      Allowing such thoughts to take root in any way is so destructive. I was spending less and less time in the Word because all I seemed to see was condemnation for being a sinner; and was receiving little encouragement to simply learn from my error and move on.

      Thank you for the timely post.

  2. Oh Heather my heart goes out to you. The past few months I and a few very dear Christian friends have been suffering exactly the same way! So many of us avoid Bible study for stretches of time for the very same reason…that is why my blogging posts have been so sparse and sporadic. Take heart Heather! Be of good courage!

    Love,
    Theresa

    Hi Theresa! I remember when I used to think that too, that surely I’d used up all God’s patience. Wow, it feels so good to say that I’ve come such a long way since then–not perfect by any stretch of the imagination, but so much more secure in WHO HE IS, that He doesn’t have moods like I do–impatient, critical, etc. He’s just glad I keep coming to Him for anything and everything, and He’s always full of loving patience and amazing grace for me. Sometimes when He hugs me, it’s like He’s saying that He thought I’d never get things straight in my mind about Him–but of course He wouldn’t say that, because He knew it was just a matter of time. Especially for those He has already called to Him, He’s got all kinds of time–He knows what we’re made of, He knows what things have caused us to be “mixed up”, or slow to believe and trust. We’re good.

    Sorry to talk so much! God bless you and your family today, Sister! love, sis Caddo

    • Ooooh, I like this:

      “…not perfect by any stretch of the imagination, but so much more secure in WHO HE IS, that He doesn’t have moods like I do–impatient, critical, etc. He’s just glad I keep coming to Him for anything and everything, and He’s always full of loving patience and amazing grace for me. ”

      He has searched and known us and loved us with an unfailing love!

      Love,
