Friday’s Faith Feature|Resonating Thoughts from I Want God by Lisa Whittle (3/5)

“The reason we do not have more of God is that we make our immediate need for comfort the priority…We want immediate relief from the empty existence we have created for ourselves and will comfort ourselves in any way that will make it possible. We will comfort ourselves with shopping. We will comfort ourselves with food. We will comfort ourselves with sex. We will comfort ourselves with porn. We will comfort ourselves with prescription drugs. We will comfort ourselves with TV. We will comfort ourselves with self-help conferences and keeping our calendar all booked up. Band-Aids that solve nothing and cannot heal our deep hurt. We diminish the depth of the wound, applying topical solutions to deep-down things that need attention. …our desire to comfort ourselves has been the problem all along.”

– Lisa Whittle

A Word from Kim: No truer words have been spoken. Look deeply inside of yourself and figure out where you stand. Ask yourself the hard questions. Have “Band Aid comforts” become your idols? Does your need for a pacifier of relief rule you or can you honestly say that you are all God’s? #IWantGod  untitled
