A Facebook friend recently announced, “I no longer know if I believe in God.” He/she is now publicly and openly debating the existence of God and Jesus in what they feel to be a highly intelligent and logical way. I can’t even think of the words to say; all I feel is utter sadness for this person. To lose hope in the only hope. Jesus is what keeps me going, what keeps me moving and breathing and hoping and living. And I can’t explain it logically to this person; I just know it. So I’m praying for him/her. Because Jesus is strong enough, big enough, loving enough to bring them back to himself. Please join me in praying, for this person and all the others who need that hope, those answers.
“When people say, you know, ‘Good teacher,’ ‘Prophet,’ ‘Really nice guy’….this is not how Jesus thought of Himself. So you’re left with a challenge in that, which is either Jesus was who He said he was or a complete and utter nut case. You have to make a choice on that.” ~Bono
When it comes to old castles, our family likes them less perfect, and more, well, imperfect. The perfect castles tend to come complete with tour guides and the admission cost that tends to come with them. (Although I’m mixed on that…those admission costs could help in keeping these wonderful old castles intact for another generation to enjoy.) But we love to explore these wonderful rocks on our own sometimes, and just imagine. 🙂 Don’t miss the beauty in the imperfect. Blessings, Lisa
