This blog is supposed to be, as much as I can, my daily journey through life as a Christian. I hope it to be my thoughts and feelings on life but be as grounded in the Christian message as it can. My intention is not to create a daily readings or bible study guide but to look at my life in terms of a Christian trying to find and follow God's mission using his Life User's Manuel AKA the Bible.

Matthew 10 19-20

And don't you worry about what you'll say or how you'll say it. The right words will be there; the Spirit of your Father will supply the words. - Matthew 10 19-20

Stormy weather of the soul

The wise man in the storm prays to God, not for safety from danger, but for deliverance from fear. It is the storm within which endangers him, not the storm without.
                    (Ralph Waldo Emerson)

This quote is something we should all remember. We need to be watchful for the things within and without that can come between us and God. We need to be careful that we do not let anything stop us being as close to God as it is possible for us to be. The enemy will launch many attacks in many different ways to try and break the bond we have with God. He know he can not stop God from loving us, but he can have a good shot at driving us away from God. We need to pray always and ask him to help us with that which threatens to get in the way. Once the storms within are calmed, the ones without will seem so much smaller.
