(This excerpt is from Mere Christianity by CS Lewis.)
The past couple of weeks, we've been doing a series in youth group called AMP'd. This Wednesday, JJ talked about how it's so easy to make God background music and to reverb ourselves. Lately, I've kind of put God on the back burner. I've become content with where I am. Contentment is my worst enemy. I thought this was how God wanted me to be - where I was spiritually. I mean, I know that I should be consistent and constantly growing, but it's another thing to actually act it out. I read this quote today on someone else's blog and decided I would write on it.
God doesn't ever want us to stay in the same place. Just when we think God has us where he wants us, he starts taking away walls, putting new doors in, adding on other rooms or floors, changing the carpet; but the foundation remains the same.
Even if it feels like God isn't doing something in my life, he is. I've tried to hear me through the reverb instead of trying to hear God.
I feel like I've just sort of rambled. Sorry for the disorganization.
peace, love, and favorite authors.
