After reading through this week’s reading assignment , I’ve come away feeling convicted; not condemned but definitely convicted. One of the things mentioned in N.T. Wright’s Simply Christian, is that believing or feeling is not the same as doing. Ouch!
Over the last several years of my life, I’m come to realize that some times I feel strong in my walk with Christ and other times I feel weak. During the peaks of my walk with the Lord, I’ve felt that I could take on any obstacle and face any trial. While in the valleys, I’ve quite honestly felt like nothing I did or would ever do would make any difference. Throughout the peaks and valleys, I’ve come to believe that during the times of strength, I should sieze every opportunity to establish roots that will anchor me through the valleys. It is for this reason that I write this now; to keep a record of the peaks and valleys and to document roots which will keep me grounded in the next storm.
