Contradictions?

Pass or Fail, it’s all part of the sanctification process

In preparing for work this morning, I thought these random thoughts worthy of sharing:

  • If I tell you to have faith but I walk by sightcontradiction
  • If I talk about victory and but live defeatedcontradiction
  • If I say trust God but seek Man as my source … contradiction
  • If I sing praises unto God but am ungratefulcontradiction
  • If they need Jesus but I never share the gospelcontradiction
  • If I cry woe is me but never seek the Comfortercontradiction
  • If I write about joy but my attitude is wretchedcontradiction
  • If Christ is head of my life but my flesh reignscontradiction
  • If I love Jesus but hate any person for any reason … contradiction
  • If I have a church home but seldom attend & supportcontradiction
  • If God’s Word is true but I agree with the world’s viewcontradiction
  • If I’m God’s child but He has no authority in my lifecontradiction
  • If I judge people’s sin and believe I’m righteouscontradiction

From the Outside (A Poem)

Leave judgment where it belongs – in God’s hands

Copyright © Wanda Murry, August 7, 2018

It’s been a while since I shared a poem from my latest book, Emotionally Charged (Amazon, 2016)This poem came to mind as I listened to the words from King & Country’s “God Only Knows” official music video (below).  It made me think of the countless young women and young men who are wandering through life — hopeless, wounded, afraid, and ready to give up on life.

I can so relate to those feelings.  As I’ve mentioned before, I personally dealt with suicidal thoughts as a teen and young adult.  I know what it’s like to feel so alone and/or hurt that you don’t think life is worth living. God brought me back from the brink many, many times!  God wants to impart His love to the lost and the hurting; He just needs them to reach out and take hold of His hand.

If you have an experience or encouraging word you can share with those who will read this post, please do.  Someone may need to hear your testimony to starve off the hopelessness nipping at their heart.

Enjoy the Poem and the Song below.
