Sometimes I think we get so deep into the fog that we can’t see, or maybe even refuse to see our problems. We lie to ourselves, saying that we are okay so that we don’t have to confront the pain we’ve concealed so well for so long.
A lot of us need to stop pretending that we aren’t racists. (Yes, I really did say that.)
You probably haven’t ever been whipped or imprisoned for your faith. But we all share in weaknesses.
"...you quickly realize what happens is these people were being rascals and didn’t listen to a lot of what Jesus said."
In all honesty, it has always been difficult for me to reconcile the wrathful side of God with His loving side.
"I am merely a paintbrush in the hand of God. When He chooses, I am available for use and for a very specific purpose."
