Emotionally Healthy Spirituality - 2
God is our 'Sat-Nav' for our journey through life.
It's difficult because there's 'walls' that we will face that it may seem that where is God in all of this?!
We question God and everything about the the situation.
How do you deal with being stuck at a wall?
Forrest Gump Method - fatalistic way of looking a life; "Life is like a box of Chocolates..you never know what you're going to get.."
Misquoted Authorised Method - thinking that because we're Christians, all will be well.
It becomes a Battle of Wills between God's will and our will.
Do we TRUST GOD implicitly?!
7 Spiritual Imperfections - God wants to purge
Pride (the bad kind) judgemental
Avarice - Greed- being discontent with your spiritual experience
Luxury- Using God for your own pleasures about the good feelings about God rather than God himself
Wrath - easily irritated
Gluttony - loving the Christian life unless we deny ourselves
Envy - being unhappy when others do well
Sloth - Avoiding the path God wants for us
How do we get through the wall?
Be AWARE. Know ourselves HONESTLY
ACKNOWLEDGE - the 'wall'
ACCEPT - God's love
WAIT- on the LORD
