If Only

Sometimes I’m left feeling annoyed after reading the Bible.

This can be for several reasons, such as lack of understanding or fear, anger, sadness about the content, etc.

On this occasion, though, it was because I was frantically looking for something I thought it said in the Bible, which backs up my point of view on something I’m struggling with at the moment.

I was sorely disappointed because what I actually discovered is that it doesn’t say what I wanted but rather the exact opposite.  I’m now angry, upset and confused because I have to change what I believe about something that I have held deer.

If only it said what I thought and hoped it said I wouldn’t have to face myself and let something go.

But I’ve promised to follow Jesus, so I’m committed to adjusting my perspective in line with His. It’s a long, and sometimes painful process of renewal and healing. But I reckon it’s worth it.
