Nothing is too difficult for the Lord. (Genesis 18:14)
As a Cleveland sports fan, I find myself swaying to and fro on a tire swing of emotions. Before the season begins, there’s a slew of optimism. But deep down I know that optimism…hope…is dangerous, because it could all be for naught. And so the question lies before me:
Should I risk disappointment for the sake of hope?
That question is what keeps us from being “all in” with God. Fully hoping. Fully trusting.
We proclaim God to be trustworthy, yet on the other side of our mouths we give half promises and nominal intentions as a backup plan to shield our hearts.
If God is all we recognize and believe Him to be, how should our lives reflect that?
