Tuesday Trench Truth
Thanks for joining me for Tuesday’s Trench Truth.
This past week in our Living Fueled by Hope trench, we talked about
wearing the faith mask, which can inhibit us from being honest with
ourselves, others and God and stunt our ability to dig a bit deeper to
discover any form of despair within us.
What do I mean by that? As Christians, we are taught to behave a
certain way, think a certain way and bury anything negative with prayer.
But that’s not what Jesus Himself did when faced with the most painful,
tragic circumstance: Death on the cross. In the Garden of Gethsemane,
He acknowledged His despair; He faced His despair and then He relied
upon His Father to deliver Him from it.
When we use faith as a band aide to cover what hurst us, to protect it
internally, we become infected.
The verb form of faith is faith-ing…and while it is the cure, there is a bit
of pain involved but oh the freedom of true inner healing.
