Day 16- "Deep Like Me"

To buy this book, click here
The following in an excerpt from my friend Rick Bundschuh's brilliant new book, Deep Like Me.  I hope that this will comfort you as you walk this 40 Day Adventure.  We often beat ourselves up for out lack of faith, lack of commitment or failure to grow as quickly as we think we ought to.  Rick writes these words of encouragement.  Soak in them:

You are not alone.  Others of us have those same thoughts and feelings.

You are not that weird.  Our faith is often convoluted, inconsistent and conflicted.

You will make it.  You still have a long way to go, but by hanging on to Jesus, your faith understanding and and wisdom will grow, and yes, it is difficult and even baffling a times.

I would like to tell you that the journey gets easier over time, but that would be a half-truth.  At the very point that you acclimate and finally get used to the new spiritual altitude, God hollers at you to get and get moving again.

Take comfort in knowing you are not alone.  Get charged up knowing that God has more for you. Always.

He Is Risen!
