“I have thanked God for my situation, I have raged at Him, I have pleaded with Him, I have refused to speak to Him.
There are times where I feel contentment, and other times where I feel an unbearable sadness.
There are times where I know the closeness of His spirit, and other times where I doubt His existence.
The choice to deny myself and the world, and follow Christ is not a clear big one-off act, but an ongoing, relentless discipline. (Which I fail at repeatedly.)
I need to hear again and again the truth that His grace is sufficient. I am Peter who denies my friend, I am resentful Martha, I am Mary who hears her Lord when she thought it was just the gardener.”
