faith is easy.


A fellow blogger that I appreciate reading, graciously responded to an inquiry I had for him. When asked why he would even bother attending church, he responded this way: http://theunwelcomeguest.blogspot.com/2009/07/but-for-my-people-to-pursue.html. Please take the opportunity to read his post.


Now, my thoughts.


do you struggle?


or is faith easy for you?


does something in you desire to believe?


or is it merely out of obligation or good intention?


It seems as though The Unwelcome Guest wrestles more deeply than the majority of people warming pews or stackable chairs or couches. But that's just my take.


What do you think?

Faith? The thing that requires me to actively think outside of myself, question logic, live selflessly, and be able to hear a faint voice in a loud world... Faith is HARD. I gets harder every day. I struggle.

"To live selflessly, and be able to hear a faint voice in a loud world..."

What a beautiful statement, Ryan. The epitome of faith: living selflessly, and searching for that still, silent voice. It's out there, and it's elusive, but when you hear it... peace.
