Tired of it all

I recently received an email from a blog reader who expressed that they are just sick and tired of all of the daily Christian “stuff”.  You know, the email thought for the day, the scripture for the day, the daily devotional, the story that was sent by a well meaning friend to all 500 people on his email chain. 

The writer had become annoyed by the little daily snippets that are supposed to solve all your problems.  They weren’t solving his.

 Many times I have felt this way too, and I wonder if many of you have as well.  I have some issue or some feeling or some concern and it is troubling me.  I keep getting suggestions from people.  An email, a devotional, a book to read, but none of the medicine is working.  So I feel guilty, as if I were not a good Christian, because all of this stuff does not cure me.

 Well, I would just like to say that you don’t have to read everything that comes your way to be a good Christian.  Heck, some good Christians don’t even know how to read!  What if we just relaxed and stopped trying to fix everything.  Somethings in life are just not that easy to fix. 

Sometimes it is perfectly fine to bear your cross and lean into your Savior.  The goal of the Christian life is not to become problem free, but to live with our Savior.

And when we get that part figured out, it is a beautiful day in God’s world, for we have begun to see the good.
