Isn’t it easy to grab hold of a verse and try to stick it onto our souls like a bandaid? As if one quick fix and the bleeding of our hearts will stop. Yet bandaids will not cure the troubles of our souls, any more than pulling a single verse out of context will fix our brokenness.Verses will never be bandaids, but believing opens our hearts for the power of God to strengthen and calm.
Way down deep, where pain and disappointment are packed up tight, do you believe God is good?
One of the challenges of being human is our struggle to hold onto a firm concept of God that strengthens our soul and provides a spiritual foundation for our lives.
