Hi all. I need your help. I love Jesus with all my heart... and yet... my faith has become bland, boring... something that just doesn't seem REAL anymore. I'm tired of it, and I've told God so. Moses once told God to give meat to the Isrealites (basically to stop them from whining to him) or to kill him. One or the other - to change the situation he was in. I'm not as bold as Moses. I'm afraid that where I am is a result of ME, not of God's doing. I'm pretty sure that, because God listens to AND answers prayers... I'd be dead by morning. He'd be grieved, but my prayer would be answered.
However... I WANT that faith again. I want to live a life with that kind of extreme faith. The kind of naked faith that David showed when he said, "SEARCH my heart. See if there is ANY wrong thing in me." That's why I put both Extreme and Naked in my title... Because I need your help to get there.
Whenever I get bored with something, I have to change things up a bit. At work, if I'm bored, I have to SEARCH OUT new challenges, new projects... I think it's spilling over into my faith. So I'm going to make a naked faith list. A list of things that change things up a bit, add a bit of "tabasco" as Glen called it. I'll update this list often, I hope. And perhaps I'll share what worked... and what didn't. Don't be offended if I don't take your idea. Perhaps someone else out there in cyberland will. I really appreciate the help, everyone. We're not a BODY if we don't help each other.
Little Toe OUT.
