Is my life pleasing to God? This question has been passing through my mind more & more lately. I’m trying to determine what is at the source of this question. Is it a guilt-based question or one based out of simply a desire to please God?
As a believer & as a former porn addict, I sometimes feel a tension in my life between where I am & perhaps where I should be. I know that recovery is a process. And I know that as a Christian, I’m still on a journey of sanctification that will most likely take the rest of my life.
If you’re still reading this post, then you can probably tell I am a deep thinker. Perhaps I think a little too deeply. But I know that is how I was created by God. What am I trying to say in this post? I think 2 things that come to mind that is important to remember:
1. The degree that I (we) spend time (even moment by moment throughout the day) with our Creator determines the course & the momentum of our healing.
2. Sanctification & healing is a process that takes place over the course of a life time.
Perhaps these aren’t necessarily profound things to read, but as a believer, I needed to write them today. To remember them & to reflect on them. The truth is that God loves me & wants to be the One who fulfills my life. I believe with each wise choice & action we take, God smiles upon us. And with each unwise, foolish choice we make, God’s faithful love continues to stir us back on track to where we need to be.
