Getting Practical

Every day everyone faces mountains.  The landlord is threatening eviction again because you have to choose between food and rent.  A co-worker has a grudge against you, and has made it his or her personal responsibility to make your job miserable.  Another day, another speeding ticket.  Your wife is slowly dying of cancer.  Some mountains are bigger than others; some only seem bigger.

How do we handle these difficult, tragic, or just plain annoying situations?  Some people try to climb over them, making every effort to face and conquer them alone only to fall or find, if they reach the top, that they left everyone they know and love behind.  Some try to dig under them, and end up sinking lower and lower under the weight of depression and despair.  Some try to go around them, thinking avoidance and detachment are the best policies.  But, Jesus said that with enough faith we could move mountains.

Wouldn’t it be great to move mountains rather than letting them move you?  The Bible gives us principles that we can make practical in our lives; principles that turn mountains into stepping stones, and stepping stones into a path to comfort, peace, joy, and eternal life.  This is what Christianity is all about: Christ, who is the Way, the Truth, and the Life.

We don’t have to live in fear of what will happen next if we know how God wants us to use trials.  My purpose for this blog is to explore God’s will for our everyday lives.  I plan to write about many issues facing Christians todya, from apologetics to personal holiness.  I hope that it will benefit you as much as, I am sure, it will benefit me.
