"I'm so excited to purchase my first home!"
---- "Did you check for asbestos?"
---- "Blood diamond?"
"Who wants a cupcake?"
---- "Who wants obesity?"
We all know and have heard similar voices in our life. Sometimes they come from other people and sometime they come from inside of our own head. These voices exist to rob our joy and force a fear-based view on our world. The saddest thing is that many of us feel like these voices are right.
We shouldn't trust that good things in our life are truly good, because there's probably another shoe that will drop and expose that joy as a mirage. The only thing that we can trust is hardship and misery.
Have you ever considered the safety that the worst case scenario provides? When you live in a place of doubting really good things, then you feel the security of the floor beneath your feet. You can't be surprised by disappointment, because that's what you've been preparing for.
For people exploring faith, this is a message about the taunting voices in our head in our lives. How has God created us to live and navigate the world we're in!
