1st Grade

Well, today was THE PITS!! I was in a very dark mood; sick of being sick; tired of being tired; OVER IT. Ever been like that? (I see that nodding head). I was absolutely questioning God...calling Him into account and angry that I "had" to suffer. These attitudes prove that I am still a first grade Christian. Chronologically, I'm a 48 year old Christian, but today I behaved like a 1st grader. You see, a truly mature Christian suffers patiently, trusting the Lord's wisdom and love. The Apostle Paul calls it "enduring hardness". One day, when I graduate from the university of Christian life, I will automatically trust Him and doubts will end. After all, you never question one you totally trust. I'm sad to say that I still have far to go in that area...but I intend to get there. What about you? What grade are you in?

Hang in there.


  1. Some days I'm UNDER the school:)

  2. I'm in the Elementary years for sure! I think I will only graduate when I reach the pearly gates! I so wish I could just trust God about everything automatically-(definition:acting or done spontaneously or unconsciously) wouldn't that be great if we could spontaneously or even unconsciously always TRUST him! Talk about being graduated! He's not finished with us yet PTL
