“I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.” ~ (John 16:33 ESV)
Couple weeks ago I shared about ‘Being Real‘; this issue is very important to me, so I pick it up again.
Currently I am reading the book “Plan B” by pastor Pete Wilson (Cross Point Church/Nashville). I am so thankful that there are pastors out there that don’t mind being honest; sharing their own struggles walking by faith.
Many think that followers of Christ don’t have problems; all is hunky-dory. Well, I think not. We have the same struggles as people who do not believe in Christ and His resurrection. The only difference is that we have communities (churches) that help us go through the rough spots in life. I know I have asked many times “why”; I may not get the answer I like, but I know that at the end all works out for the good…
If you need a little ‘pick-me-up’, I recommend Pete Wilson’s book. It is written with honesty and down to earth talk. Too bad I don’t live in Nashville :)…But then again, I also have pastors that are real and share their struggles. Thank you Lord for surrounding us with pastors that are not afraid of being honest with their congregations.
