Editing is such a tedious process and takes soooo much time. It's much like the way God changes us. The Big glaring mistakes are easy to see and God changes them easily and quickly, but the small stuff, the stuff hidden from view , not so easy. That is especially true when we want to hang on to them or don't think it's such a big issue.
That brings me to a pet peeve of mine. Why is it that the world thinks just cause your a Christ follower now you are a perfect being who does no wrong? Why is it that they think that God waves a magic wand over our lives and everything is perfect?
I'll tell you why.
The enemy of our souls wants the world to believe this so when we mess up or when our lives look like theirs they can say," see he is no better than me, why should I believe in God." They are afraid that should they become believers they will have to "give up" things they want. What they don't see is that we don't give our desires up, our desires change, and as a result we live happier and more at peace with ourselves.
The really cool thing about following Christ is when I do find something in my life that is not on par with what God wants, (and today I want what He wants), He provides the power to change.
The next best thing is when my life is a mess, I can cry, get mad even be in fear and I can take it to Him and He provides the peace and understanding that I need to muddle through my problems with confidence .
Following Christ means to me to have a relationship with the Creator of our souls and this world. I can have this relationship because I have been freed from the guilt and shame my wrongful behavior has caused, the very thing that kept me from approaching the Creator and having relationship with Him.
When I use the Ten Commandments as a guide to living in a Christ like manner, (holiness), I am able to root out problems before they become issues in my life and that is the premiss of my book.
