Continuing the Journey

I want so much to believe all that God has promised yet still struggle with so much doubt and uncertainty. If someone else is expressing the things that I am inwardly experiencing, I have the "right answers", the "proper Scriptures", and will faithfully pray for them. But for reasons I can't quite comprehend, I continue to feel as if I am the exception to the rule of God's grace, forgiveness, goodness, mercy and love even though I KNOW that is not true. I know that I am not to base my decisions, etc. on 'feelings' but on the Truths from God. But it can be so difficult at times; especially when the feelings come on so strong---even in the midst of sleep.

A friend recommended that I read and truly study a book by Robert McGee titled Search for Significance. I am praying for the Spirit to guide me to the truths in this book that I so desperately need to grasp hold of. I love my God and I know He loves me but the journey continues to be filled with moments of fear and weary and I know that is not what God intends for me in my relationship with Him.


  1. Praying for you, and asking God to gently lead you through this journey.

  2. The ride certainly gets tough!!! But there is no denying that there are a plethora of emotions that we get to experience and the best companion to come along with us ... our Dad.

  3. Stacy,
    I am here with you, I will pray for you . I feel like I am on a similar journey. I too have struggled along, knowing the truth of God's word while being tossed around by my "feelings" they don't always match up.

    I look forward to hearing what you think of the book.

    In Him,

  4. Hmmm...We should live closer and become Bible Study pals...there are those moments when, though I know God and HIS truths...I feel so alone and empty.
    I will be praying for you as you search for truth and hope to hold on to. So glad you are blogging again.
    Blessings, Cindy

  5. I am glad to come the soul restoration of people who are real - expressing real issues. Most of the times i just feel overwhelmed with severe fear, panic,anxiety,heart pain, mental distortion etc. This no joke & most plp just don't get it whenu tel them! This has been my prayer Psalms 119: 28 My soul weeps because of grief;
    Strengthen me according to Your word. Let's stand "2gether" in prayer for restoration.
