Have you ever struggled with navigating life’s storms? If so, you are not alone. A better question is, “Do you know how to get through the storms?” Most of our Sunday morning messages are glamorized by “perfect” scenarios.
For the past few years, I have experienced challenges with anxiety. Simple tasks that I know I can complete are too overwhelming to finish well. Thoughts of “failing” are constant; even though I realize it is negative self-talk.
Sunday morning is like the super bowl. The major players are in position and the crowd is ecstatic. Those who are not as enthusiastic as others still attend. If you are feeling down, there are cheerleaders to inspire you. If you feel defeated, there are coaches to remind you of the game plan.
These are good things; however, I had a hidden issue I was unaware of. I worshipped my knowledge of God. I felt that Sunday school made me an expert on Him. I felt that my private time with God made me stand out as a star. I felt doing things for God such as volunteering, praying, and reading my Bible made me superior. I had no clue that focusing on “my efforts” to build a relationship with God was self-serving.
