Magically Delicious

A big misconception amongst Christians, is that when they're saved, their problems/weaknesses/struggles all go away. They've misunderstood/misapplied some scriptures that say that they're a new creature and their old self is gone. That's a whole other lesson.

As they go to bed, the flood of thoughts tell the true story: fears, bad dreams, conflict with others, tears and strife, lying, controlling, insecurities, addictions (food, alcohol, drugs, gambling, shopping/buying, drama, rage, jealousy, lust, porn, etc.) are still there.

This has caused many Christians into hiding and pretending that they're fine. Everything is great when you ask them and their proverbial white knuckles are showing. Now, they've compounded the perceived impasse of being Christian/still struggling and pride that requires the hiding of the truth: you're not ok, and faking/performing for yourself and others, is a LIE.

Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect. (Romans 12:2 NLT)

God will provide insights into broken areas and will provide healing and freedom in those areas: only if you're open, willing, and apply spiritual and practical remedies.

If you're still pretending that you're okay, your issues will not magically disappear, for they are not magically delicious.

Want to work through some things? I can help facilitate through payer, practical applications, and some very honest conversations. All meeting will be 100% confidential between you, me, God and whomever you wish to entrust the info with.

I urge you to not wait another day.
