Expecting the worst….

Have you ever been reading along in the Bible and came along a verse that changes everything?  One that suddenly jumps out and lets you see that you have had all the dials set wrong, the controls are in need of an adjustment…

1 Peter 1

Since Jesus went through everything you’re going through and more, learn to think like him. Think of your sufferings as a weaning from that old sinful habit of always expecting to get your own way. 

Wait!  Hold the phone!   Did Peter really just say that expecting to get your own way is actually a sinful habit?  Are we really then to expect to not get our own way, to expect first that things are to go wrong?  Is that what learning to think like Him is?    I don’t know about you but this one hits me from an angle I did not expect.  There is a lot to learn from this one.

    Hey Man,
    That is good stuff. It brought tears to my eyes just to see your kids on the sidebar right there. We miss you guys and know that you are walking where God has you. Thank you for continuing to put the word out>
