deep faith


We lose faith when we become preoccupied with our performance. When we begin to measure our faith by our “perfect moral record”, belief leaves our hearts. Burned out by the exhaustion of our human efforts, we will soon leave the church, and in time, leave God as well.

Somehow, several spiritually shrewd and inspiring Christians convinced me to stop feeling frustrated and to start learning, so I began to ask a lot of questions. One of these questions started a life-altering conversation with my conference roommate. I told him I was having difficulty with my Quiet Times – the early morning period of reflection between God and me.
