One thought on “LASTing Peace “On Ebola and Eating Disorders”

  1. Nice one Abby ! (nice kitchen too).
    You’re right of course in that if we think everything rests on us alone, we are very likely indeed to crumble. Yes, knowing that God loves us unconditionally is the key to everything. He has no reason to make life difficult for us, though he will make use of our failures to teach us and test us. Likewise, we have to stop thinking we are letting God down because (a) we didn’t put him up where he is, (b) our sins are forgiven (if we recognise them and are sorry for them) and (c) he knows us better than we know ourselves. It doesn’t mean we shouldn’t regret or be ashamed of the things we have done wrong (God must laugh or cry at some of my own plans) but I think we must quickly learn and then focus on the right path in future.

    Of course the enemy will keep infecting us with fear and we need to turn our eyes away from it and look at the truth.
    FEAR (False Evidence Appearing Real) often comes up.

    So, I think we have to understand enough about what we are praying for, so that we can pray for it very sincerely, but the actual solution is best left in God’s hands.

    “Yet hope returns when I remember this one thing: The Lord’s unfailing love and mercy still continue, fresh as the morning, as sure as the sunrise. The Lord is all I have, and so in him I put my hope.” (Lamentations 3:21-24 GNT)
