Let’s be honest, we all struggle with something. And sometimes, we’d like to know just what the Bible says about it. You know, find out if our struggle is even worth struggling with in the first place.
Or maybe we talk ourselves into something we know we shouldn’t do.
So like, my doctor told me I need to stop drinking caffeine. And I did (honest). But then I had a cola the other day and my migraine went away.
For the first time in a year.
Let that sink in for a minute.Have you ever convinced yourself it was okay to do something you knew was wrong? Click To Tweet
I’ve had these migraines for going on two full years now, so to be migraine free was amazing.
Do you think it mattered to me that I only stopped drinking caffeine three months ago?
Of course not.
So What Did I Do?
I started drinking coffee every morning and went to the store and bought a pack of soda.
I had some really good mornings that week, yet in the back of my mind was this voice nagging me that what I was doing was wrong.
Have you ever been there?
Maybe it wasn’t defying the doctor’s orders, maybe it was doing something your husband didn’t want you to do?
(Okay, my husband wasn’t happy I wasn’t listening to the doctor either. And I know what the Bible says about that…)
What Does The Bible Say About…
I remember being in High School and trying to figure out just what the Bible did say about certain things though. Were you ever that way?
Did you ever try to figure out where the line was? Or why Christian adults said certain things were wrong, even though you couldn’t find the chapter and verse?
This Week’s Featured Post
That’s what I was transported back to this past week when I read Barbara’s post on Stray Thoughts. But it wasn’t just about high school kids trying to toe the line. I was there myself this past week with cola drinking rebellious self.
So I had to wonder, maybe it’s more of a struggle than I realized…
“So whoever knows the right thing to do and fails to do it, for him it is sin. ” ~ James 4:17
