Church Supports Faithful Struggling Through Recession

At the risk of sounding like a simple cliché, I think it is worth noting that God is amazing.  Before you amen that statement, let me explain what I mean.

I think we really, really know that God is amazing, but often times live as though He’s out of style, limited in power, and may not really understand our plight.

When we think about who God is, we cognitively understand that He serves as the creator of the world.  In Genesis, we immediately understand, “In the beginning, God created…”  In a very rational way, we understand that God is omniscient, which is to say, that God knows all.  But I wonder if we allow this insight to move into an applied approach in our lives.

There are many believers who, on a day-to-day basis, are living marginal lives.  Marginal in the sense that we are almost liken to being robots.  We have a standard day-to-day routine that calls us to wake up rushing, maintain to-do lists, have canned and shallow responses to interpersonal communication, keeping people at a distance, working on and in jobs that stifle our passions and slowly suck the life out of our divine assignments.  We approach life by existing, but not necessarily thriving and actually living.  We enjoy vacations, but are still overwhelmed, tired, and have no room to breathe.
