Walking With a Limp
By Brad Bell
When asked about your relationship with God, you say, “Fine. Good.” But you have no idea. You can count up how many times you’ve said, “Oh crap,” or thought, God, I hope I don’t do something stupid today. You try to be good. And fail. You try harder to be good. And fail. Eventually, you don’t try so hard, don’t live so well, and just show up on Sunday out of obligation, bored to death, and fake it.
Wrestling With God Is No Ordinary Bar Fight.
The mess of life gets deeper and dirtier, and stuck is where you are – trying to become more like Christ – but never getting there. You’re not growing or maturing in your faith, and you’re pretty sure it’s your own fault. The answer is not to read more, and pray more, and serve more, and wait to grow more spiritually. So what is the answer? Where do you start?
Once far from the Lord and focused on things that stimulated all sorts of nonsense, Brad was willfully broken and broken and broken. After years of a repetitive pattern of spiritual failure, the self-proclaimed hairy-back-knuckle-dragger, finds it’s better to live life walking with a limp with God than to do life whole and on your own.
There was a way out for him, and there is a way out for you.
