Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along, so I thought I would play for fun! Just do the following:
- Grab your current read
- Open to a random page
- Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
- BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
- Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
Do you want to know the primary reason that I, personally, have struggled with spiritual boredom? Because I have been worshiping a god I created, one I styled to be who I needed him to be. A god I can control? That's not God at all!
I had expectations of who He should be. I expected Him to answer my prayers in my way. I expected Him to make life easy for me. I expected Him to help me feel His presence all the time. I expected Him to prevent all my family members and friends from dying, give me A's on all my tests, and hang a green arrow in the clouds pointing to the college I should go to and the job I should take. I was believing in a god that I created. And when we do that then of course we will be bored with God!
