This week I’ve been reflecting on a very simple idea. Idols. I’m going to simplify it down because truly it really is simple.
Think of the last time you flew off the handle and felt immense stress, anger, fear, hurt, rage, guilt, needed an escape, avoided reality.
What did you go do?
Whatever your answer is, that’s your idol. QIf you went to God in that emotional state GOOD for you. Because that’s freaking hard. Because anything else you run to can absolutely give you an escape and help you get your mind off what’s bothering you. BUT.. it’s not enough. Golf will never satisfy you deeply in that way, video games will never satisfy you, mindlessly browsing on your phone, mindfully browsing on your phone, alcohol, beating off, cheating, abusing, living in secrecy, overeating, etc. and most of all, doing good will not satisfy you because in Gods economy there’s no way to right your wrongs except to accept that he already did it for you. But that’s why he gives grace at any moment for anyone for any action for any number of occurrences. Today. Now.
Run to Jesus. Test him. Try him out. See how he can hold onto your struggles and take them from you.
Because otherwise, those other things that are your idols will come crashing down and you’ll fall along with them until you aimlessly hope in the next one.


The Count almost  spilled merlot. Or was it Rose? I’m not sure.


End of Iron Pax!
