Light at the End of the Tunnel

How much light is at the end of your tunnel?
We spend so much time out of our days living in our pain. In high school  I was so consumed with trying to be better, trying to be enough and trying to be the best and somehow I never seem to be better or enough or the best. Life seemed hopeless. When we look at our lives in the future the tunnel ahead of us seems dark and claustrophobic. How much light do you see at the end of your tunnel?

Can't Force the Force

There are many things in life we would like control of! Let's face it... you would likely not be reading this article if you didn't in some way try and control your life.

Yet, the more we try to have the power to control the more we realize just how lacking we really are. Soon our utter powerlessness to control our circumstances in life become so overwhelming.

Paul David Tripp says this; "The fact that I am not in control should not make me think that my world is out of control." 

So, Are you ready to give up what little power you believe you have for the Power that is in control no matter how little you believe?

Denial

"Denial is not just a river in Egypt and those who sail it are the captains of their own helm."
~George L.

A life of denial is more dangerous than the things we actually struggle with. If admitting is the first step of recovery than denial is the first stage of our hurts, habits, and hang-ups. Think of denial like cancer, if you catch it early it can be treated and prevented from returning, but if not, detriment is sure to ensue. So, why is denial so dangerous and how does it sneak up on us before we see it for what it is?
