The real problem of the Christian life...

Read this today and it is so true so wanted to share!

"The real problem of the Christian life comes where people do not usually look for it. It comes the very moment you wake up each morning. All your wishes and hopes for the day rush at you like wild animals. And the first job each morning consists simply in shoving them all back; in listening to that other voice, taking that other point of view, letting that other larger, stronger, quieter life come flowing in. And so on, all day. Standing back from all your natural fussing and frettings; coming in out of the wind."

C.S. Lewis


  1. So true, things of the world do rush in and the quietness of God's voice is not heard, those promptings to pray and give it all to Him. Just this morning when I got up I sat on the side of my bed and just had to deal with those very things that instill anxiety inside. Peace came as I gave it all into His hands.

    Thanks for sharing this.

  2. Ya its so tough sometimes! But we have to remember the truth and like you said listen for the voice of love speaking quietly behind all the din of the world!
