Psalm 139: 17-24
Living in troubled times make each of us think about faith issues and how we process information, then walk consistently with the Lord. Sometimes it feels like our faith life is not just out of sync with, but somehow, out of touch with modern life.
How can the world seem to be going so fast the other direction?
We face issues like the breakdown of the family, assisted suicide, LGBTQ, addictions, government policies and economics that put us on a course we are opposed to.
So many things that distract or weigh us down and attack or put pressure on our faith lives.
Does our faith shape our world view or is our spiritual walk a side bar that doesn’t mix with real life?
