The Cure is Trusting God

October 2, 2012

In Part One of this series, I began a review of The Cure: What If God Isn’t Who You Think He Is And Neither Are You by Bill Thrall, Bruce McNicol, and John S. Lynch. We followed the pilgrim down the road of “pleasing God to the Room of Good Intentions“.

Finding both frustration and failure in this room, the traveler returns to the fork in the road; this time journeying down the path marked “Trusting God.”

As the wanderer approaches the building this path leads to, he sees the banner across the doorway proclaiming, “Living Out of Who God Says I Am.” He comes upon the door of “Humility” and collapses in exhaustion, exclaiming:

“I’m so tired, I can’t do it. Help me…I’ve fought so hard to impress You, and none of it did. Now I’m weary, empty and alone. I’m tired of performing. I’m tired of pretending I can please You by any amount of effort. Help me God!”
