woah. this one is good. that's why i listed it first, because you have to read it immediately. oh, and it's about sex. called "to love their husbands" by layla at you are my (he)art.
and then we have jon acuff's "the god in our heads". i think we all get caught up here sometimes. that somehow we believe serving God is always and only going to hard and horrible and exactly what we've always dreaded.
it reminded me of this post i wrote [originally as a guest post for leslie], wondering why i do things i shouldn't, when i know better and when i should have it figured out by now... but really it's all about more of Him who is the giver of all fruit: patience, kindness, goodness, self-control. we can't do it without Him but we think we should be able to, for some reason.
