Does “Religion” Make Everything Easy?

I realize there are people who tell you that religion can make everything easy and who claim that any time a person prays, he is caught up in light and soars above his problems until they appear small and inconsequential.  But I don’t believe such words!  There are moments in the depths of human suffering when the soaring of ecstasy would be out of touch with reality.

  1. My spiritual struggles over the past two years, and where God has brought me to, is that it is not about religion but instead about the Relationship. I knew that, but I didn’t KNOW it. In coming to that realization in my heart and posting on fb about it, I have lost a dear dear friend in Christ. I am so thankful you posted this and couldn’t agree more with the final lines of the post. There is a reality in this, that many do not understand. One of the things that I posted on FB, that I was lectured/reprimanded about, was “Don’t tell me to wear a skirt when I have no food in my house.” At the time, I literally had grits and eggs in my house. And the people who should have been caring for me knew that and did nothing. I was then lectured on the issues of modesty. My reality was different than theirs, but it crushed my spirit. I have known since the beginning, did not have to learn this, it has always been God’s grace that has allowed me to live this life I’m living. I love you Candy and am so grateful for your posts. Susan
