Kelly said, “I don’t doubt that He *can* do something about anything, but to be honest, that thought no longer moves me to prayer. The question for me has become, ‘*Will* He do something about what matters to me?'”

Kelly shared this thought in a comment in my last post, She Stepped Forward. It is a question that I am ALL too familiar with, and I think that many of us may struggle with (or have struggled with at one time). There was a time on in my life when I asked this tough question, even to the point of questioning God’s very existence.

    This idea about Christians basing their worship on God's performance is something we all need to evaluate in ourselves, so I love that you picked up on that piece Marcus! His love for us is unconditional, and our love for Him should be unconditional as well. Dude, that's just an amazing thought…

    Oh, and thanks to you and LL for the props on the music in the credits! It is one of my favorite songs!
