“Dear God i have obeyed you. Why is everything now so horrible? I thought things are supposed to be fine after obedience. Why has it gotten worse?”
If you can relate to this, welcome to the realm of the mysterious wisdom of God.

So many times we are busy doing christian things. We are doing things for God, doing things in the name of God, doing things around God, things that sound and look Godly…but are any of those things what God has asked us to do?
