So I was reading some prayers I had written over two years ago, and it was pretty interesting.
I am amazed at how much our circumstances have changed. I am praying now about very different situations than I was two years ago. I had been praying for specific people in our previous church and for the budding dream of Vintage. Now, I am praying for specific people in our current church in the dawning dream of Vintage. Things have really changed.
But I was amazed even more by how I haven't changed much. I am still confessing the same sins, still expressing the same doubts, still offering up the same cliches, still struggling with the same things.
I am not sure if I found this exercise comforting or disconcerting. Maybe both.
