New Shoes

I wrote this 5 years ago on my secret blog.  I found it interesting…

Questioning your faith really is exhausting work.  I don’t recommend it at all.  It’s like taking a trip around the world with no plan.  Where will I stay?  What will I see?  Who will I meet?  How long will it take?  And what will home look like when I get back?

A couple of days ago I was riding in the car with one of my kids.  We were flipping through the radio stations when we hit the local christian station.  My kid commented that the song was a favorite so we listened to it.  I don’t remember what song it was, but I do remember how it made me feel.  Comfortable.  Familiar.  Like putting on a favorite pair of old shoes.  Then I wondered why in the hell I am questioning if I feel that way about my faith.  I guess when we wear out our old shoes it’s time to acquire a new pair no matter how much we hate to do it.  So maybe I’m searching for an updated model of the same timeless, classic style.  Or maybe I need to go with something completely different.  

Yeah, I don’t recommend this.  I’m sure when I’m done, if I ever get done, I will look back and be thankful for the trip I had to take.  But right now it sure would be easier to just put on that old pair of shoes take a walk around the block.


Just in case you were wondering…I went with an updated model of the same timeless classic style, but with a twist.
