I was VERY legalistic in the early years of my christian experience. After trying so hard to please God and failing woefully, I was ready to quit when God opened my eyes to the message of grace.
The revelation was electrifying and super liberating. I could never atone for my sins and I could never impress and appease God with my good deeds.

Before I understood what was going on, I was confused and exasperated. Very exasperated. Why would God always say ‘No’ to whatever I wanted to do? If I wanted to go to school, he would say no. If I wanted to learn a skill, he would say no. Everywhere I turned, I was sure to … Continue reading Panic Attack or the voice of God?
