Why can churches be so painfully uninspiring

Why can churches be so painfully uninspiring

Crisis of faith. Heaviness on my heart. More questions than answers at this point on where Healing Eyes goes from here. Unless a miracle happens soon I may be giving up on this mission. I know I didn’t expect a clear direction while here but it would be nice for more assurances than doubt while here. 

A rooster crows. A goose quacks. The minutes drag by and I can only think of escape. 

Went to a catholic mass today that possibly has caused me to want to go back to Agnostic beliefs. It was painfully long and all in Swahili so I had no clue of what they were saying. Then they sang songs over and over. I am human and sadly I complain. Forgive me for my honesty. But if that is religion I want nothing to do with it. Why do you think people turn away from religion … Could it be churches? Don’t kill the messenger here but after this morning I am not a religion fan. I always strive for honesty on this blog even if it sounds harsh. Is this blog too blunt? Should I censor my heart more? 

Yea maybe.  But would it be an interesting read still?

Let’s see what is a positive note I can share? Ah my ringworm is clearing up lol!! 

If you pray and if you don’t consider saying one for me this week to not lose hope on the last legs of this trip. Don’t pray for safety or health instead say this, “Please let sarah find the beauty around her she is supposed to see and show her the path to take.” “Bring the kids to her in hundreds and help her see Billah again.”

Lastly….

“Tell her if she is supposed to keep going in Africa and if not make it crystal clear to her as to what job is next.”

Thanks everyone.

Thank you for your honesty! If only more people would. I have been praying that God make it clear to you in His time.

I find it interesting that you posted this today as we leave for Haiti today hoping God will make His path for us clear!

Please keep in mind Satan is greatly at work also as he doesn’t want you furthering God’s kingdom. Sounds like you are in the midst of spiritual warfare. When you get back to the states I have some books to lend you if you are interested. Studying up on spiritual warfare has been my focus this past winter.

Continued prayer! Keep the hope as God will make things clear in His time. Just take one day at a time and take in God’s beautiful creation in the meantime.

In Christ,

Amy

    Thanks for commenting. I’m still a bit of skeptic on some things related to warfare but I don’t disagree. Good luck in Haiti! How long r u there?

God gives us everything–good and bad — to grow our faith. One uninspiring church service doesn’t make an agnostic! Remember that Paul was blocked from going to Bithynia?
(Acts 16) Not every place you go will be welcoming or the place you should stay, but what you do there is for the glory of Christ. I pray you see the beauty and glory of what you are doing in the rest of your time there. If not, shake the dust from your feet And re read Luke 10. He never promised it would be easy. Prayers for you…

Praying, Sarah! God is with you always. I’m asking Him for the things you mentioned. Looking forward to hearing how He answers! ❤️
