(Un)Comfortable in My Own Sin

I just finished reading (and studying, and discussing) Respectable Sins, by Jerry Bridges with an awesome group of women at church. It was a book I could have finished in a day, and normally would have, but taking a book like this and really digging in for 10 weeks and studying, soaking up the concepts, and feeling convicted, rather than just reading and thinking "How true" or "He's exactly right"....well, it was just an experience I really want to have again. Soon. That, coupled with getting to know other women who are 25 years younger and 25 years older, yet sharing common bonds of being stuck in those sins we tolerate as women, wives, mothers....it was truly a spiritual experience for me.

It's one thing to be comfortable in your own skin (which has taken me many years) but to be comfortable in your own sin, now that's a different story. And one I plan to rewrite. Thank goodness for that Gift of Grace, for it's never too late to write your story.

What's your story about His glory?

That sounds like an wonderful book. I have so many books stacked up waiting to read, I need to get with it. Have you read the Shack yet?
