Disorganized

We resumed Bible study Wednesday morning, studying surrender with Nancy Leigh Demoss’s book of the same name. In the introduction, Demoss makes the following statement:

Many Christians live perpetually disorganized lives because they have never realized (and therefore are not living out) the implications of their initial surrender to Christ.

Or, at least that’s how I saw it. I read it like four or five times before I realized this is what she actually said:

Many Christians live perpetually discouraged defeated lives because they have never realized (and therefore are not living out) the implications of their initial surrender to Christ.

Free association aside, I’m thinking either way, there’s some truth there. Certainly my discouragement and sense of defeat could indicate a lack of surrender (Nancy says so!), but my disorganization? Hmmmm, food for thought there…

  1. Interesting thought!!! I can see the link because God will order our steps with regard to the disorganization, but I am not sure that means my disorganized desk 🙂

  2. As much as I hate to admit it, there is definitely truth in that statement. For me, there is more truth than I would like to acknowledge! Definitely something to think long and hard about…
