365 Things I Believe: Clinging to Idols

Am I clinging to idols? If you look up a definition idols are referred to as objects of excessive devotion.

So are there idols in my life? In yours? Are their things in your life keeping you from that relationship with God?

In reality, we all have idols. We all have things that take us away from worshipping and following the one true God. What we have to decide is what we’re going to do about them.

I believe this.

Lord Jesus, I long to be perfectly whole,
I want Thee forever to live in my soul;
Break down every idol, cast out every foe;
Now wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
~ James Nicholson

365 Things I Believe is a revisioning of a year long web project. I initially launched the blog 365 Things I Believe because I think there are important things I have to say. There are eternal truths that are non-debatable, although I realize they’re not universally accepted.

So for a year I did a daily post of one thing I believe to be an indisputable truth. I’m relaunching here at The Write Side of My Brain and will continue through the next year to re-post (mostly) from the original project.

This time graphics and commentary are included. You can buy today’s print here. And, by the end of a year, if not sooner, you’ll be able to purchase the entire series in ebook format.
