Feeling Good about Feeling Bad Comments by Francesca Penty
Out of my friends who don’t go to a church but have a faith, most of them say they don’t have time to go but I have also had them say they won’t go because they know they’d cry if they did.
I remember when I first went to the Rock some years back how it gave me a feeling of foreboding after a couple of weeks, (sorry Anth!). Part of me wanted to not go back as I felt there was going to be a lot of stuff to face if I did continue. I did stay and it was rough facing up to some of the things about myself I’d rather pretend weren’t there. I wish I’d heard this message then. I can wholeheartedly say that the change that comes from feeling bad is so worth the aggravation and that hiding just prolongs the agony. The great thing about being in Gods family is that when you’re in the thick of it and can’t see it you’ve got others to encourage you and to remind you where you’ve come from.
