Born again breech

Reaching for the invisible God by Philip Yancey

“Oh God, I don’t love you, I don’t even want to love you, but i want to want to love you!”
Teresa of Avila

The words of a saint…

Surely there is hope for me yet!
Some quotes from the first chapter that i identify with.

I wonder if in the born-again metaphor i was born breech.
What is a relationship with God supposed to look like anyway? We know what to expect from other relationships in life, with parents, pastros, neighbours. What can we count on God for?
When will i just get it? When will things click? What’s wrong with me?
I have faith but it doesn’t seem to apply.
How do i act as if God is ailve?
How does my life as a christian differ fom a moral non-christians life?

Can’t belive i’m still asking the same questions i asked when i was 17. At this rate when i’m about 312 years old i may have some semblance of an anwer.
