The burning…

30 Sep
This post from Jon Acuff, who I saw at Thirst last weekend, really inspired me.
 
Please read it.  Then tell me how you want to burn those barns in your life.
 
What are barns, you might ask?
 
They are the things we run to, instead of turning to Jesus.  These things take our minds off of our situations, dulling the pain, but never fully stripping it away.
 
Things like pride.  Affirmation.  Drugs.  Sex.  Relationships.  Entertainment.  Anything that we could use as an idol in our lives.
 
I am guilty of looking to everything but Christ to solve my problems and heal my heart.
 
So how do we burn these barns in our lives?  And how do we take those first steps toward fully trusting Christ to be the Master of our lives?
