The Agony of Deconstructing Your Beliefs

"The Agony of Deconstructing Your Beliefs" cartoon by nakedpastor David Hayward

Cartoon Description: A woman lies in bed. Her main though bubble says, "My beliefs are deconstructing!" But this main though bubble is having its own thought bubbles, like, "Once you reject Christ you can never go back." "The fool has said in her heart there is no God." "Definitely going to Hell now!" "You're being so selfish." "Deconstructing is just a fancy word for backsliding." "No, you're betraying God." "How dare you question God." "Why are you turning away from the Lord?"

Been there? Done that?

I have.

But I promise... it passes.

Now... there may be people outside of your head who will continue to think and maybe even dare to say these things.

But don't let them in!

You're fine. You're okay. You're perfect.

Deconstruction is not a nasty phase. It's a new way of being. A new way of life.

Embrace it. Enjoy it. Love it.

Because this is you being you and thinking your own thoughts.

Finally!

    Feels like I am being consumed by my deconstruction and it feels like it’s taking forever to come through.
