|Pretty hard thing to say to someone really tormented by [demons]|
But, to those relatively new to the situation—like Robyn Dalton, co-host of Within the Chaos, a BlogTalk radio production—who, at the end of a nearly two-hour long on-air interview asked this very question, it seems perfectly natural:
What does your future look like?
My perfectly natural answer, unscripted, no less:
Terrific. I put Jesus at the helm. I confessed Him; I confess Him in thought, word and deed. I make mistakes; but—I’ll tell you what—He’s the first to know about them, and He’s the first I ask for help with them.
I have no doubt this: Jesus hasn’t put anything in front of me that I cannot overcome—if not by myself, He can do it; and, so, I see my future with hope. Although I am [often] discouraged, I get right back up and keep moving.
I know that [my] hope comes from Christ. Nobody keeps making the same mistakes over and over and over again and has any kind of hope left after awhile; and, yet, I do! And, it is as strong as ever, and keeps getting stronger.
I know that is Christ working in me. I will overcome. And, that is how I see my future—as a conqueror.
I’ve justified my beliefs in numerous posts to this blog, one of the best and most thorough being in The Testimony of a Demoniac. My inevitable salvation, explained.
