STRT TRBL was born out of my animosity towards myself and everyone around me. I took a long hard look at the world and found that everyone is straight terrible, myself included, and there is nothing you or I could ever do to change or fix it. The weight of it hit me pretty hard and I grew very despondent.
A couple months later I was in a rough place mentally and spiritually. I was growing weary and so I decided I would come before the Lord, air out my dirty laundry and sit in silence until he spoke. He answered me with a statement and then a question.
'you are right' and 'What do you think the Cross of Christ was for?'
My answer went something like this. “I am such a freaking idiot!”
STRT TRBL took on a whole new purpose from that moment.
'For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. For one will scarcely die for a righteous person—though perhaps for a good person one would dare even to die— but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.’ Romans 5:6-8
I was killing myself over something that He had already taken care of.
WE ARE ALL STRT TRBL! But He made a way……
We want you to get to know us. STRT TRBL has a lot of goals. Here is one of them……
I used to struggle with sin. I used to fear sin. It was one of the things that kept me from God. I would find myself in this ongoing cycle of sinning, feeling bad about it, and then trying to cover it up. I would deal with the shame of my actions by pushing God away.
I had a dumb rule where you had to allow a certain amount of time to pass before you could pray or read the bible after committing a sin. HAHA IT WAS SOO DUMB! I would be like ok, I just watched porn and now I have to wait for my shame to go away before coming to God in repentance. I’ll give it a couple hours……#TRBL
Eventually my timer got away from me and I found myself broken and alone. I had allowed my sin to cripple my relationship with God. My shame kept me from going to the very place that would free me from it.
One of our goals at STRT TRBL is to help people to come to terms with fact that they are #TRBL(terrible). We want you to fully understand that no matter how hard you try, you cannot escape yourself. We are broken and sinful beings by nature. WE ARE ALL STRT TRBL.
BUT GOD MADE A WAY!
Once we get that, we can stop living with the crippling fear of our sin winning over our lives. The moment you give in to or let your shame get the best of you, is the moment you stop moving in the direction God would have you go. If we embrace the fact that we are #TRBL and that apart from Christ we are nothing, the only logical thing to do is to give ourselves fully to him.
When you find yourself slipping, run as fast and as hard as you can back to him. Your sin/shame should never keep you from approaching God. That’s the beauty of the Cross of Christ. It’s in those moments of self doubt we are reminded of why Christ’s death was necessary for our salvation.
You are STRT TRBL. Get over it.
