Not long after I started this blog about faith and OCD, a lady came across my blog and commented on it. She and I began emailing a little back and forth. It's cool to meet someone who relates to me OCD-wise and faith-wise.
There are three churches that I download podcast sermons from on a pretty regular basis. One of those is Lifechurch. It's a well-known church, but I'm sure there are many Christians who haven't heard of it.
Anyway, sometime in the past couple of days, I found out that the husband of the lady I mentioned above is a pastor of a network church for Lifechurch.
So... she and I have OCD and faith in common.
But... it's even more detailed than that.
We both struggle with a specific aspect of OCD - intrusive thoughts.
And... Lifechurch is a part of both of our lives in some way or another.
The way God works is awesome.
