The Cringe Factor

Dr. Henry Cloud is a popular author. He talks about “the cringe factor.” The cringe factor is “that big gulp you would have to take to go forward.” Years ago, a friend told him: “My rule is this: Any time I have to cringe or take a big gulp to agree to do anything substantial with anyone, whether to hire him, work with him, or anything significant,  I don’t do it.  Period.”

Henry says, “So the lesson here is that the best way to fix a problem is not to have it in the first place. (Italics ours). Learn and listen to the little voice inside that tells you things like:

  • This doesn’t feel quite right.
  • I don’t feel comfortable doing this or agreeing to this.
  • This is not what I really want.

No Cringe Factor here: God invites us to join Him in re-gathering His people back to His Land. He rejoices to do it with all His heart and soul. Jeremiah 32:41. This was foretold in Bible passages, like Luke 21:24.

Baptist Pastor Henry Blackaby is famous for saying: when you see God working, that is your invitation to join Him.

Please accept the Lord’s invitation to join Him in this work. There are 15 families waiting to make Aliyah (move to Israel). Click here to join the Lord in His work with the Cyrus Foundation.
