Sounds like a simple concept, doesn’t it? Of course, whatever you feed will become stronger! So, what’s the point of stating the obvious? Well, the obvious is often overlooked and undervalued, so I thought it was important to remind ourselves to carefully consider what we feed. Think of all the things we feed and give […]
Showing kindness and going the extra mile to help someone just doesn’t seem to be high on many people’s “must do” list. Sure, we could excuse our bad behavior by saying we’re just too busy, but the truth is we should never be too busy to show kindness to another. (Matthew 7:12 NIV) says So […]
Guilt is a human response to something we’ve done or not done that we feel went against our beliefs. We are built to feel guilt, but how we deal with the guilt is what either draws us to or drives us away from God. Guilt is a complex emotion that holds many believers in bondage. […]
I stayed in a troubled marriage for fifteen years because I was held in bondage by fear. I don’t think I even realized at the time that I was putting everything before God, only giving Him a small piece of my heart. I dreamed of a better life, allowing that dream to consume my thoughts. […]
With all the devices and social media sites we have today to help us stay connected, why do so many of us still feel isolated and alone? I have a theory about that! We live in a world where many who post on those sites are quick to report the negative and exploit others’ sorrow […]
If you quickly glanced at the title of this blog, I encourage you to take another look. Now, read those three words slowly, this time with more thought and purpose. GOD IS LIMITLESS! No, really, GOD IS LIMITLESS! I’m not sure we can grasp the true scope of God’s love, wisdom, power, grace, and mercy. […]
What is keeping you from getting intimate with God? A good place to start is to explore what is making you anxious.
Did you know that anxiety plagues one out of every thirteen people worldwide, causing a variety of physical and mental health problems, which include depression, headaches, high blood pressure, and extreme fatigue? I don’t have to tell you that we live in a pressure-cooker world that treats anxiety as if it were a common-place disorder. […]
Do you believe you have to do things to earn God’s love? If so, does that mean that those who seem to do more are loved more by God?
We don’t have to DO anything to earn God’s love. We are already doing because we are the people He created us to BE. Being is doing. God knew our identity from the very beginning of creation, and He remembers how we are formed. We don’t have to DO anything to BE who God created […]
I find it sad that many of us are not being taught in today’s churches about God’s true character, about how much He loves us. Sure, we have heard the words, but our leaders frequently fall short in their messages to present the full measure of God’s intended message. For this reason, we all must […]
How important is it to be obedient to God’s Word? Is there anything in your life that you are refusing to do or stop doing that could be separating you from God?
How vital that word “obedience” is to God. If you say you love God but fail to obey Him, you miss out on so much. If I had failed to obey Him, even when His requests seemed so illogical, I would not have recognized and experienced many of the blessings and opportunities God had planned […]
