Sometimes, it really does feel like these rough seasons are here to stay. That there is no silver lining in sight. Your circumstances have pummeled you to the ground and you cannot find another reason to smile or go on. But I challenge you my friend, to not look beyond what you see, but to take a great harsh look at your reality. To see how the Lord God is working in your situation and how He is highlighting the unrecognized blessings in your life in new ways!
Lately, the responsibilities of my life have been doubling up and it seems like I cannot get a moment to breathe. However, the way I respond is entirely different, no longer am’I running from my fears and coping with negative practices.
Okay, let’s be frank for a minute! America has millions of christians living everywhere. People see our Christian focal points and our staples, which are our churches, community centers, and conferences. Our Bibles are plastered in every library, however how many of us are living the true Christian life. In Francis Chan’s “Crazy Love” he reminds us of how God’s love is our motivation to change and not remain the same.
If you’re thinking change in your life is impossible, then don’t let Satan or your flesh fool you! A Christian in Christ has no choice but to grow!
Discipline does not feel good at it. Especially, when you feel like you’re being unfairly punished. Why does God use punishment as a tool? How useful is it?
There are some people who cannot keep anything a secret. Even after the Mighty God told them to. The last thing we should do is expose our good deeds, when Jesus warns us to do good unto others for God’s glory. Are we secret keepers or consistent, glory hog whistle blowers?
Which do you believe more of people’s opinions or God’s Word? We all have different church and life experiences, but thank God that His Word is the ultimate decider.
A soft, friendly reminder to always be thankful towards God! We can miss and take for granted our day to day blessings. Make sure your thankfulness is sincere.
Heaven cannot come fast enough, especially when living on Earth is painful. But what can you do but be honest before God, and have late night conversations with the King? He is the answer.
Struggling with laziness or slothfulness is an everyday battle. Laziness or slothfulness is a sin. It is the unwillingness to do what needs to be done, so to gratify our desire to please the flesh. The independent, selfish mindset screams out, “I do not feel like it. So I am not going to do it.” In spite of the Holy Spirit urging us, and jumping in the air, waving red and white flares to work. Since time is short. How destructive is laziness?
