Blessed Are Those Who Mourn
This phrase seems to point to mourning not something that happened to me but to something that I have done.
Leave the Past Behind
"Nobody gets to live life backward. Look ahead; that is where your future lies." It is a humorous visual. Who would want to live life backwards? Yet, we get caught up in thinking more about the past than we do the future.
God's Voice Heard in Different Forms
Do you long to hear from God? What does his voice sound like?
Have you ever had a stain on your carpet that would not come out? Sin is like that carpet stain. It takes a new carpet to get rid of the stain. It takes a new life in Christ to get rid of the stain of sin.
What does it mean to be in Christ? Is there something that I have to do to be in Christ? Is this what it means to be saved?
For many of us, the need to be in control, to be stressed, feels normal and healthy, even though there is scientific evidence to the contrary.
Making decisions shouldn't be so hard. Why do I spend so much time worrying about day to day choices, trying to handle them on my own? Why do I only pray as a last resort or in an impossible situation?
Jealousy, that nasty emotion, begins almost as soon as we are old enough to notice pretty things. Lucy has a doll that is prettier than mine. I wish I had that one. Jealousy causes us to feel underprivileged. It alienates us from one another and distances us from God.
Power in Praise
I sing along with the congregation, praising God at the beginning and end of a church service. I often listen and sing along to songs of praise on Christian radio. Iím a good follower, but how often do I initiate the praise without the influence of a worship leader or radio program?
Shaping the Next Generation
Parents are responsible for shaping the lives of their children. Not only parents, but all adults serve as examples that are followed, whether for good or bad.
