Share Your Story

I see two extremes in our society right now in how people deal with their painful stories or darker selves. On one hand, we are encouraged to stay positive and to put our best face on for others to see. Social media is well-crafted to fuel addiction, so that we get a nice boost ofContinue reading “Share Your Story”

Keep Moving Forward

Conscientious Christians who want to grow in the faith and in service to Jesus can often become discouraged. Sometimes we become discouraged by slow progress. We know that Jesus changes lives, and we want to see more of that change within our own life. Waiting for that change can be painful because we know thatContinue reading “Keep Moving Forward”

They Cannot Censor God

If you are a Christian and you are given something to say in the name of Jesus, they CANNOT censor you. Sure, they will censor you for a time, but the Lord of Heaven will not allow this to stand. “He that sits in the heavens shall laugh.” In their attempts to shut you up,Continue reading “They Cannot Censor God”

No Enabling in Love

If we have faith in the love of God towards us, then we know that we can trust in Him without fear of condemnation. However, because God loves us, He will not allow us to continue in destruction. Because He first loved us and we love Him, we will not condone or excuse sin withinContinue reading “No Enabling in Love”

No Fear in Love

I’ve been thinking today about the things I am afraid of. I am afraid of betrayal. I am afraid of being misunderstood, slandered, and accused. I am afraid of the words I write being misused, either as a tool against myself or others. I am afraid of being taken advantage of until there is nothingContinue reading “No Fear in Love”

Exhortation Against Projection Accusation

I don’t know how common this is, but I know this is something I have done, and this is also something I have seen and received from others a lot in my life. What I refer to is false accusations that are rooted in projection. What is projection? Projection is when we take something fromContinue reading “Exhortation Against Projection Accusation”

Wait and See What the Lord will Do

What do you do when you are faced with a huge problem, and the only solution available to you is sinful? I am faced with such a scenario, and I suspect that many Christians will be faced with a very similar scenario due to the fear, apathy, complacency, and selfishness of those in power. AsContinue reading “Wait and See What the Lord will Do”

Exhortation to Keep Building

Things have been hard for so many people lately. Things have been hard for me too, and it seems that difficulties are ramping up rapidly. Today, I felt the weight of it all. I feel like there are enemies on every side and within, trying to tear me away from the work I am doingContinue reading “Exhortation to Keep Building”

Disciples of Jesus or Dependents of Man?

I’m working on an article and this has me thinking about an important question that Christians should consider, especially those who hold positions of authority—in any measure, great or small. If we do something as simple as write a blog, we should consider. Are we creating disciples of Jesus Christ or dependents of man? WhenContinue reading “Disciples of Jesus or Dependents of Man?”
