Fellowship with People – NOT with Your Faults!

Fellowship with People – NOT with Your Faults!

Don’t Fellowship with Your Faults!       Enjoying the company of loved ones is fine, but…we shouldn’t fellowship with our faults! Some people are often quite happy to point out our faults to us…but we more often tend to be our own worst critics!   Here is your midweek inspiration…   “Meditating on all of our faults and failures weakens us, but meditating on God’s grace and willingness to forgive strengthens us. Our relationship and fellowship are to be…

Your Choice: Trust in Yourself OR Trust in God

Your Choice: Trust in Yourself OR Trust in God

It May Not Seem Like It When You’re in the Midst of it…   You might wonder whether trusting in yourself is easier than trusting in God. Yet, truly, God moves in mysterious ways at times. In spite of how it looks from our limited human perspective, God some how is at work to bring about good outcomes for us, in line with His plan and will for our lives. It reminds me of this verse from Jeremiah 29:11 (a…

It Requires Faith to Believe – As Well As to NOT Believe

FAITH to believe… And NOT to believe? Have you ever pondered this? I think it’s one of those mind-boggling concepts.

How often does fear of someone or something send us into hiding, or perhaps into the “fight or flight” mode, depending on our personalities and the nature of the fearful reaction? The same seems to hold true for fearful or anxious situations that arise, when we need to know how to handle them. A quote I’ve heard, and don’t know the source, is, “When fear comes knocking, send faith to answer…

On Spirituality: Religion or Relationship?

On Spirituality: Religion or Relationship?

On Spirituality: Do You Follow a Religion or Do You Have a Relationship?   Religion or Relationship?  My beloved Dad used to talk about the difference all the time. People would mention being religious or following some specific religion, and ask him about his religion. Dad always said it’s all about a relationship, not a religion – as in having a personal relationship with Father God, not merely fulfilling religious duties as part of  an organized religion or denomination.
