One of the common refrains of unbelievers is that they don’t believe that a loving God would send anyone to Hell. They have a false sense of security. So they persist in living a life that is sinful and hateful to God because of their unbelief in a place of eternal punishment.
They truth is that in a way they are absolutely right. God doesn’t send people to Hell. The people send themselves there. God made a Continue reading
See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise.” Ephesians 5:15 KJV
Circumspect means to be watchful; take heed. To be cautious and prudent. Be watchful on all sides
Life is full of pitfalls. If we are not careful we can end up far from God. Everyday we must choose whether you will live right or not or do right or not. No one else can make the choice for you. You will either honor God this day and everyday or you will not.
To walk circumspectly is to walk in holiness. Foolish men and women don’t know they are headed for destruction. They live according to their flesh with no thought to where their choices will lead them. But as Continue reading
With a new year comes new challenges. But it also brings with it new opportunities. Some people look at the new year with dread. They whine and complain. “Another year has been lost and wasted. Here’s to another year and my dreams have not come true. I’m still struggling. Things are still hard. Life is still rough. When am I going to get my time to shine? When do I catch a break?”
I know that feeling. It’s that feeling of not knowing your purpose; of feeling that your sorrow is unending. “Why am I here Lord? Is this all there is?” I’m here to tell you that things do get better. But it takes time. Joy does come in the morning. It’s hard to believe that when you wake up and you’re facing Continue reading
Healing Is a Choice by Stephen Arterburn is a book about choosing to become well from physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual wounds. We have all experienced pain. Some more than others. Many people live shell shocked lives. Still suffering, and even acting out emotionally due to things that have happened to them years ago.
It’s like being stuck in a time warp with no understanding of how to be free. Often times we pray and pray to be free. But, when God doesn’t move the mountains out of the way we decide to just live with them. We don’t search to find out how to learn to get free. This must be God’s will we tell ourselves. But that’s not true. It’s not God’s will. You Continue reading
What have you done with your life? If you were to die tomorrow, would you have died with your dreams still in you? Or would you have died having given them birth?
All of my life I have wanted to write. And for the last several years I have been crippled by my fear of rejection. A couple years ago I made up mind to work on my book. The book that has been in my heart for years. I’ve given myself 5 years to write it. I’ve got three years left. It’s a slow process. But you know what? It’s worth the hard work and effort, as slow going as it is. I’ve always wanted to write a book, and I will do that. That’s my dream. I want to be a published writer. I want to be successful. I want to make a living as an author, which I believe to be my calling in this life. I’m working on it, and I know that I will achieve this goal.
People die everyday full of hopes and dreams for a better life, a better Continue reading
