Not only learning to let go, but learning to take things as they come. Regrets weigh a person down. Over time, the guilt from one’s past can break you down and overwhelm. But one must learn to let those things go. And when new problems arise, to handle them with all wisdom and gentleness and to let those go as well. Hold no grudges, have no regrets. Be content with what you have and be...
I like to write. It clears my mind and helps me say things I don’t know how to say vocally. Sure socializing is good, but spending time alone is good too. Of course, as with a lot of things, too much of something can be bad. Like too much time alone is bad or too much working is bad. But spending time alone is good for one can use this time a large number of ways. One way you can choose...
Not a vacation
Pain is…painful. And yet, we must endure it. As Paul said, “For your sake we are persecuted all day long. We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.” Christianity is suffering. It is painful. It is a fight. It is not a fun vacation or a getaway. You tell someone, anyone, this and they will wonder why anyone is a Christian. Well, compared to what Christ did for us, and...
Things go good. And then things go bad. Life likes to fluctuate. And when things go good, we’re happy people, full of hope and joy. But when things go bad, we walk around with dark moods (or we get so good at hiding it that we appear happy). When things go good, we haven’t a care in the world. We forget to give glory to God and we continue to live our lives in selfishness. And when...
It is an easy thing to point out the flaws of others when we ourselves are trying to live holy lives. Because we see ourselves trying so hard, but we see others faltering, and so we look down on them and we judge them and then we begin to think that we’re better than them. This is not biblical. Not for a second should we judge. I would say we should help a friend or brother when he is...
Christianity is actually quite simple. Jesus made it clear… Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength and with all your mind. Love your neighbor as you love yourself. These two things sum up the 10 commandments. These deal with your relationship with God (Vertical) and your relationship with others (Horizontal). If we focus merely on these...
Gotta start somewhere
My Testimony? I think it’s good to have a testimony of oneself so that there can be a point to where one can look back and see all the way they have been so as to be an encouragement to press on. So Part 1… For those of you who don’t know me that well, I grew up in a Christian home, raised by two loving parents who always pointed me to Christ. My Mother raised me up to go to...
Made this one specifically for my relationship with God. And hopefully it will be updated often.
