Testing Faith

Of course, following “a good day” (see yesterday’s post), there is a “not-so-good-day.” It was fine, but I just had to laugh at the circumstances that made it more trying than the previous day. I wondered, “Is this because I boasted about having a good day?” “Is it just impossible for me to have two …

A Good Day

Yesterday was a good day. What made it a good day was the absence of stress (or at least a considerable decrease in pressure). It seems kind of pitiful that I dread five out of seven days of each week. I never wanted to be one of those working for the weekend or living for …

Distractions

I’m not using my time wisely. It’s frustrating. There’s so much to do that it gets overwhelming, then I get so overwhelmed that I just can’t do anything. It kind of reminds me of when I was a kid (or maybe I still do this), and I’d try something new. If I couldn’t do it …

Happy Anniversary

We’ve been praying together for four whole years. I can hardly believe it. Thank you for your faithfulness and for your perseverance. There were so many times I wanted to quit. Satan crept in and filled me with doubt as to my accomplishing anything here. I felt isolated and alone like my words were falling …

Some questions were raised, “What direction is God moving us in?” “What is He telling us to do?” These were asked as they relate to our small group and to the Church as a whole, …

The Model Prayer

Jesus taught the disciples how to pray. In Matthew 6:5-8, He tells them not to pray like the hypocrites, aka the Pharisees. They prayed in public with long, loud, repetitive/rehearsed prayers to bring attention to themselves. Their prayers did not honor God nor bring Him glory. Up until about ten years ago, I never prayed …

Your one

The Pastor reminded us this week to continue to pray for “your one.” The one person in your life (or two) who your heart aches for their salvation. I never heard it called that before, “your one,” but I really like that phrase. It’s assigning responsibility to each of us to pray for one or …
