Don't just watch and agree 49 d
The message of Christ asks far more of us than this. **
Jesus didn’t merely give to the poor, He joined them.
This is what led Claiborne to found The Simple Way: A tension between people maintaining their own comfortable social status while therapeutically giving to the poor, and the life and teachings of Christ. So Claiborne did just that, he joined the poor. He lived among them. He loved them and was loved by them.
And if I’m honest, this is a really scary thought for me to think: That Christ demands that I give up my social standing in order to follow Him. When I probe the depths of my heart, it becomes clear that things like status, c ... read more

So, how do you win over lust for the sake of your spiritual and marital health?
Here are the basics:
Own the responsibility for your choices and agree with God about the sinful nature of lust. Confess it and claim the forgiveness God promises in 1 John 1:9.
Take an inventory of your past for sexual abuse or premature exposure to sexually explicit material and ask God to give you peace and break the bondage that those experiences still hold on you.

How your speech and writing can change people 58 d
How was it? Save stories you love and never lose them. Write like you really want to help, guide, and really inspire others!
”Clear writing is clear thinking.” My 10th-grade English teacher shared that morsel of wisdom once as I was slogging through a 20-page term paper with no idea where I was going or how to make the points I wanted to make; every word I wrote led me further down a rabbit hole of rambling sentences, incomplete thoughts, and disjointed ideas. It felt like I was writing in circles.
If clear writing was clear thinking, then my thinking was as clear as mud. The problem wasn’t that I couldn’t put words to paper. The problem was I couldn’t get those words to make sense. That’s because I wasn’ ... read more

* Tips for a better marriage = http://tolovehonorandvacuum.com - 10 Tips for Getting Your Wife in the Mood
Marriage is like so many things in life - it has to be a mutual relationship; not a dominated controlling event! God’s plan for marriage is based upon sharing and caring. Yet for many in the world today - marriage has become an element on how the husband or male in the situation handles the arrangement as to physical contact and direct interface between both parties! Such methods become a system of domination and generally a one sided affair!
This is where we need to understand the purpose, rights and how the inter relations work in a marriage! While there have been many different ways ... read more

“Why don’t you just trust in God?” 3 mon
** “I feel every day, as I get older, anyway, that it’s all a miracle,” said Hopkins. “I mean, my heartbeats, my lungs breathe. That is an extraordinary — an extraordinary phenomenon.”
Actor Anthony Hopkins was a self-acclaimed atheist for the greater part of his life. However, a single question about God posed at an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting shifted his perception drastically.
Hopkins described his spiritual turning point during an appearance at the 11th annual LEAP conference.
During a pivotal AA meeting in 1975, a woman asked the actor a simple question that led to deep introspection for Hopkins.
“Why don’t you just trust in God?” she asked.
The fellow AA member’s advice led Hopkins to say “why not” and take what he called a “quantum leap” out of his ... read more
Is there balance in your life? 3 mon
Without balance, we make messes, like a haphazard high school student in chemistry class.
Grace + Faith = The Balanced Equation of Life
By Roxie Hebson | March 11, 2019
With safety goggles and a long white lab coat on, I began the weekly lab experiment in my high school chemistry class many years ago. I knew that if my measurements were off, I probably wouldn’t cause an explosion, but I would, at the very least, make a mess. I had to be aware of and carefully measure each chemical that I used.
Andrew Wommack makes a salient point about the importance of balance in his book, Living in the Balance of Grace and Faith, through his illustration of the chemicals, sodium, an ... read more
Learn to walk with the wise 4 mon
Here the phrase “walks with” is a metaphor for “living one’s life with,” encompassing thoughts, actions, and feelings. The person who lives in the company of the wise cannot help but to grow in wisdom because he will learn from the experiences and knowledge of his companions.
One of our goals in our earthly existence as Christians should be to say with the apostle Paul, “I have learned to be content . . . regardless of my circumstances.”
Paul goes on to say that he had learned how to be satisfied to the point where he was not disturbed whether he had abundance or was in need (see Philippians 4:12).
This is the picture of godly contentment!
Being content does not mean that we never want to see any change or that we have no vision for better things, but it does mean that we are not allowing the things we want and don’t have yet to steal the enjoyment of wh ... read more
