#Truth

  • "I have the fastest car! #Truth"
  • "Somewhere someone is looking for exactly what you have to offer. #Truth"
  • "Don't let someone's words blind you to their behavior. #Truth"
  • "Your body, Your rules. Don't let society mess you up." #Truth
Statements like these are the hashtags of our lives. But do they satisfy? Do they change? Can they transform? Or is there something better?

ACTION!





I grew up in a Christian home. I was taught to attend church every Sunday, to have good morals, pray before every meal, celebrated Jesus' birthday at Christmas, read the Bible, but something was missing for me. I only knew how to be Christian by doing all of those things, I didn't know that there was a real relationship I could have with Jesus.  . . . . . There was Action to be done!!!!

Light at the End of the Tunnel

How much light is at the end of your tunnel?
We spend so much time out of our days living in our pain. In high school  I was so consumed with trying to be better, trying to be enough and trying to be the best and somehow I never seem to be better or enough or the best. Life seemed hopeless. When we look at our lives in the future the tunnel ahead of us seems dark and claustrophobic. How much light do you see at the end of your tunnel?

Can't Force the Force

There are many things in life we would like control of! Let's face it... you would likely not be reading this article if you didn't in some way try and control your life.

Yet, the more we try to have the power to control the more we realize just how lacking we really are. Soon our utter powerlessness to control our circumstances in life become so overwhelming.

Paul David Tripp says this; "The fact that I am not in control should not make me think that my world is out of control." 

So, Are you ready to give up what little power you believe you have for the Power that is in control no matter how little you believe?

Denial

"Denial is not just a river in Egypt and those who sail it are the captains of their own helm."
~George L.

A life of denial is more dangerous than the things we actually struggle with. If admitting is the first step of recovery than denial is the first stage of our hurts, habits, and hang-ups. Think of denial like cancer, if you catch it early it can be treated and prevented from returning, but if not, detriment is sure to ensue. So, why is denial so dangerous and how does it sneak up on us before we see it for what it is?

Only God Can Judge Me

Only God can judge me!
 How many times do we hear this said? How many times have we said this ourselves? What are we “supposedly” judging? Is God our only judge? What is our responsibilities within this statement? Is it even right to say it?

This Monday (August 18, 2014) at 5:30pm at Life Hurts, God Heals (LHGH), we will be discussing The Heart. The heart is a subject that I’m very passionate about. I would like to start out by saying that I’m a sinner just like everyone else. 

 Maybe it’s time to rethink the sayings that we use? Maybe it’s time to rethink “how” we use the sayings we use?
