Amazing Grace

Hi.  This week’s theme is “Take Up Your Cross and Follow Me”.  The scripture for this week is Mark 8:27-38.  I thought I would post a video of the song “Amazing Grace (My Chains are Gone)” by Chris Tomlin.  I hope you enjoy it and have a great weekend!

Breathing is a Gift from God

I think we all need to remember that breathing is a gift from God and we need to use it more often when we are having a hard time or not feeling well. Have a great week!

The Armor of God & Prayer

The Armor of God & Prayer

This is a great summary of the theme for this week. Let’s all put on the armor of God and pray for one another!

Pursuit.

…and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints,‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭6:17-18‬

I think it’s interesting that the passage about the armor of God ends with instruction about prayer. But in light of the opening of this section about what we are actually battling (For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. V12), it makes a lot of sense. The spiritual armor is invisible. Yes, obvious point haha. The Bible is visible, but you can’t buy a sword-shaped Bible and swing it around in the air. Won’t do anything…

Explore: Fear

I read this post today and I think it could be helpful to a lot of people. I do believe that faith is stronger than fear! Have a wonderful week!

Explore. Thank. Create.

What frightens you? I would guess that most people would respond with ‘the dark’ or ‘heights’ or the ever popular ‘insects’. All of these are valid responses (and I can personally relate to each of them) however to explore fear, I ask you to explore deeper fears you may have. Fears such as a fear of rejection, fear of failure, fear that you are inadequate or that you are powerful beyond measure; these are the types of fears I am referring to. These are the fears that I am continuously learning to tackle and conquer.

One of the fears I continue to explore within myself is my fear of being judged. Through this new blogging journey I am going to challenge myself to not write what I think people want to hear so they ‘judge me kindly’, but to really write in my (very unprofessional and unpolished) style because that’s who I am…

Something I Read Lately

Great post by oneragamuffin! Great message for this Sunday!

I’ve prayed this prayer many times on many different occasions. Never once has God answered my prayer by changing my circumstances, i.e. making my life easier, taking away my difficulties, instantly transporting me to the other side of my trials. What He has done is reminded me ever so subtly that He will be with me as He always has during my dark road.

Peace isn’t always  a feeling of contentment. Sometimes, the butterflies remain but so does the promise that God won’t forsake me. For me, a feeling of peace doesn’t always mean peace, nor does a lack of it indicate its absence. Try and work that one out and see if it makes sense.

After all, it is a peace that is beyond my utmost understanding. I don’t need a god who I can figure out and manage and understand. I need a God who is bigger than…

Another great message from the book of Ephesians from the blog “Sharing Love and Truth”.

sharing love and truth

Jesus prayed for us who would choose to become His disciples in the millennia following His death and resurrection! Wow! He prayed for you and for me… Do you know what He prayed?

“… that all of them may be one, Father, just as You are in Me and I am in You. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that You have sent Me” (John 17:21).

Our unity is testimony to the unbelieving world…. 

Seeking unity,

Renee
