The Struggle Is Over!

Grace is a gift, and the simple definition of grace is we no longer have to struggle to remember and obey God’s laws, or struggle to live a godly, moral life, because He will put it in our heart and mind to do so. Read the rest of this entry »

Don’t Get Tangled Up In The Details

Most of us believe in the basic principles of God, but we’ve been taught different ways to think of Him and worship Him. And that’s okay, unless our differences are due to “human tradition and the basic principles of this world.” God wants us to be held captive by Christ and His love for us—a simple relationship.

I Can See!

 

Sometimes, trying to live a good life is like playing pin the tail on the donkey; you’re blindfolded, spun around until you’re dizzy, and shoved toward the donkey. What are the odds?

Peace is the very essence of God’s love, and the ultimate goal. Unfortunately, our peace is often gained or increased by trial and/or discipline, which can be unpleasant or painful.

At times it seems life is just one discipline after another, and we wonder when we will get to the peace. But if we seek God, we will find His peace. Yes, we will always have difficult times, but when God’s peace begins to seep into our hearts and minds, we will be quicker to hand the difficult situations to Him, knowing He is in control.
