Many people have noticed being depressed at Christmas. You are not the only one. Here are some reasons for the anxiety and some ways to overcome it.
There is a reason we need to declare with our mouths in addition to believing in our hearts. Speak out the things God wants to do in this world.
Don’t be well-rounded. Be who you were created to be and change the world doing it. What do you want from God? Become every bit the person He meant for you.
We pour our hearts out in a one-side communication to our God who we hope has affection for us. Our prayers are cast out into the empty sea of quietness.
You have no right to believe anything about yourself that God hasn’t said. Overcoming your shame involves replacing it with God’s truth.
So much of my Christian life has been taught that God is sovereign, and our goal is to figure out whatever His plans are and join Him. Jesus did nothing except what He saw the Father doing, therefore I should just sit hear until I see what the Father is doing. I am not going to dream about what my life could be, because God may have something completely different for me. I want whatever God wants, so I am just going to wait for His direction.
The desires of your heart are those things that God placed in you. They’re opportunities to connect with your heart which is where we connect with God.
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.
The Bible is consistently telling us do not be afraid. Moses, Joshua, Mary, Paul, and others heard God telling them this. Why is this? What is our response?
Why are promises to God common among Christians? Because we are afraid of sin, so we create rules to prove to ourselves that we are worthy of His sacrifice.
Promises to ourselves are designed to distance us from our pain, but what they really accomplish is to distance us from God and the life He has for us.
People criticize Saul for his pride by doing the sacrifice. But, many lives would have been lost. He had to consider that, right?
