Wholeness is God’s highest call for us. The work He has begun is to that end.
A lot of the time, when we see sin, we slap a morality bandage on it to “cure” it. This won’t do. Where there is sin, there is a need for healing.
“Letting go” isn’t usually easy — especially for me. It doesn’t matter what it is. It’s much easier for me to let go of things I know I don’t need and don’t care about — but what about when it’s something I really care about?
I found the reason I was trying to be “relevant” was not because I wanted people to accept God, but I wanted people to accept me.
Many women have been encouraged to write a list that spells out all that they’d want in a boyfriend/husband. Many times, we make these lists identifying our wants, but not our needs. There’s nothing wrong with identifying what you want, but don’t compromise what you need for what you want.
Have you ever been in love? Many of us would claim we have. sometimes, this is the case. Sometimes, it’s something else.
While some of these things can be helped by a relationship, it is only a temporary fix that is likely to land you in further issue.
No one tells you to ‘hang in there’ when things are easy. God never promised we wouldn’t suffer; though He did promise that He’d always be with us…
Every time we examine who we are in comparison to someone else, we are exchanging truth for a lie.
Friends will either encourage you towards purpose or propel you towards ruin.
