No Fear, Only Love (365 Days of Spirited Living — DAY 360)

no-fear-only-love

“Love is what we were born with. Fear is what we learned here.”
— Marianne Williamson

There are many things that we can be afraid of. There are also just as many reasons for us to love. Fear will never be completely eradicated on this side of heaven, but there is a chance that we can overwhelm it. Love, pure, unconditional love can put fear on the run.

The events of this life are real. War and terror, sickness and death, inequality and injustice are inevitabilities that we face and will continue to wrestle with. The psychology created by the harshness and brutality of this world makes fear all too real and love seems as unreal as a dream, even non-existent. Read more…

Hate Only Hurts Your Heart (365 Days of Daring Faith — DAY 284)

hate-only-hurts-your-heart

Matthew 5:43-44 (NLT)
You have heard the law that says, ‘Love your neighbor’ and hate your enemy. But I say, love your enemies! Pray for those who persecute you!

Listen to any presidential candidate on the campaign trail or in a debate with their opponent and you will see a continuous conversation about how one is better than the other and how what one says about another is unfair and/or untrue. How the other person responds is more of an example of how to and how not to respond when accusations are thrown your way, when you’re treated unfairly, or when someone hates you and wants to hurt you.

People Will Judge, Let God Defend (365 Days of Daring Faith — DAY 248)

People Will Judge, Let God Defend

Psalm 62:5-6 (NLT)
Let all that I am wait quietly before God, for my hope is in him. He alone is my rock and my salvation, my fortress where I will not be shaken.

There are always going to be people in your life that no matter what you do they will misunderstand you, hate you, and seek to tear you down. It can be a friend, co-worker, or even a family member who will criticize you at every opportunity. Even when you think there is nothing wrong and your motives and intentions are good, there will be people who will judge you, talk about you negatively, and attack you in vile and evil ways.

3 Other Warning Signs About the Company You Keep (365 Days of Spirited Living – DAY 235)

3 Other Warning Signs About the Company You Keep

“Stop letting people who do so little for you control so much of your mind, feelings and emotions.”
— Will Smith

Negative thoughts hold the power to ruin us, but equally, do negative people. Sometimes it isn’t our thoughts that kill us, but the negative people we allow to get to us. When we should extract people from our lives, we don’t because we don’t want to hurt their feelings or break up long-standing relationships no matter how draining they are. But if we never make the trek across that bridge, we may never get to where we attempted to go in the first place, and that is how regret develops. Read more…

The Poisonous Roots (365 Days of Daring Faith – DAY 217)

The Poisonous Roots

Hebrews 12:15 (NLT)
Look after each other so that none of you fails to receive the grace of God. Watch out that no poisonous root of bitterness grows up to trouble you, corrupting many.

Have you ever met a person who is filled with bitterness to the point that it influences everybody around them? Well, that’s how bitterness works. It is contagious. It is a controlling mechanism that quickly poisons everyone who encounters it. When one becomes bitter, it is very hard to break through with grace and love. Read more…
