Flawed and Fruitful (365 Days of Daring Faith — DAY 299)


1 Corinthians 13:10 (NLT)
But when the time of perfection comes, these partial things will become useless.

As humans, we long for that which is perfect. We strive for the perfect job, the perfect marriage, the perfect house, the perfect family, the perfect image. All of this is mostly an attempt to avoid facing our identity which means coming face to face with our flaws and owning them. What it really means is that we’re longing and searching for heaven to be our home. Read more…

From Guilt to Grace (365 Days of Daring Faith — DAY 239)

From Guilt to Grace

Romans 8:1 (NLT)
So now there is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus.

One of the biggest burdens people carry in life is shame and guilt. Since we are far from being perfect in any area, we are all faced with guilt and shame of some kind over our real or perceived flaws and certain imperfections. Just by being alive, we all are accustomed to some level of guilt. When sin entered the world, so did guilt and shame. Read more…

3 Plain Signs You’re Moving Forward (365 Days of Spirited Living – DAY 122)

3 Plain Signs You’re Moving Forward

“Confidence is contagious. So is lack of confidence.”
— Vince Lombardi

You can’t always see progress. It may seem that you are working as hard and as fast as you can, but with little results. It is important to understand that progress often takes a while to catch up with all your work. But it will catch up at some time. As long as you keep working and getting better and doing your very best, your work will turn into progress and eventual success. If it feels like time has stopped, know that it hasn’t. So long as you are making progress the time you spend does not matter. Someone once said, “When things don’t happen right away just remember, it takes 6 months to build a Rolls-Royce and 13 hours to build a Toyota.”  Read more…

5 Truths About Love (365 Days of Spirited Living – DAY 45)

5 Truths About Love

“You cannot convince people to love you. This is an absolute rule. No one will ever give you love because you want him or her to give it. Real love moves freely in both directions. Don’t waste your time on anything else.”
— Cheryl Strayed

“Love never fails” is one of the most famous lines quoted on love. Although it comes straight from the Bible, most of us tend to forget that this is the kind of love we should be giving and seeking. We are content to fantasize about the ideal partner and imagine love as a rush of sweet feelings or butterflies in the stomach. The problem is that real love is not a feeling or a rush of emotions. It is something deeper than that.

Here are 5 truths we need to remember about love — when giving it and looking to receive it: Read more…

God At Work (365 Days of Daring Faith – DAY 32)

God At Work

Philippians 1:6 (NLT)
And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns.

God often uses difficult situations in our lives to work out His perfect plan and will. He doesn’t aim to scare us or make us fearful, but He does aim to make His glory known through the grace that should be evident in our hearts. The work of grace is a work of trust and goodness. It helps us to surrender to what God wants done in the world. It increases our faith. We are urged not to give up because God is still working on you and me.

Stand Out (365 Days of Spirited Living – DAY 22)

Stand Out

“Fitting in is the greatest barrier to belonging.”
— Brene Brown

A lot of people — and I mean a LOT — spend their entire lives trying to fit in with certain groups. They are looking for meaning — some kind of rhyme and rhythm to their existence. But, more deeply, they are looking to belong. It’s a never ending pursuit of finding a special place with a special person or group of people.
