DOUBT- WHERE WISDOM BEGINS — Rebecca Burtram

James 1:5 If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and he will give it to you. He will not rebuke you for asking. Why are we here? What is the point? Does life have meaning and value? These questions intrinsically reflect doubt. They implicitly challenge the notions that there is a reason for life… Continue reading DOUBT- WHERE WISDOM BEGINS — Rebecca Burtram

When Moses died, The Lord came to Joshua son of Nun to command him in the way he should go. Joshua was going into the promised land and in that land flowing with " Milk and Honey" there were giants. These giants presented an obstacle to the children of Israel, in that they were godless,… Continue reading “Be thou strong and very courageous…..” Joshua 1:5 -9

Why Didn’t God Heal Me?

I am reblogging this. I think many need to read this and find hope.

God Running

Why didn't God heal me?

So last post we saw my friend Mike’s miracle: how he had a heart attack but was healed. It really was remarkable the way things turned out. But when you read that post, you may have said in your head, “Yes, that’s great that your friend Mike was healed. But what about Christians who aren’t healed? What about Christians who have a thousand people praying for them, but then they die anyway?”

Making Time to Write

No more procrastination!

Dr. Matthews' Blog

Dr. Matthews addresses a common problem – time management. In today’s post, she focused on authors making time in their schedules to complete their writing goals.

Make Writing a Priority Make Writing a Priority

How many times have we said “I just don’t have the time”? Lack of time is not an excuse. Each of us has the same 24 hours in a day, 168 hours in a week, and 52 weeks in a year. Not having time simply means that there is something else you have allowed to become more important.

Step back and take an honest look at where you spend your time. In reviewing your regular routine, what are your non-negotiables (the things you MUST do on a regular basis)? Prioritize those responsibilities. Hint: If you are a writer, writing should be one of your non-negotiables!

Many of us wear multiple hats, whether it is as parent, employer, employee, caregiver for…

Forgiveness

Forgiveness & You: Love Covers

Jesus, speaking to the disciples about his coming death on Calvary and resurrection, gave them a new commandment (John 13:34). Jesus, gave them this command as he knew that God first loved us and sent him (Jesus) for the express purpose of forgiveness of sin and bringing reconciliation to the father. It is because of the love of the Father that the, Son gave his life, that we might not die in our sins, but live eternally in righteousness with the Lord.

Forgiveness: Don’t Forget What You Look Like!

Good Morning, Today's post we will continue to explore Forgiveness, and how extending forgiveness is an act of compassion and love. We all want others to over look our flaws, our eccentricities, our failures, our sins or ugly characters.

LUKE 22:32 (Make A Comeback)

This article spoke to my soul. Many times I have allowe my self to entertain condemnation, guilt and shame, because i amde a mistake and thought my whole walk was messed up. But now i will say ” Therefore, there is no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh but after the Spirit.” Romans 8:1

THE RIVER WALK

comeback

“But I have pleaded in prayer for you, Simon, that your faith should not fail. So when you have repented and turned to me again, strengthen your brothers.” (Luke 22:32 NLT)

Read:Judges 2:10-23, Judges 3, Luke 22:14-34, Psalms 92, Psalms 93:1-5, Proverbs 14:1-2

Relate:  When we make big mistakes, there is a small voice in the back of our heads telling us, “you can’t comeback from this one.” I wonder if this thought crossed Peter’s mind when he heard the rooster crow. He had been so certain that he would do anything for Christ, even go to prison or face death, yet he failed to admit to even knowing Jesus that same night. This is why he wept bitterly as he realized his failure. He had truly believed in his own strength to stand up for his beliefs, and he had failed.

Peter was not left in his failure. In…

Courage, Encouragement, Persecution

This test is hard….. Hang in there!

When we face trial and tribulation and persecution we have a natural tendencies to complain, to blame God and the world, to begin to doubt God and our purpose, but this reaction only serves as a sign of distrust in a believer in Christ. Instead of complaining or questioning God and giving up on the faith, we should instead ask for:
