The Thief Of Joy

Posted by Lauren Battle on

We’ve all been there. Sitting in the waiting room of a doctor’s office, or any office for that matter, is not my idea of a good time. As seconds turned to minutes, and the minutes dragged on, while anxiously awaiting to hear my name called, I decided to pick up a magazine. I...

Misplaced Faith

Posted by Paul McDill on

Then the men who had gone up with him said, “We are not able to go up against the people, for they are stronger than we are.” — Numbers 13:31  The story of the 12 spies going into Canaan has been one of my favorite stories for a long time. God had clearly told the people...

It can begin in a subtle way when we ask, “I wonder how they can afford that car?” Or maybe in an accusatory tone we comment, “They sure go on a lot of trips.” Or perhaps we think to ourselves, “I wish our family was as squared away as they are.” It may...

We have all been wronged and hurt in our lives. Living in a fallen world, the biggest pains often come from the people that we consider to be closest to us. There are many ways to deal with this kind of hurt, but we usually choose one of three options: to pay back, to forget or to forgive. The...

Gratitude Over Guilt

Posted by Rocky Hernandez on

Sometimes I‘ll be sitting around, minding my own business, and BAM! I am struck by overwhelming feelings of guilt, but not because I did anything. These feelings are completely out of the blue. So I start analyzing everything, every conversation I have ever had, every interaction, every...

Negative Thoughts

Posted by Luke Bedford on

We all want to take away our negative thoughts. Whether it’s bitterness, deceit, jealousy, anger, hatred, anxiety or worry, it is easy to recognize that the thoughts running through our mind control our lives on daily, or even a minute-by-minute basis. When the enemy sets his attack on our...

The Pioneer Of SparkNotes

Posted by William Battle on

“Christian minds have been conformed to the modern spirit: the spirit, that is, that spawns great thoughts of man and leaves room for only small thoughts of God.” ― J.I. Packer, Knowing God Growing up, I loved sparknotes.com. For those of you unaware of this little jewel, then...

Know My Thoughts

Posted by Scott Hiney on

Until we do something different, we’re destined to have the same outcomes, right? You can’t start your diet until you start eating healthier food. You can’t become a better student until you start studying more. You can’t be more awake during the day until you get more...
