Reading Week 6 of Jennifer Rothschild’s “Missing Pieces: Real Hope When Life Does Not Make Sense” goes over the question; God, Do You Err? Exploring as well as studying this particular inquiry, I was made to reflect on another question. How Do I Perceive God? What Is My Opinion Of God? This is […]
I was reading through some blogs this morning. One in particular, by Robert McKenzie. In this particular blog I found a rather valuable lesson in faith.
Thanksgiving is a day that more often than not anymore is one that is discussed as one that has fallen prey to commercialism or a means in which to celebrate racism along with intolerance.
What are we forgetting here?
It amazes me, but it is something too in which I personally have allowed myself to be blind sighted of.
What is that? You might ask.
Well…to put it simply, it is God’s provision. Since the beginning to time when Adam and Eve first walked this planet, God has been providing for His creation. The First Thanksgiving is an amazing reminder of this as we are reminded of the hardship of Pilgrim life, and perhaps life in general back in those times.
There were no grocery stores.
There were no irrigation ditches.
There were no airplanes.
There was not the presence of current medical research.
Looking back and trying to understand this from more of a historical context, it is hard not to see God’s hand in this. These people endured rough voyages, sickness, death, as well as famine. Through it all, they endured as well as survived.
This to me…acts as a testimony of God’s unconditional and enduring love for us.
Author C.S. Lewis taught me a little lesson in faith this morning. Faith in action and faith in words need to be a partnership. For faith without works is dead. This beautiful quote was a rather vivid reminder of this.
When we go out into the world, how important is our faith? Are we sharing it or are we hiding it?
If today, declaring our faith was the difference between living and dying…would we still hold to the beliefs we claim to have? I wonder… I pray I would.
The examination of Jesus’ death and resurrection has proven to be an interesting journey. In my listening to the research of author, Lee Strobel, and doing some of my own digging I came across some very compelling questions as well as arguments. How can we be sure Jesus was dead when He was placed […]
With Thanksgiving less than a week away, this song came to mind. Especially given so much of the tragedies we see now days. Sometimes we get so wrapped up in ourselves and in the woes we see around us, we forget the blessings we do have. This week as we get ready to take part […]
I listened to chapter one, via audio book, of The Case For Christ this morning. In it, I gained some deeper insight into the Gospels’ origins as well as have a bit more of a fresh perspective on the eye witness testimony of its authors. What makes these particular accounts of eye witness testimony so important? The […]
Important lessons on prayer learned this week: “You will lose hope if you wait for answers to fill in your empty pieces. The only hope that is real and lasting is the hope that comes from Christ Himself.” “Satisfaction doesn’t come from answers in your prayer. Satisfaction comes from the encounter you have with God […]
I have been wanting to pick up a certain book. That book: The Case For Christ by Lee Strobel. It is one that explores the question of Jesus’ existence. In fact, it was one written originally with the intention of disproving Christ’s existence as Lord and Savior. In some browsing around trying to see about […]
