es feeling trapped. We all have a mindset, a particular way of viewing the world around us. What if our mindsets about life have become mind traps? How would we know? What would we do if that was true? This week, we’re talking about the mind trap of negativity.
God, what do you want me to do next? God, am I following your plan? These can be frequent prayers for people who want to know God's will and fulfill it. But what if living out God's plan for you has less to do with a specific decision and more to do with how you approach whatever comes your way?
We often wonder what it will cost us to follow Jesus. We may even ask, "Is it really worth it?" What will it cost us at work, in our relationships, in our finances? But what if Jesus wants more for us if we will just trust him and go "all in"?
There is more to your circumstance than meets the eye. Your current circumstances are a chapter. They are not the full story. So what is the full story?
While we don't always choose our circumstances, we do have the ability to choose our responses. But the response that has the potential to reverse the natural course of things isn't natural at all. What is that response?
Is there something you wish you'd been doing all along to prepare for what is happening now? How do we put the lessons we're learning into practice now?
We all start out life with great intentions. But our intentions aren't good indicators of our destinations. In face, our direction trumps our intention every time. That's why we all need to follow someone we trust. Someone who can make our lives better and make us better at life. If not Jesus, then who? And if not Christianity, then what?
Nobody gets lost on purpose. But we often find ourselves in places we never intended. If there's a disconnect between what you hope to be true in the future and the direction you're headed now, could it be time to take a closer look at your path?
At some point, we all face a choice of whether to remain in the shallows of faith or journey to the depths. The truth is we can't do both. We either settle for the shallows or take the plunge to grow deeper. So what is the one choice required to deepen our faith?
Many of us have viewed faith as something we do alone. We might have said that it’s private. But there’s a limit to our faith growth when we go it alone. There’s a deepening to our faith that we only experience together. When it comes to consistently growing our faith, “we” is greater than “me”. Who’s spurring on your faith and whose faith are you spurring on?
