**Hang tight, this is a long post, but it is very interesting.
I’ve been following Christ for two years now, and I’m very passionate about him. Last week, I asked God to bring me back to the foundation of Christianity, so I could tell people about him effectively. He brought me into the book of Acts, which is filled with stories of how the early church started. There are some profound sermons and stories shared by the pioneers of the early church (Peter, Paul, Stephen, etc.) These men were effective in preaching the gospel to people who knew about God (Jews), and those who did not (Gentiles). Reading Acts has motivated me to share the gospel with as much detail as I can. I’ll encourage you to read this post, and proceed to read Acts for more in depth understanding of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Continue reading “I bring you Good News!”
When you become a believer in a world that is forgetting God, and choosing to live life the way it pleases, you start to see the world in its broken state. It’s like you are given fresh lenses that enable you view the world differently. When you begin to see this brokenness, it’s easy to lose hope in God’s redemption plan sometimes.
You start to take some of the worlds’ burden upon yourself, and it is too much to carry. I can’t count the number of times I thought to myself and prayed that God will just come back already. Continue reading “How to live in a world deficient of God’s presence”
Welcome to another week, and thank you for stopping by the blog. Last week, Jess (our favorite guest blogger) and I discussed the problem of Anxiety and those ‘Blah Moments‘ that we experience. Both topics resonated with me and prompted me to write this post.
I can’t speak for you, but as a Christian, my whole wiring is based on my belief in God and his purpose for me. My anxiety stems from not trusting God enough, and forgetting that he has all things figured out for me. This might be your reality too if you think deeply. Like me, you may want to trust God completely, and depend on him one hundred percent.
My former thought that anxiety cannot be cured has changed radically since my last post. I am now a firm believer that anxiety can be gone completely just like Joan said in response to me. I am experiencing for myself that it’s only a matter of trusting God and his purpose more. This happened through constant study of God’s word and conviction by the Holy Spirit.
The tips below are tips that are helping me build my trust in God. You might have heard them before and this is just a reminder. It is my hope that as you read on, you realize that faith and fear cannot coexist, faith must ultimately win.
Over to the tips;
Believe that you are right with God: A lot of times you think there is something you do that makes God pleased with you. Before you can trust God, you need to know that he is and has always been interested in you. When he sees you, he doesn’t see you as an unworthy sinner, instead, he sees you in the righteousness of Jesus, the child in whom he is well pleased (God is pleased with you!) Matthew 3:17. He loves you, and you did nothing to earn that love, so there is nothing you can do to un-earn the love. Accept that God loves you, is pleased with you, and you have been made right with him because Christ died for your sins. If you hold on to the devil’s lie that God is angry with you because of sin, you will let him win by not enjoying your father’s truth and grace which you need to trust him. Confess your sin and receive God’s forgiveness. Continue reading “Trusting God more| Practical Tips”
