Some good thoughts here on the topic of “spiritual warfare.”  From Counseling One Another……………..

“Did you know that the term spiritual warfare never appears in Scripture?” asks David Powlison in his exceptional little book, Safe & Sound: Standing Firm in Spiritual Battles. He goes on to explain that spiritual warfare is a pastoral-theological term describing the conflict occurring at the heart of the Christian life. For good, biblical, and…

Entangled — Drawing Closer

We Christians do not want to become entangled and weighed down.  Look to Jesus!  From Drawing Closer…………..

Hebrews 12:1-3 Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the […]

Back to the term “faith.”  Such a small word but with HUGE implications when properly understood!  From THINKAPOLOGETICS.COM……………………..

Nice article on the beauty of God reflected in this world!  From Theology Along the Way………………..

I am about as fashion impaired as a person could be. Everybody has those pictures of when they were kids wearing ridiculous outfits, bad color combinations, and cringe-worthy haircuts. You didn’t worry about what matched, you just threw on what was clean and closest to you and off you went. But for me those pictures […]

There is “meditation” and then there is “Christian meditation.”  All believers are encouraged in the Bible to “ponder,” “think on these things,” “consider,” etc.  Here is a brief article that goes into that subject.  From Association of Certified Biblical Counselors………….

Everyone meditates. Really? Yes. Our minds are constantly dwelling on something. Sadly, many of us allow our minds to wander dangerously into the realm of alluring thoughts, discouraging thoughts, distracting thoughts, worrying thoughts, etc. What we really need is biblical meditation whereby we fix our restless minds on God’s Word so that it governs our…
