Who Loves Crossword Puzzles?

By in Noah's Archives | 0 comments

As a writer, I enjoy word games of all types, including crossword puzzles. But the ones in the newspaper have ridiculous clues that a normal person couldn’t possibly know. I get frustrated when I can’t fill in the blanks to complete the puzzle. That’s why I made Crossword Bible Studies. They’re challenging enough for an adult, but simple enough for a child because of the fill-in-the-blank format. Each clue comes directly from the text of the Bible (KJV) and the verse reference is at the end of the clue. If you don’t know the answer, simply look up the verse to fill in the blank and complete your puzzle. Guaranteed success!     Want to try a crossword puzzle on the book of Psalms?

Introducing Bipolar Alien Monster

By in Noah's Archives | 0 comments

The artist known as I.M. Bipolar has graciously allowed me to share this cartoon of Bipolar Alien Monster. The Alien Monster character puts a lighthearted face on what it’s like to live with bipolar disorder. In addition to the extreme highs and lows of one’s own emotions, a person with bipolar disorder must deal with the misconceptions of others and countless obstacles to “normal” living. These add up to make a person with bipolar disorder feel foreign to the world like an alien and out of control like a monster. Thus, Alien Monster. In this episode, Alien Monster clings to social media for a sense of acceptance and affirmation, but finds none....

I Had a Black Dog. His Name Was Depression.

By in Noah's Archives | 0 comments

Some people say Winston Churchill was the first person to call his depression a black dog that followed him everywhere. Others say the expression preceded Churchill. Whichever the case, the black dog of depression has been around for generations now. And this old dog is up to the same old tricks. The black dog will train you, if you let it. But it’s better if you train the black dog.     This video is really well-done, so I can’t help but mention that the artist and author also has a book:Living with a Black Dog: His Name Is Depression by Matthew Johnstone.     Of course, faith in God helps us work through depression. God is always ready to help us. Feeling depressed? Make this your prayer: Come quickly, Lord, and answer me, for my depression deepens. Don’t turn away from me, or I will die. Let me hear of your unfailing love each morning, for I am trusting you. Show me...

Z Is for Zealous

So, my dear brothers and sisters, be strong and immovable. Always work enthusiastically for the Lord, for you know that nothing you do for the Lord is ever useless. 1 Corinthians 15:58   When I begin to feel tired and discouraged it’s a warning light to me. I’m trying to do things on my own effort instead of relying on God. Jesus said His burden was light, so if I feel burdened, I’m carrying more than He intended. By contrast, if I follow God’s lead and let Him carry the weight, I find myself rested and refreshed. Then I kick myself for not identifying the problem sooner. Then I find new zeal for the work He has given me. My work becomes a joy and I face each task with enthusiasm. I’m serving the Lord and my work has a purpose! Take time to check your burden today.     Get This Series as a Free PDF   Transformed by God: An A to Z Guide to Experiencing Change from the Inside Out I know...

Y Is for Your Unique Growth

By in Noah's Archives | 0 comments

And what you put in the ground is not the plant that will grow, but only a bare seed of wheat or whatever you are planting. Then God gives it the new body he wants it to have. A different plant grows from each kind of seed. 1 Corinthians 15:37-38   God causes us to grow into exactly who He wants us to become. God nurtures us to become someone new. We grow and change at His pace, according to His plan. We cannot cause ourselves to grow. We merely cooperate with God by receiving the resources He places in our lives for growth. Family, friends, teachers, and even people we don’t like can be part of the process God uses to create growth and change. Just as a plant no longer resembles the seed, our lives will no longer resemble who we once were. We are growing to become more like Jesus as we allow Him to live through us.     Get This Series as a Free PDF   Transformed by God: An A to Z...
