God’s love for me is greater than the things I fear will happen.

By in Biblical Affirmations, Crazy Grace Blog | 0 comments

  And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. Romans 8:38 Whatever worries you have about tomorrow, they cannot separate you from God’s love. You are secure in God’s love. Nothing will change that. The things you fear will happen lose their power when you call to mind God’s love. He will strengthen you as you face the unknown future. God loves you. Think about God’s love instead of the things you fear.     You have been reading 60 Biblical Affirmations for Anxiety.

Life Is Short: How Will You Invest Your Life This Year?

By in Noah's Archives | 0 comments

I enjoy solitude. That makes me a good fit for a writer, but it makes it difficult for me to build relationships. I’m learning how important it is for me to intentionally build relationships and invest in the lives of others. It may take me away from things I’m doing, but without relationships, those things are unnecessary anyway. Some years ago, I put up a blog post on New Year’s Day called, “What Would You Do If You Had One Year to Live?” I talked about how that would change our perspective, but that shift is one we ought to live with. For a long time, that was my most-viewed post. I want to simply leave you with this graphic and ask you: How will you live this year? What will you do differently? Will you spend your time or invest it?     This is your life. Do what you love, and do it often. If you don’t like something, change it. If you don’t have...

That They All May Be One by K.P. Yohannan

By in Book Reviews, Christian Living | 0 comments

The writings of K.P. Yohannan always resonate with my heart. I can read them over and over and still find gems of truth I need to make real in my life. That They All May Be One is a short book on conflict among Christians. The world is watching how we treat them and how we treat each other. Christians have a reputation for killing their wounded and today’s social and political climate has made people more combative than ever. The answer is love. When we love people we don’t like, it demonstrates Christ’s control over our lives. It doesn’t matter whether we agree with someone; we are still to express the love of Christ to him or her. This message is needed now more than ever and I encourage Christians to read That They All May Be One.   Book Quote To prepare them for the enormous task ahead, He simply left this powerful statement: “By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if...

Lord, Help Me to See Other People as You See Them

By in Crazy Grace Blog | 0 comments

Lord, Help me to see other people as you see them. Let me not look upon the masses or refer to the generalized public, but to see each individual and love them the way you love them. You made each person in your own image. Let me see the image of God in each person. Let me realize the high esteem with which you regard each life. Just as I am your workmanship, let me see your workmanship in each life I encounter. It doesn’t matter whether they know you or not, they are still precious in your sight and you love them so much you died for them. How can I not treat each person with personal care when I know they are your masterpiece—a work of art in progress, being sculpted into your likeness? Lord, you said that if we do something for “the least of these” we have done it for you. The way I treat others is a reflection of how I treat you. My spiritual life is played out in the physical...

Creating a Kinder Christian Political Discourse on Social Media

By in Crazy Grace Blog | 0 comments

I wrote this in response to all the hostility I see on social media. Civil discourse has lost its civility, especially among Christians. We no longer politely discuss the issues, granting room for different opinions. Now people attack any person who holds another view. I wish to remind Christians that how we treat others is how we treat Jesus. The world is watching our behavior so we tarnish the name of Jesus whenever we do not love one another.   Dear Christians, I don’t care what your political views are. Please stop verbally abusing those who hold a different view. You think God is on your side, and you’re right. Would it surprise you to know God is on *their* side, too? Both sides can be right in some ways. God loves everyone, regardless of their political views, skin color, sexual orientation, sinful behavior, self-righteous legalism, and a host of other things. It doesn’t matter....
