Dealing with fault finders

Is there someone who’s a fault finder in your life? Is anyone telling you what’s wrong with you? Unless you’ve asked for an honest assessment, listen very guardedly. Ask Christ to teach you what he wants you to learn from it, but don’t stop there. Wait to hear Christ’s affirmationa of your goodness. It’s possible […]

God is speaking to you right now

Eyes can often hear better than ears. God is never silent, never stops trying to communicate with us. So he speaks to us through what we see.

The thirst of the soul

Do the word

It’s possible to bend the Word of God to our own will. We can find scriptures that prove our point on anything we want it to, albeit only by taking it out of context.

Communication problems are usually not from a lack of trying but from a lack of courage. We’re afraid to be completely honest – with ourselves.

We fill the gaps of insufficient information with assumptions that protect […]
