Over the last few years my journey through life has had a lot of unexpected twists and turns. During that time I have learned my plan is not always going to work out, but God’s always does. I have also learned God does say no. I want to share with you a testimony of some prayers I have had and how God answered.
When the word Christian is said what does the world think? What have we become known as?
Against Gay Marriage, Against Pro Choice, Against Gambling, Against Drinking.. Against… Against……..Against………….Against…………….Against………………………………………………………………..
Since Easter was only yesterday, it is more than fitting for me to talk about that beautiful event! I do have one more part to “Strength of Prayer”, but I believe it can wait a week. If you want to check out an older post about Easter, read this one here. As a sidenote, that was one of my first posts on this site!
When you really look at the events of Good Friday it doesn’t look so good, for Jesus.
Jesus was betrayed by one of his 12 closest friends, he was lied about, spit on, beaten, had his clothes taken from him and gambled for, he was whipped, made fun of had a crown of thorns pressed into his head and they hung on a cross until he eventually died. I don’t know about you but I can’t think of anything worse than this.
In today’s world it is easy to get down. The car wont start, the kid at school is making fun of you or it could be worse. You could be sick, someone you love could have cancer, or you just happened to turn on the news and see one of the many things that are going on. However I would encourage you to keep your head up.
Have you ever stopped to think about the everyday miracles in life? These miracles are the things that must line up perfectly to make living possible.
How to Fight Like a Christian
When Someone is yelling at my my hands to to shake, my face gets flush and my mind starts racing to come up with the next snarky remark. When I get my chance to talk I have a choice. Say something to diffuse the situation or say something to fan the flames.
I have been on mission trips, served lunches to the needy, and handed out lunches in parks with various groups of teenagers. I have heard teens say from time to time, why do we serve these people? The teens hearts don’t totally understand why we serve. They feel like these people maybe got themselves in the position of their need.
