Confession and Repentance

We’ve all been there. Approaching Thanksgiving Day with a list of complaints piling up in our hearts, clouding our vision from what truly matters. I’ve walked through a lot of Thanksgivings struggling to be truly grateful, with my eyes set on the temporary and not the eternal. If you’re in the same boat, struggling to […]

Today’s post is a follow-up to yesterday’s post, A Can of Worms. These two posts, written by Ashley Chesnut, address the bondage of sexual addiction.

You’ve probably prayed a prayer similar to this at one point in your life. It might have been during a season of waiting that seemed endless. Or maybe you’ve prayed this during a time of suffering or discontentment.

Take the bench when He offers it with great joy, dear friends. It is His grace to show you your limitations, because in them you will be able to see more fully that He has none. And as Paul learned to rejoice in His weaknesses because in them He knew the grace of God more completely, may we rejoice in our limitations and see with heaven-set eyes that only He can do it all. The bench just might be the place you need to see this from.

Four practical ways I strive to be free from my iPhone. 

Today we will follow-up yesterday’s post on the “daily scroll” with more ways on how we can champion our sisters-in-Christ through strolling through life with them. Yesterday we talked about criticism and how it can lead us to a negative attitude toward our friends. Instead of criticizing others, we can compliment them and encourage them in the Lord. Another way we respond to what we see scrolling through social media is to copy others instead of copying Christ.
