When you understand that you are a child of light, you desire to begin to walk worthy of this calling you have received from God, to be a light in a dark world. You are all sons of the light and sons of the day. We do not belong to the night or to the darkness (1 Thessalonians 5:5 NIV). Rest, dear friends! When you understand that you are a partaker of Christ and that you share in His life, your life has meaning- regardless of the opinions of others!Read More
Maybe you can relate? How much time have you spent afraid, worried, lonely, envious, or feeling sorry for yourself? I don’t dare even try to calculate such waste in my life.

Most of us are not being threatened physically but sometimes, honestly, we act like it! We are so fearful of stirring up an argument or offending someone with the Gospel in our conversations, that we become as anxious as if it were a threat of physical harm. This is definitely something that needs to change, and the only way that will happen is if we line up our hearts with the truth. We do this by prayer, as Peter and John and their friends did. We ask the Lord to understand the threat that we are perceiving, and help us overcome our fear. He alone can supply the boldness we need to speak the truth in love to our families, so we must ask Him directly for it.Read More
You cannot fear people and love them at the same time. Fearing people is self-focused, while loving them is God focused. We don’t love people because they are lovable. We love people because God loves us, and He calls us to love them. As we enjoy God’s love and acceptance of us, we are able to love and accept others, no matter how we think we compare to them.Read More
