A question both believers and unbelievers struggle with. Yet, the presence of evil actually proves that God not only exists but is the originator of good.
We know we should always pray, but do we always know how to pray? God loves when we share our concerns with Him. Here's a few ways we can pray with focus.
Freedom is a beautiful thing. But it comes with a responsibility to the Giver of it all. Life has much to offer us but God never wants any of it to be elevated above Him. He wants to be elevated in us and around us.
A sacrifice isn’t really a sacrifice unless it costs us something. It’s love in action and Jesus said the greatest love we can put into action is laying down our lives. Sometimes it’s convenience, but sometimes it’s the ultimate sacrifice.
To be honest, it can be hard for us to trust God sometimes. Not because we don’t believe He’s real, but because trusting Him means giving up control and adjusting our expectations. Trusting God means trusting Him in ALL outcomes and just for AN outcome that we want.
We can’t do anything for God without His help to help us do it. The exchanged life is taking His strength for our weakness and His peace for our chaos. The exchanged life acknowledges our dependence on a Greater – Him.
Peace is not the absence of chaos. Peace is God’s presence with us. God doesn’t promise that we won’t have troubles. But He promises to be with us through it all.
