An In-Depth Guide To Meeting With God – Christian Article

Did anyone ever teach you how to pray? Probably not. After all, prayer is one of those things that we tend to learn by watching. If you grew up in a Christian home like me, you learned how to pray primarily by watching your parents and then doing what they did. (I’m sure my parents taught me more explicitly about prayer, but their example is what I remember most.) If you came to faith later in life, maybe you learned…

//pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/js/adsbygoogle.js (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push(); I have many entrepreneurs in my family, including my mom and dad, so I am always interested when I meet others who have ventured out on their own also. I met this “Mompreneur” through Instagram! Lauren Grier is a branding and web designer, and throughout our discussion shared with me her vision for the future of her business and personal life.

Tired and Desperate? Come Boldly To The Throne Of Grace – Christian Article

Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need (Hebrews 4:16).  I’m so grateful for the throne of grace. Lately, I’ve been operating in what I like to call, “Desperation mode.” My wife has been dealing with some significant health issues, which, in turn, has resulted in numerous extra burdens being placed on me. I feel like I’m spinning ten different plates, frantically running back…

Some Thoughts on Intercessory Prayer From Me and Dietrich Bonhoeffer – Christian Article

What is intercessory prayer? Let’s break this down. To intercede for someone means to “intervene on behalf of another.” Prayer is communication with God. Intercessory prayer, therefore, is communicating with God on behalf of another. Why does this matter? The Importance of Intercessory Prayer I confess: I have an easy time praying for myself, and a much more difficult time laboring in prayer for others. It’s not that I don’t pray for others. I do. Often. It’s just that, because of…

“No Longer Slaves” – The Jesus Pursuit – Christian Article

//pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/js/adsbygoogle.js (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push(); My heart is so overwhelmed. Like a kid standing outside Cinderella’s castle at DisneyWorld…except 1,000 times that. So much can be said about our Heavenly Father, and yet no words could suffice. The One Who sent His very own – only – begotten Son, Jesus Christ. I’ve been spending a lot of time particularly in the last couple of days listening to messages about prayer, including a couple by Francis Chan, author of Crazy…

God makes something out of nothing – Christian Article

//pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/js/adsbygoogle.js (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push(); Man is only able to make something out of raw materials God already created. Which is why, the only time God works, is when He makes something out of NOTHING. Once the item is created, he uses man to finish the rest. There is absolutely nothing you want or need that God can not make happen. Even if what you need does not exist (that is His specialty) He can create it and, if…

Arise and shine! – Christian Article

There’s a wonderful Old Testament passage that we read on 6 January – at Epiphany services. It’s from the book of Isaiah and starts with the words Arise and shine…for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you. What a wonderful exhortation this is – to start the new year. Arise and shine! It reminds me of an old Kelloggs’ commercial for orange juice that was called Rise and Shine – which showed a…
