When disappointment festers in our soul, it leads to discouragement.
Patience is not the ability to wait, but the ability to keep a good attitude while waiting.
Even though God loves us, we still have a problem: sin.
It's important for us to learn how to confront sin and overcome it, because while God loves sinners, He hates sin. And He hates it because of what it does to us and how it keeps us from the abundant life Jesus died to give us.
Now, we can't stop the devil from coming against us, but we can overcome him each time - if we exercise the authority of Jesus and decide not to put up with him.
Worry is like a rocking chair. always in motion, but not going anywhere!
Early on in my life, I had a broken soul.
I was abused by my father, abandoned by my mother and ended up in a destructive first marriage. By the time I was 23, I was broken in my soul. I didn't know how to think right. I felt wrong about everything. But God stepped into my life, and I came out on the other side and didn't even smell like smoke.
Too many Christians live their lives like slaves - to the devil - because they believe his lies more than they trust God.
I consider wisdom supernatural because it isn't taught by men - it's a gift from God.
The conscience can be a strong guide in life if we allow it.
I believe that a trusting attitude and a patient attitude go hand in hand.
You see, when you let go and learn to trust God, it releases joy in your life. And when you trust God, you're able to be more patient. Patience is not just about waiting for something... it's about how you wait, or your attitude while waiting.
Sometimes when you've had a long series of disappointing things happen, you can get into the very bad habit of just expecting more of what you've already had.
Much of everyday life is filled with opportunities to be distracted.
Our possessions... entertainment... cares and anxieties... and even the passionate desire and pursuit of things, some good and not so good, can keep our minds and hearts caught up in a flurry of activity.
When we believe the best of people, we let go of each thing they do that is hurtful to us. And we choose to think things like, 'I don't believe they meant to hurt me.' 'Maybe they're having a bad day or don't feel well.' 'They probably don't even realize how they sound.'
If God can't get you to obey Him concerning your money, he won't get to anything else you got.
Words are powerful; if you change your words, you can change your life.
Over the years, I've learned that a confident person doesn't concentrate or focus on their weaknesses - they maximize their strengths.
Many sophisticated, intelligent people lack wisdom and common sense.
It's impossible to live a life totally free of feelings.
God created all of us to be emotional creatures, and feelings are a big part of our lives.
Hope is favorable and confident expectation;
it's an expectant attitude that something good is going to happen and things will work out, no matter what situation we're facing.
There are many things that happen every day that we could murmur about if we let ourselves go there. But they really aren't worth the effort it takes to get upset and gripe about it.
One might say that our words are a movie screen that reveals what we have been thinking and the attitudes we have.
I've been studying the Bible for a long time.
I remember that after the first five years or so of diligently studying the Word, I didn't feel like I had made any progress. There were a lot of things in my life that were out of order, and I didn't feel like I was getting anywhere.
We can never make ourselves better by trying.
.. praying more or longer, studying more of the Word, performing good works, etc. Don't get me wrong... it's not bad to do any of these things. In fact, it's good. It's just that doing them in God's power is the only way those things will have any real and lasting effect in our lives.
The only answer to fear is faith in God, knowing He loves you unconditionally and individually.
The Word of God is active, energizing, sharp and powerful like a two-edged sword.
I want to let you in on a little secret: I don't always feel like I'm a success.
That's right. There are plenty of times when I feel like I've just totally messed up and failed to connect with the people I'm trying to communicate with.
Jesus is a divine guest inside of you all the time - one who loves, understands, sees and hears you. He wants to live in oneness with you... to be the centerpiece of everything you do.
We live in a time-crunched world, and just about everything we do seems to be urgent.
One of the things I love most about being at home is that I'm comfortable there.
And since we are the home of Christ, we need to make sure He's comfortable in us.
When you begin to worry, go find something to do.
Get busy being a blessing to someone; do something fruitful. Talking about your problem or sitting alone, thinking about it, does no good; it serves only to make you miserable. Above all else, remember that worrying is totally useless. Worrying will not solve your problem.
If someone decides they're not going to be happy, it's not your problem.
You don't have to spend your time and energy trying to cheer up someone who has already decided to stay in a bad mood. Believe it or not, you can actually hurt people by playing into their self-pity.
There is no man on Earth or devil in Hell who can keep you from the very best God put in you.
Worry and reasoning are two of Satan's most successful tools.
He'll get us started with one negative thought and then sit back and watch us finish ourselves off.
I'm amazed sometimes by the Christians who don't really believe that God wants to help them and bless them.
Spiritual people don't float around all day on clouds of glory;
they live in the real world and deal with real issues in real ways.
If we're really honest with ourselves, most of us will admit that we want to impress people, and this is what's causing us to do what we do.
You don't have to give way to careless speech or complaining.
You don't have to let your feelings get in the way of what God wants to do in your life.
The Bible says that Christians are the salt of the earth and the light of the world. On the job, in the grocery store, even among unsaved friends and family members, God's people are there to bring seasoning to an unsavory situation.
I have learned from personal experience that putting trust in God means there will be some unanswered questions. That was a hard lesson for me because I naturally want to understand everything... to know what's going on so I can feel like I'm in control.
Watch out for the joy-stealers: gossip, criticism, complaining, faultfinding, and a negative, judgmental attitude.
God never promised us a trouble-free life.
Instead of blaming everyone and everything else for your problems, pray for God to help you take an inventory of what's been on your mind so you can think about what you've been thinking about.
