Storming Home - #6896
The Bible says in Hebrews 6:19, speaking of Jesus, "We have this hope as an anchor for the soul firm and secure." And it often is not until things are out of our control that we understand we were never meant to run our lives. We were created by Jesus, for Jesus. He died to bring us back to Him, and maybe He is right now using your storm to blow you right into His loving arms.

Here's an important word for us guys. Don't wait until it's a crisis to give her your attention. She may be letting it build up, because she can't find a way into your life, you're so busy. You've always got something else to do other than listen to her. Listen to her needs; listen to her heart; listen to those frustrations and problems when they're small, when they're manageable.

Maybe there's an area of your life right now that's particularly frustrating, and you've tried everything. You've worked harder, you've planned, you've used every trick you know. Could it be you're missing God's blessing on it? Is there in that part of your life something He can't bless: an attitude, a secret sin, a relationship, a method you are using to go about getting it, an untruth maybe? So often the answer to frustration is not greater effort, it's greater obedience.
True Woman: When overlooking is a good thing . . .
There are many things we get hung up on that can be let go. When frustrated by an oversight or blunder, and when tempted to unload a criticism, first stop and ask yourself these questions.
True Woman: It’s Impossible to Be a True Woman!
“I can’t take this anymore!” How many times has your frustration level risen to the point that you truly believed you couldn’t handle one more thing?
Don’t be afraid of change!
Have you hit a wall in your spiritual life or your evangelism efforts? Maybe it's time to make a change.
How to Miss What You Were Made For - #6006
There comes this day in your life when Jesus goes by, offering Himself to you to be your personal Savior from your personal sin. There comes this day when He moves your heart to care about the sin in your life, to see that it will cost you heaven, and to understand that His dying on that cross was to pay the awful price for your sin.
Don’t be offended!
Have you ever wished the Christian life were easier? Life’s everyday challenges don’t evaporate the minute we profess faith in Christ, and it’s easy to grow frustrated when difficult questions or repeated temptations continue to vex us...
