Do you like to feel in control of your problems?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Donald Johnston yesterday. 5 Replies

Do you like to feel in control of your problems? Why or why not? What do we risk by fully turning our problems over to God? What could we gain? How do we fully turn them over? Is it possible?

 

One of my favorite quotes is, "You're not brave, if you're not scared."

His death was in exchange for your life.

Have you ever examined yourself on the question of whether or not you turned to Christ out of fear for yourself, your eternal destiny, and what He can give you, or because you were truly sorry for the sinful life you've lived and what it cost Jesus to be your Redeemer, the One Who ransomed you, paid the price for your release from sin and its consequences and you love Him?His death was in exchange for your life. "Through His blood" means by His death (Colossians 1:14).One of the questions that…See More

The one thing everyone truly needs is Jesus.

Well, somehow I made it through this Sunday morning's church service. Just kidding ...The focus as usual was on God and exalting Him.Love and thankfulness to God were apparent in those who participated in leading the service ... through the songs and communion, through prayer and the reading of the Scriptures.Truly, for the time I'm there, they make it easy for me to remove my eyes from my own problems and focus on God.This morning's Scripture reading was Philippians 4:4-9, and the sermon title…See More

I ask things of God while knowing that God Himself has need of nothing. Still, I wonder if there is anything I can give to God?



When I pray, I ask for His will. I pray for safety and protection for my family, that He will guard their lives, shed light upon their paths, and make their hearts happy, and I ask Him to save my lost loved ones, and help those I know who are struggling in their faith or facing hardships and loss.



I know I have nothing with which to use for… Continue

Can people love someone whatever is true about them?

Yes! by the renewing the mind.

The UN-renewed Mine!!

#1. An UN-renewed mine is always waging war against unbelief.

#2. Ever praying for faith, but never arriving.

#3. Talking unbelief, yet struggling to get faith,

#4. Confessing failure, at the same time, confessing faith in the Word, yet denying it in action,

#5. Trying to believe, yet never acting on the Word.

 This is the attributes of Love, "God's kind of love" that we are to have as a Christian.

1 Cor. 13:4-8 Amp. Affirmation

God is Love

Because I walk in love, and love lives in me

#1. I endure long

#2. I’m patient and kind,

#3. I’m never envious, nor do I boil over with jealously

#4. I’m never boastful or vainglorious

#5. I never display myself haughtily

#6. I’m not conceited, arrogant or inflated with pride

#7. I’m never rude, or unmannerly, and I never act unbecomingly

#8. I never insist on my own rights, or my own ways

#9. I am not self-seeking

#10. I’m never touchy, fretful, or resentful

#11. I take no account of an evil done to me

#12. I pay no attention to a suffered wrong

#13. I do not rejoice at injustice, and unrighteousness

#14 But I do rejoice when right and truth prevail

#15. I bear up under anything, and everything that comes

#16. I am ever ready to believe the best of everyone

#17. My hopes are fade-less under all circumstances

#18. I endure everything without weakening

#19. For the love in me never fails, never fades out, becomes obsolete, or comes to an end
