Why do great societies fall? Many studies list the disintegration of the family, sexual immorality, entitlement, and other issues. At the root of all changes that lead to the downfall, however, is one character trait: pride.
How often do you look to others when you have a decision to make? I see this happening all too often today, especially with the prevelance of social media. Looking to others to solve our problems deprives us of the ability to learn and grow and become spiritually self-reliant.
Living in the world today, most of us experience anxiety and overwhelm on a daily basis. However, what we want is to feel peace. Yet we are ever busy, going and doing. When we do finally have a few minutes to sit and rest, we choose to watch TV or get on social media. It's time to learn how to replace your anxiety with peace.
You've likely heard the phrase, "where you treasure is, there will your heart be also" (Matt 6:21). What do you treasure in your heart? Do you treasure material goods, as a way to show off, or do you treasure spiritual good, like peace and calmness? The things we treasure in our heart will also show up in what we do for a living, how we live our lives, and even the physical symptoms we experience.
Have you ever considered that God has a purpose for your life? There comes a time when we must decide between living the life we’ve chosen for ourselves, and living the purpose God has chosen for us. I say “must” because choosing God’s purpose for your life is necessary if you want to live a life of joy.
Repentance is a gift from a loving Father in Heaven. Repentance is the process whereby we become more like our Savior, Jesus Christ. This process of repentance purifies us so that we can be fit for the kingdom of God, to live with him again after we die.
How do you have faith in something you can't see? We live in a world where people want to see. We are so dominated by our physical sight, that if we can’t see something, we don’t believe that it exists. This is not how to have faith.
I encounter this regularly with people who haven’t experienced energy medicine. They think it’s odd or strange or even a complete farce, simply because they cannot see the energy I work with.
However, those who have faith can see these energies.
When you have faith, you can see many things that you couldn't otherwise.
Do you know how to pray, or is it uncomfortable or mysterious to you? Jesus gave us a simple example we can follow to learn how to pray. Even if you've been praying for years, you'll learn something about how to have more effective prayers.
