Silence & Prayer | A Meditation on Psalm 23

Silence & Prayer | A Meditation on Psalm 23

Most of us feel an agitation of sorts. We can't quite put our finger on it.

Why do I feel scattered and frustrated? Why do I feel this bizarre unrest and anxiety? What is it? And why can't I seem to get rid of it?

“We live in a world starved for solitude, silence, and private: and therefore starved for meditation and true friendship.” - C.S. Lewis

Mankind is crying out "Quiet, please!"

This blog post is about silence, meditation & Psalm 23. It also includes an exercise on meditation and practicing the presence of God.

Going Bold on Offense as a Christian

Going Bold on Offense as a Christian

 

Have you ever considered that there is an offensive posture as a Christian?

We commonly speak about defending ourselves and others but maybe there is a way to go on the offensive in our lives. Trouble comes to us all. In fact, Jesus told us that we would have tribulations.

However, He gave us a promise that would sustain and bolster us up during times of trouble. This post is about what to do when the storm rages around you and who will always be there.

How to Know If God Loves You (Even When You Don't Feel Like He Does)

How to Know If God Loves You (Even When You Don't Feel Like He Does)

A common question that we ask ourselves is, "Does God really love me?" We often feel uncertain about if God loves us and most of this is due to us believing that God only loves us when we are performing well. Performance forces us to ride a roller coaster of emotion, one day feeling like God loves and the next day not feeling His love. 

But the truth of Gospel shatters our skepticism and fear of punishment from God. There is one solid fact on which you can rest your faith and it's the cross. By looking at the cross you can rest assured that God loves you, regardless of your current feeling. 

Nothing can erase the fact that He laid down His life for you out of love.
