How many times in the scriptures are the words “Fear not” spoken by Jesus Christ? He speaks it like it’s a simple thing, like there’s an On/Off switch that can stop the fear we feel. So is He wrong? Or can it really be as simple as Christ makes it sound?
The way we think can be very different from how God thinks. We face challenges in our lives and wonder how God could punish us with those difficulties. God, on the other hand, understands how those challenges will actually benefit us.

It’s a perspective that we all want happiness but live in sadness, misery, depression, etc. And that’s how life is, so there’s nothing we […]
Think about the last time you cooked an egg. Maybe you hard-boiled it and turned it into egg salad. Or you fried it so you could dip toast and bacon into the yolk. You might have scrambled the egg, or mixed the egg into brownie batter or cookie dough. When you cooked this egg, you […]
I don’t know about you, but I am really good at thinking about all the ways I need to change to be a better person. All the things I am bad at, or mess up, or quit. These things pile up in my head, and it can be pretty hard to get rid of them. […]
