Walking by the Spirit

Galatians 5:16 tells Christians, “Walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh.” So how does one walk by the Spirit?

Before I got to him, an older lady came up, obviously angry, and said, “This is all the fault of those people,” pointing to a house with several tree limbs down around the yard - none touching the power lines.

What is God’s will for my life?

Have you ever found it hard to discern God’s will for your life? Some people confidently live life in what they believe is God’s will while others are so paralyzed by the question that they accomplish nothing with their life. We all want to make the right choices and no one hopefully wants to waste their life. Knowing God’s general will for your life will help you discover the specific steps you should take. I believe there are basic questions you must ask yourself when trying to know God’s will for your life.

I just love me, and you too

It is difficult to love others as we love ourselves. Some of us may think we are not worthy of being loved, or are of no value, which can affect the way we look at others or consider their value.
