GOD IS FOR YOU!

Jan 25, 2021

“Is it easiest to trust God in the midst of trials or happy times?”

The question was asked to a group attending a youth group camping trip.  “During the happy times” is what I expected to hear from everyone, however it wasn’t so.

It was probably split 50/50, actually, depending on how each person dealt with trials, what they’d been through, and so on. One of the girls spoke up and said, “When times are good, I just worry about all the bad things that could happen. When I’m going through difficult times, the only thing I am able to cling to is God’s promises.”

Fast forward to now and we are all facing a global pandemic. It seems important now to understand the last bit of that wisdom. Time to cling to Scripture, and begin studying what God’s Word says about suffering.

Psalm 56 —particularly the last half:

“You have kept count of my tossings; put my tears in your bottle.  Are...

DO NOT BE ANXIOUS!!!!

DO NOT BE ANXIOUS!!!!

Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.  
Philippians 4:6-7 (NLT).
 
Statistics show that about 85% of the things that spend time worrying about actually never take place! So much of our energy is spent worrying about things that by the end of the day or the end of the week will never happen.
 
Anxiety is nothing more than fear-based and is definitely not from God. In fact, scripture tells us that there is a spirit that impacts us and causes us to worry. That spirit is the “spirit of fear”.
 
For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.
2 Timothy 1:7 (NLT).  
 
The enemy can really use anxiety in many ways for the negative. One...

TRUSTING GOD WITH THE WHAT IF'S

Jan 21, 2021

Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God's elect? It is God that justifieth.  

Romans 8:33

Life is littered with what ifs.

What if there’s not enough money? Or resources to go around? Or the economy doesn’t improve? What if the person we’ve trusted breaks her promise? Or doesn’t fulfill his commitment? Or drops the ball completely? What if our health begins to fail? Or our loved ones pass away? Or we find ourselves alone?

Uncertainty surrounds us. The possibility of change can raise endless what if questions, causing us to worry. We all face legitimate challenges that need to be overcome and whenever we allow fear to take to root, we create space for worry and anxiety to set up shop in our lives. Once they begin working, they don’t want to stop.

Given enough time, worry can strangle the life out of us. In fact, the origin of the word worry when it first appeared in Old English meant “to strangle.” Over the centuries, it transitioned...

GOD LOVES US ALL

Jan 20, 2021

GOD LOVES US ALL

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son,
that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
John 3:16

He created each of us by hand, and each one of us is unique. Jesus came to seek and to save the lost, so we feel compelled to do the same. All of this wonderful diversity means we hold a variety of views. At Women of Faith we focus on what unites us. We choose to love and to offer grace to one another.

We are here to laugh with you, cry with you, and walk beside you on your faith journey. By having a relationship with God, we choose to encourage you to deepen your spiritual walk with Him. If you are in a different place right now, we choose to introduce you to a community who loves you more than you know.  

The bottom line is this:  

God loves us.  All of us.  And He chooses for us all to love one another.

CONFRONTING THE HEART OF A CRITIC

Jan 18, 2021

Confronting the Heart of a Critic

The phrase, “Sticks and stones may break my bones and words can never hurt me!” couldn’t be further from the truth. Words can be catastrophic, tearing through your heart like a tornado roaring down a residential street. While there may not be any visible destruction, the damage to your spirit can be just as devastating as a row of demolished homes.

Although the initial sting of harsh words is evident, you may be unaware of the lingering effects. Overly critical words leave you with hurt feelings and a poor self-image. Being wounded by someone with a critical spirit often changes how you see yourself. God holds us all accountable for how we use our words  especially the ones that hurt. Critical words don’t come from a wise heart, nor do they reflect God’s heart. Only He can heal your spirit and teach you how to respond to criticism. He’s waiting to enrich your heart with...

PERFECTIONISM: AN UNREACHABLE GOAL

Jan 15, 2021

The compelling need to be more than what you are capable of ever becoming is the driving motivation behind perfectionism. It stems from deep insecurity, a gnawing fear that being the woman God made you to be is somehow not good enough.

The longing for absolute perfection is rooted in the lost recollection of paradise. Within every believer is an internal barometer of how things ought to be, a deep yearning for the perfection that only heaven will bring. Something inside knows that no matter how good things are—they should be better. One day they will be, but not now. Knowing how it could be while living with how it actually is often causes an unhealthy tension.

Understanding the innate desire for perfection can lead to a deeper anticipation and hope in eternity. It also helps release the demand that life in the present must satisfy all longings.

At the same time, the Lord calls each believer to pursue wholeness and soundness of spirit—concepts that are frequently...

JOHN: START HERE

JOHN: Start Here

If you met someone who is investigating the claims of Christ, or is unsure of whether or not to believe in Him, or has never had the opportunity to come to know Him personally, you might encourage her to read the Gospel of John.  The basics of our faith are taught in this book.  It reveals a true picture of our loving Lord.  John even explains to the reader why this book was written in John 20:31: “These are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in His name.” That, in a nutshell, is precisely why the Gospel of John is invaluable.  It’s one of our greatest gifts.

ZECHARIAH: WORDS TO REMEMBER

Jan 09, 2021

God’s people faced a daunting task . . . rebuilding the temple.  Their resources were limited, and their motivation waned.  We can relate, as we’ve faced challenges that seem impossible.  Such was the challenge of the Israelites.  They looked forward to the coming of the Messiah and had an earnest desire to be ready.  The job however, was too difficult.

God gave Zechariah perfect words to motivate them, and in those same words we find hope for today: “This is the word of the Lord: . . . ‘Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ says the LORD of hosts” (Zech. 4:6).

There is nothing we face, nor imagine ever facing, for which these words of the Lord do not apply.  They are ours to remember every day, no matter what.
