4 Things You Need to Know About Your Destiny

Posted by Alan George on Oct 6, 2015 9:52:45 AM

Once I gave my life to Christ, I was curious to know what God had in store for my life and my future—in other words, my destiny. I remember one day going through some notes that my dad had written down and saw one about knowing your destiny. Since then, it has served as a blueprint for life. I’d like to share those notes with you here, and I’ve added a few of my thoughts as well.

How to Be Grateful For the Marriage You Already Have

Posted by Jason Inman on Oct 5, 2015 9:30:00 AM

Sometimes someone says something that stops you in your tracks. Other times someone says something that stops you in your tracks, then proceeds kick you in the pants in a way that sends you flying onto the track you should have been walking down in the first place. Craig recently provided me with one of those moments when he said, “Don’t let what you want rob you of what you have.” Meaning, when you’re eyes are on some other prize, you might just be losing what you’ve already won. He went on to illustrate that most of us are so blessed that we upgrade things—TV’s, cars, houses, and relationships—that still work.

How do you know you’re out of control?  

Posted by Steven Roberts on Sep 29, 2015 12:30:00 PM

It’s so hard seeing someone you care about continually make bad decisions that wreck their life. As an outsider, their errors can be really easy to see. Maybe you've even tried to offer help or advice to someone like this, but they never seem to listen. They think they know what they’re doing and it will all work out fine. But time and time and time again, they keep digging a deeper hole.

Is All This Encouragement Really Necessary?

Posted by YouVersion on Sep 28, 2015 2:30:00 PM

So, how often do we need encouragement, anyway? Is a yearly pat on the back from our employer good enough? Do our families need to hear kind words from us weekly? How needy are we, really? Turns out, we humans are pretty needy. We need food daily. We need sleep daily. Our hearts need encouragement daily, too.

Give Credit Where It's Due

Posted by Dana Byers on Sep 25, 2015 12:30:00 PM

Ludmila saw an opportunity to diversify and work smarter. She knew she'd be in her shop selling items every day. Why not take a leap of faith and offer some things that aren't office supplies to supplement the seasons when sales are slower? Summer - inflatable mattresses for people in her area welcoming guests into town. Winter - artificial Christmas trees and decorations. When we asked her how her leap of faith went, she said, "Praise God, we've nearly sold it all." Give credit where it's due - to God - when you've taken a leap of faith and He's provided. God used Ludmila to provide items her community needs, and He blessed her in the process, too. 

Ludmila displayed a heart of gratitude for God's provision.

A Simple Way to Start Being Positive

Posted by Alan George on Sep 24, 2015 10:30:00 AM

It’s easy to fall victim to always feeling like you never have enough. Everywhere I look today, I see the opportunity to get something that is better than what I have. It could be a car, a watch, a phone, a house or anything else money can buy. I don’t know about you but this sometimes causes me to not value what I currently have.
