This week's featured post for the Grace and Truth Link-Up is both practical and encouraging. It's called, The Power of Prayer in Your Finances, by Rosemarie, who writes at Faith Filled Debt Journey. God cares about all the little details of our lives, even our finances. I hope you'll pop over and say hello to Rosemarie and be blessed by her words as I was.
I’ve had the chance over the past few weeks to talk to many of you who are stuck in some really difficult situations.
In the past few days, I’ve spoken with one person who would like to leave their job, one person who'd like to change churches, and another person who’d like to get a raise for the extra workload they have taken on at their job.
All of these situations require wisdom, delicate handling, and much prayer.
In this week's featured post for the Grace and Truth link-up, Sheila, who writes at Candidly Christian, shares a powerful story about shame and the lies we sometimes believe. This post is called, Redefine Your Self Worth By Renewing Your Mind in Jesus. It's so true. We need to renew our minds in Christ each day. Otherwise, we can easily start to believe lies that destroy our self-worth. I hope you'll pop over, say hello, and be blessed by Sheila's words as I was.
Sometimes I struggle with being fully present and listening well to my children. There are so many distractions! But I never regret it when I wait to speak and listen first. This week's featured post for the Grace and Truth link-up is called Proactive Parenting: Cultivating the Art of Listening, by Juby, who writes at Stuff of Heaven. I hope you'll go, say hello, and be encouraged as I was.
Thank you for sharing your post with us last week at Grace and Truth, Juby.
From the time they were very small, we taught our children to pray.
We prayed at meals, at bedtime, and when a fire truck or an ambulance would go by.
As far as our kids were concerned, prayer was as normal as eating, sleeping, and taking a bath. It was part of our lives – an essential activity in our daily routines.
So, it shouldn’t surprise me that our children took prayer seriously.
This week's featured post for Grace and Truth is called, Unlocking the Door, by Joan, who writes at The Beauty in His Grip. Joan writes about the freedom that only forgiveness can bring to those who have been hurt. I loved her challenging words and I encourage you to go, say hello, and be blessed by her writing as I was.
According to 2010 report from Pew Research Center, nearly 80% of Americans believe in miracles. I believe this is because it’s what they’ve observed- either directly or because they’ve heard about miracles from people they trust. I know this is true for me. I can’t deny what I’ve seen and experienced.
This week's featured post for the Grace and Truth link-up is called, True Religion in Four Letters, by Debbie Wilson of Refreshing Faith. These are such wise words from Debbie. The word, religion, has taken on a negative connotation, but true religion, as described in the Bible, is a beautiful thing.
