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.
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.
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.
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.
True Love is the name of this week's featured post for the Grace and Truth link-up. With all the talk of love in the air, from the recent holiday, I appreciated Sherry's reminder of our greatest example of true love.
Sherry writes at, The Charm of Home. If you haven't yet had the joy of visiting this lovely blog, let me tell you, you're going to want to fix yourself a cup of tea and prepare to sit down and enjoy yourself for awhile. Her beautiful words and images are a treat.
Thank you for sharing your post with us last week at Grace and Truth, Sherry.
And now...it's time to link-up!
There's a need for boundaries when it comes to social media. I love this week's featured post for the Grace and Truth link-up because it gives us some ideas on how to do this. It's called, Social Media and Boundaries, by Ally, who writes at The Speckled Goat. I also love that she wrote about this sensitive topic in such a sweet and non-judgemental way. What the right boundary line is for each of us will look different- but we all need to be intentional about this our approach, particularly in these contentious times. I hope you'll go say hello to Ally and be encouraged as I was.
This week's featured post for the Grace and Truth link-up is called, Showing Off: A Purpose in the Choosing, by Sue Moore Donaldson, who writes at Welcome Heart. How can we show God's excellencies today? I love this question. Sue asks this and provides some great suggestions. I also love to think about being intentionally chosen by God. This post was such an encouragement to me. I hope you'll go say hello to Sue and enjoy her sweet words.
This week's featured post for the Grace and Truth link up is by Rachel Britton. It's called, Simple Steps for Recharging and Recovering. There are so many great and practical suggestions in this post. I'm really trying to be more intentional about both my prayer time and my exercise time this year, so reading this was perfect timing. I think you will be encouraged, too, so I hope you'll go check it out and say hello!
This week's featured post for the Grace and Truth link up is called, Learning to Release Fear and Embrace God, by Jenn, who writes at Embracing Life. Fear is something that I’ve been learning to let go of for most of my life. I love what Jenn wrote about letting go of the things that aren’t good for us so that we can embrace what God has for us. It's an encouraging post. I hope you'll go say hello to Jenn and be blessed by her words as I was.
