What a better way to take on the New Year than by receiving a new heart and spirit in Christ? In the last part of this little mini-blog-series (Two Hearts), I talked about the two different states of heart: the heart of stone and the heart of flesh. The heart is much more than a blood-pumping organ, it is endowed with spiritual significance. As I said, it is the capsule of our personalities, the content of our consciousness, and it is the state of our mind and being. It is the crux of our spirituality. Because whatever is within our heart flows outwardly, either affecting or infecting every aspect of our lives. Continue reading “The Hardening of the Heart”
Why do bad things happen to good people? We ask ourselves that constantly. Storm clouds roll in and the skies darken. Things seem bleak. What do we do? Where do we run? What is going to happen now? We claw at any morsel of reassurance. I’m here to tell you, no matter who you are, bad things happen to you. It’s a part of life. But there is hope. Continue reading “Hurricane”
Love is something we do not understand. Or at least, we get the jist of it, but we do not comprehend its deepness or its intricacy–whilst staying simple and soothing.
This article is going to be a bit different than the usual. While it provides a lesson, I find it impossible not to include bits of my own testimony.

Among the things I write about, by far my favorite subjects are those that deal with spiritual feelings. The past few weeks have been extremely transformative for me, spiritually. Not only transformative, but incomprehensibly revealing. God has showed me issues I was never aware of before, and has given me bite-size answers at such a slow, steady pace that it has been easy for me to digest.
Among those things, God has showed me that several of my previous articles have led up to this one. I have written about looking back on our past life, experiencing spiritual dryness, and having a trapped spirit. These revelations have led me to a lesson I personally consider to be absolutely amazing, at least in my own walk with God. So now I will write about being spiritually “Frozen”.

In Matthew 6, Jesus is teaching His disciples about prayer. It is in this chapter that we receive the Lord’s Prayer, which is a model of prayer for Christians to use. It was given by Jesus to help us understand how we may communicate with the Father. Not only does it show us how we may communicate with Him, but also that we can. However, more specifically, I have been brought to one specific part of the Lord’s Prayer over and over again for a few weeks, and wanted to share it and what it means.

We tend to acknowledge God when we’re doing good but forget He’s still present when we’re doing not so good. Continue reading “Hills and Valleys”
