“And I pray this: that your love will keep on growing in knowledge and every kind of discernment, so that you may approve the things that are superior and may be pure and blameless in the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ to the glory and praise of God” (Philippians 1:9-11).
This week on the blog: How to Overcome Doubt When We Struggle With Imposter Syndrome
STACKING ROCKS | ANDREA SANBORN
“Like those determined people from centuries past, we too have been born into a harsh and troubled world. The rocks in our way are now more figurative than literal, but the challenge they present is similar. I have struggled with life’s stony ground. We all have… But I have watched others build something beautiful out of their suffering.”
A unique reflection on an encouraging truth with a visually-appealing literary device called a chiasm. I enjoyed learning something new about the familiar historical narrative of Noah and the ark.
BECOME A WOMAN OF WISE WORDS | CAROLYN LACEY
“It can be hard to move past the feelings of embarrassment or shame over the times when we’ve spoken without thinking or stayed silent when we should have spoken. We can feel paralyzed by our imperfect speech in the past… But we can learn to speak with wisdom from heaven that will make our earthly conversations fruitful rather than frustrating, helpful rather than harmful.”
LEARNING THE ART OF CONTENTMENT… AND DISCONTENTMENT | COLIN SMITH
“However much you have, there are others who have more. However little you have, there are others who have less… However much or little God has trusted to you, there will be seasons of life when you have less and seasons of life when you have more.”
