This month, I’m starting a new feature on the blog – Friday Favorites. I read a lot – other blogs, articles, research, books, ingredients lists on food in the grocery store. Here’s what I loved lately.
“As important as Bible study is to our Christian lives, it doesn’t secure our relationship with God. The beauty of the gospel is that we are not saved through our method of study, how long we study the Bible, or how often we study the Bible. “
My blogging friend, Bev, has written this insightful and important post about the answer to spiritual complacency. What do we do when our passion for the Lord has dwindled? How do we fan the flame so we’re living for Him out of love instead of obligation?
This a real and raw post from a mama of a child with autism. She doesn’t shy away from the challenges, yet she so beautifully exemplifies what it means to align our thoughts with God’s Word. Be encouraged by her reflection on the story of the widow in 1 Kings 17.
Susan Lafferty shares what her time with God looks like every day – no matter where she is. I love how she’s kept it so simple and practical. She shares my heart when it comes to the Bible – we cannot live without it.
“Whether we are battling depression or trying to encourage someone who is, we must remember three truths in the face of depression’s lies.”
“Have you ever been praying for something, but then you realize you keep talking about the situation as if nothing is going to change? Sometimes it’s really hard to believe things will change. Disappointments in the past can color the way we view our present circumstance.”
On My Playlist
The Gospel Coalition shared a playlist of top worship songs of the 2010s. I was familiar with most of them, but there were a few that were new to me. I’ve been listening to their playlist on Spotify all week.
