What is Spiritual Wellness?

What is Spiritual Wellness?

My relationship with God is important to me.  However, it’s not always been that way.  I had to go through some very difficult times and discover I had no where else to turn before I rededicated my life to Christ. However, there are still times when life gets in the way and I become so busy that I realize I am neglecting our time together. Spiritual wellness is “a matter of values and beliefs that provide a purpose in our…

Transitional Friday: When God Answers Prayers

Transitional Friday: When God Answers Prayers

        I’ve discussed discouragement and waiting for God, but eventually He will answer? However, what happens once you finally have prayers answered? I’ve had prayers answered that showed me this was not God’s will for my life and took me down a dark path.  I’ve also had prayers answered that only God could orchestrate and proved this was God’s will for my life.

Transitional Friday: Ecclesiastes 3: 18-22, The Purpose of Life

Transitional Friday: Ecclesiastes 3: 18-22, The Purpose of Life

We are wrapping up our look at Ecclesiastes 3 and a season for all times. I also said to myself, “As for humans, God tests them so that they may see that they are like the animals—God tests us to show us that we have the beastly quality of animals and will prey upon others.  Surely the fate of human beings is like that of the animals—man is frail      the same fate awaits them both—their existence is temporary As…

Transitional Friday: Ecclesiastes 3: 11-14, The Fear of the Lord

Transitional Friday: Ecclesiastes 3: 11-14, The Fear of the Lord

For the past two weeks we have been discussing God’s time and that there is a season for everything. He has made everything beautiful in its time—think about how flowers are planted and in their own time become beautiful.  The same can be said for circumstances in our lives.     He has also set eternity in the human heart—God wired us to long for eternity and to want the blessings only eternity can bring.  God made us for himself…

Transitional Friday: For Everything There Is A Season

Transitional Friday: For Everything There Is A Season

In Ecclesiastes 3, we are told that for everything there is a season.  There are seasons of life that we love and seasons that we can’t wait to get finished with.  While we wait for the next transition, the waiting is often the most difficult aspect of our situation.  In our humanness we wonder what God is doing, why it’s taking so long and when He’ll be finished and life will be better.  At least, that’s what I wonder. So…

Discovering My Life Purpose

Discovering My Life Purpose

Have you ever wondered what your life purpose is?  Did you know that God made each of us for a purpose?  We were made in God’s own image and with a purpose. Only recently have I begun to question and seek what my purpose is.  Seeking these answers has made me wonder how my life would be different, if I’d known this years ago. Did you know that God has a purpose for each and every life?  Psalm 138:8 says,…
