The Life Of A Man Who Followed All The Religious Regulations . . . But Missed Out On A Relationship With God
Some churches tend to celebrate rules. A list of do’s and don’ts that dictate how we should live. Don’t smoke, don’t drink . . . and by all means, make sure you’re in church every Sunday!
Terms like guilt and shame are not usually something brought up in daily conversation. And yet, we’ve all felt them at one time or another. Perhaps you feel weighed down by something you’ve done in the past.
Have you ever experienced moments of clear understanding . . . when you caught a glimpse of God’s character?
One of the most difficult things to understand about faith . . . is the necessity to believe in the unseen. We prefer to trust what is tangible and solid.
When disagreements arise in marriage . . . sometimes it’s easier to keep quiet rather than argue. Not seeing eye to eye with your spouse?
Communication is more than just talking about the weather. Often it involves divulging our most private thoughts . . . at the risk of someone else’s scrutiny.
Anger isn’t unique to marriage . . . but it can certainly be intensified within the close relationship between husband and wife. Perhaps you’re dealing with a particular “hot spot” in your relationship.
When disagreements flare up in relationships . . . you can’t always shy away from confrontation. Sometimes the issue is just too big to let go. Struggling through an issue with a loved one?
Perhaps you know what it feels like to be trapped in a bad habit or wrong behavior. Sin blinds us to the truth.
Life rarely turns out as we imagined. As the years roll by and dreams go unfulfilled . . . it’s easy to sink into discouragement.
There are times when life just doesn’t seem fair. When bad things happen to good people. It’s in those moments that doubts can creep in.
