Weekly Pruning – Not Perfect, but Loved…
Not Perfect, but Loved – Do you believe you are fully loved by God, just as you are?
On a Personal Note – When God leads you to Dry Places…
Instead of punishing the Israelites for their lack of faith, God gives them the cheat code for the tests ahead. God instructs them to listen to His voice and follow His commandments. That’s it. Sounds simple. But simple isn’t always easy.
Perfectionism, Not Required…
God does not require perfectionism.
But, it’s interesting how we allow perfectionism to ruin our time studying the Word of God. We make rules about the environment we have to set. The amount of time that we have to devote to reading and a whole host of other stipulations. We allow being perfect to make us feel inadequate when our study time looks nothing like we envisioned OR we fail to even start because we’re paralyzed.
Encouragement for Today
There are moments when we feel alone—seasons when we feel like God has forgotten us and doesn’t hear our cries. We are in a state of despair and wondering if we will ever get to the other side of our situation. There are times when we have to remember the truth.
