You’ve got a problem, and you can’t avoid it any longer.
You have to face the facts. You have more bills than you do money to pay them. But that’s not even the biggest problem. As the funds have diminished, so has your faith.
If I were a silent voice inside your head helping you to build healthy relationships, you might hear me say: “Meet people where they are.”
Don’t try to "change them," "fix them," or "correct them," but instead recognize where they are at that very moment.
For people of faith, prayer is supposed to come naturally. Right?
Actually, no. We grow in prayer, just like every other part of a Christ-following life. And luckily for us, we have some excellent teachers available to us in the Scripture.
If we could have coffee today, I’d say, “Our worry can’t change the world. Only God can.”
Luke 2:25 says, “Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to your life?”
Frederick August Bartoli went from France to Egypt in 1856. He was awestruck by the grandeur of the pyramids and the beauty of the stately Sphinx. His artistic mind was stimulated.
While on this trip he met another visitor to Egypt, Ferdinand de Lesseps. Ferdinand was there to sell an idea to cut a canal from the Red Sea to the Mediterranean Sea. August was taken by the concept. He decided to design a lighthouse to stand at the entrance to this canal.
