FALLING OUT OF LOVE!

Posted:  Sunday, 01 December 2013 18:02 Written by
  The occurrence of falling out of love has been embraced in our culture as normal. We all know of couples who end their relationships because they claim they no longer love their spouse. How often have children heard from one of their parents...."mom and dad are going to get a divorce sweety, we just don't love each other anymore. But mommy and dad still love you, it's not your fault...it just happens some times." As a side note, such children are taught not to trust love...to fear rejection and abandonment. They learn to set up strongholds to protect themselves…

WHO DO I SEE IN THE MIRROR?

WHO DO I SEE IN THE MIRROR? I have spoken much about mankind being in the image and likeness of God. It is such an important part of our identity understanding. To the measure that I have not embraced it in my understanding (that is, where I have no revelation) yet am trying to be Christ-like is the measure to which I am only left trying to be someone that I do not believe I am. How can that possibly work? What benefit can that be? There are many scriptures that speak of mankind being in His image and after…

  DOES LOVE MAKE US WEAK AND VULNERABLE? We have all at some point heard someone or perhaps spoken ourselves, "I will never let anyone get that close to me again, I can't go through that pain again." Sadly to many individuals love equates to rejection, pain, suffering and disappointment. The interpreted anguish seems to out way the joy in it. For the most part in our culture we have defined love to be affection received rather then affection given. Let me explain. We have made our sense of self worth to be conditional on approval and acceptance given to…

THE BEGINNING

  THE BEGINNINGGenesis 1 gives us an incredible thought-provoking account of the beginning, our creation. The accredited writer Moses tells us the earth was without form, an empty waste. Cold, without life, no sun, moon or stars, covered with deep water and in complete and utter darkness. Yet God had something in mind. At a divinely appointed time, His Spirit hovered over the entire expanse, brooding over it as a mother hen broods over her chicks to incubate them to hatch. The Lord began to speak forth His will: “So shall My word be that goes forth out of My…

WHEN I SEE HIS LOVE, I SEE WHO I AM!

Most of us know the right way to answer the question, do we need God...yes! But do we live out our days in the understanding of why? I am not speaking of religion here....we do not need religion but we do need God. Actually religion is an obstacle to the true understanding of why we need Him. God is not about rules and regulations, He is not about performance and all the "I have to" expressions. It's easy to relate to needing Him in times of trouble for healing, for our finances, for our marriages and the likes. But there…
