Getting in touch with God’s truth

I receive a magazine in the mail. In Touch, established by Dr. Stanley. I like the little magazine. I may not agree with everything I read but we aren’t supposed to just accept everything we read without first contemplating our own conclusion. Thoughts evolve and we want them to evolve with God, Truth.

I recently read a lofty headline in the magazine, it reads:

Christ promises to provide everything you need for abundant life.

In a world lathered with problems, it seems as though the author doesn’t get out of the office much.

But, I nibbled and thought a little about a few of the promises listed.

When you’re discouraged, He comforts you. (2 Cor. 1:5)

When you’re confused, He gives you wisdom. (Col 2:1-4)

When you’re rejected, he accepts you. (Rom 15:7)

When you have financial needs, He’s your provider (Phil. 4:19)

As I digest these statements, the sheer practice of getting my mind to consider a new thought is opening my mind to the provision of a promise that becomes more believable.

Inspiring person, Rosamond Carr
Not what I’d classify as a religious person, but spiritual, Rosamond Halsey Carr tells her story in her book, Land of a Thousand Hills: My Life in Rwanda. Published in 2001 and read by me last month, I recommend this book as a picture of woman’s self-realized independence, inner splendor, and ou

A star gymnast
Film, The Gabby Douglas Story (2014), captured many of the emotions that surely were experienced before medals were earned at the 2008 Olympics. Gabby’s family, already at a level of impoverishment, sacrificed for Gabby Douglas to continue training. And, although tempted, Gabby didn’t give up.
