When we start shifting our attention from God to people, we begin to expect them to meet our needs and desires in a way that only God can provide for us.   Unfortunately, we leave ourselves open for disappointment. As our emotional dependence grows, we develop expectations that they cannot or will not deliver. Those who have helped us or met our needs tend to become our champions. This is a very subtle process, and often we do not realize it…..

We are blessed to have another wonderful holiday season – with the festivities, the hustling and the bustling, and the excitement and anticipation of Thanksgiving and Christmas. As I was shopping, I noticed that people in general were happy and that the sales people were very friendly and accommodating. The holiday decorations are up and everything looks beautiful, colorful, and cheery. Decorating, shopping, and wrapping presents are high priorities for me. I enjoy giving these types of love gifts to…..

When we cry out to God, we want here-and-now answers to our prayers. When we don’t think situations are changing, then we feel rejected by God or that he is punishing us.

Maybe he sees our difficult relationships as a process that involves continuously submitting, obeying, trusting, and relying on him. Sometimes the process is brief. Sometimes it takes years and years for the process to culminate and…..

Instead of saying “Carrying God With Me…” I should say “God Carrying Me With Him Throughout My Day”.   I am so thankful that He has pursued me and has not given up on me. I consider faith to be a gift from God.   It is through faith that a person continually seeks God’s guidance, presence, wisdom, and His participation in daily life. It is because of this gift that we are able to marvel at the beautiful times and persevere…..
