What are the ways God devised that brought you back to Him? He longs for a relationship with you and me so much so that He gave His one and only Son to reconcile us back to Him!
The most hope-filled people on earth are God’s people! Still, there are times and seasons in our lives when our hope spills out. You may have felt that recently or even feel that way now, and you wonder where God is.
Crisis time is God’s time! When we are at our lowest, God is at work in ways we cannot see.
No matter who we are or what we’ve done, no one is beyond God’s grace to restore their lives!
Your failure is never final when you experience the grace of the risen Lord! He fully restores!
Making the best use of my time, like this verse expresses, results in joy – not stress. When I use my time with what I’m passionate about, it makes my heart sing!
While multi-tasking has become popular, studies have shown that multi-taskers are really suckers for irrelevancy. Imagine a pilot or surgeon multi-tasking for a minute! How would you feel paying a consultant and, while he is consulting you, he’s texting and checking on his fantasy football team or shuffling through papers for his next client? The secret to a fulfilled life is focus – not multi-tasking.
Do you ever feel like your spiritual life is not making progress? It can happen when we get discouraged, exhausted and overwhelmed. You’re not alone if you’ve felt that way before or if you feel that way now. When I feel that way, I’m reminded of the promise in this verse, and it gives me hope and confidence that God is not finished.
Steve Uzzell said, “Multitasking is merely the opportunity to screw up more than one thing at the time.” Studies show that trying to focus on more than one thing causes a 40% drop in productivity. (That’s 2.1 hours a day that’s lost due to interruptions or distractions.)
The goal of every good parent is to see their children grow up into healthy, mature adults. Years of prayer, training and nurturing are part of the process. When Paul was writing to the Christ followers in the region of Galatia, he knew they were struggling in their spiritual growth.
