The Secret of Being Content (When Life is Skunky)

 

Kris WolfeClarksville, TN – Work. Work. Work. Study. Complain. Work. Worry. Clean. Write. Crumble. Cry. Work. This has been my existence.

My dogs were skunked last night. Not a little: like warfare of liquid fire raining upon our home. More good news: one of my dogs is nursing nine one-week-old pups.

Keep Your Eye On The Prize

 

Leap-of-Faith-Ministries1Clarksville, TN – When your eyes are examined, the doctor holds a card in front of you and says, “Keep your eyes here, but tell me when you see my other hand.” Then he brings his hand from behind your head and pretty soon, out of the corner of your eye you see that hand.

That is the capacity God has given our physical eyes, and also our spiritual vision. We can be looking at Christ, and at the same time, out the corner of our eyes, there is something else trying to catch our attention. «Read the rest of this article»

 

Count It All Joy

 

Leap of Faith MinistriesClarksville, TN – “Dear brothers, is your life full of difficulties and temptations? Then be happy for when the way is rough your patience has a chance to grow.

Authority to Submission (Part 2)

 

Leap of Faith MinistriesClarksville, TN – Do you believe God made you the way you are for a reason? And put you where you are because He wants you to be there? Stop and think about it.

If you don’t know much about waves you may try to run from it, but it will suck you back and throw you down with a thundering force. Helplessly you tumble around, gasping, and fighting for breath until you emerge in shallow water, bruised and dropping like a drowning kitten. «Read the rest of this article»

 

Cuss words and Dirty talk

 

Leap of Faith Ministries

Clarksville, TN – It is said that “swearing is the feeble attempt of an ignorant mind to express itself forcefully.” Anyone who has to use four letter words continually shows that he has a very limited vocabulary, a lack of class, and a vulgar thought life.

It’s interesting that when God gave the Ten Commandments to the people of Israel, one of them was directed against the natural tendency of fallen human nature to use the name of God as an oath. “You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain, for the Lord will not leave him unpunished who takes His name in vain”. (Exodus 20:7) «Read the rest of this article»

 

Critical Tongue

 

Leap of Faith MinistriesClarksville, TN – With our critical thoughts surrendered to God, we must give Him our tongue as well and ask Him to control it. How many times have you said something you wish you hadn’t?

The tongue has put people in trouble since the beginning of time. “…the tongue is a small thing, but what enormous change it can do… And the tongue is set on fire by hell itself, and can turn our whole lives into a blazing flame of destruction and disaster… but no man can tame the tongue. It is always ready to pour out its deadly poison. (James 3:5,6,8) «Read the rest of this article»
