The Unlovable Wife / The Unrespectable Husband

 

Kris WolfeClarksville, TN – When I say life is hard sometimes it’s so you will know that nobody’s life is perfect and so that you will pray for me as (perhaps) I have prayed for you (maybe without even mentioning it to you).

But I don’t deny that I am blessed. Here are a few things I am thankful for right now: My 13 year old for taking up for his brother this week, my 10 year old for being intentional about reading the Bible (he decided to study Mark this week), the time and money to workout (my reprieve!), and my husband who loves me when I am mean, critical and (feeling) unlovable.

Tough weekend. Life is hard sometimes «Read the rest of this article»

Leap of Faith MinistriesClarksville, TN – Do you think it would be easier to be perfect if you weren’t surrounded by difficult people? Think about it though, why are people the way they are?

As children of God we can have authority over our circumstances. Think of yourself standing in the surf with the water up to your armpits and here comes a big wave. 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»

 


Authority to Submission

 

Leap of Faith MinistriesClarksville, TN – There are some things in Christianity that are harder to understand then other things. Submission is one of them.

When we become Christians, one of the first things we are told about our new life is that “But as many as received Him, to them gave the power to become the sons of God…” (John 1:12 KJV).

When we first discover that verse we think “Wonderful, all that power is mine!” Then we find out even better news, “and if children, then heirs, heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ…” (Romans 8:17 NKJV) Just imagine being joint heirs with the Son of God who said “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.” (Matthew 28:18 NKJV) «Read the rest of this article»
