You’ve written your faith story. Great! And you have more to say about your walk – your journey – with Jesus. Events, life lessons, “God-incidences”, doubts, joys, struggles, Ah-ha moments. When did you see God? How did Jesus reveal himself? What insights have you gained?
We invite you to submit stories on any topic to the Jesus Journeys Blog. Just use the form in the Share link to submit your Blog Post.
You see, I never used to pray for myself. I thought I was being selfish by praying for myself, so I would always pray for everyone else but never ask God for anything for me.
All I could think about the rest of the trip was this: If Jesus is real, he must be so frustrated right now. He’s probably thinking, “I gave you the burning bush. What more proof do you need?!”
I thought I could stop when I wanted too, but that is the lie I believed without knowing I really had no willpower strong enough to overcome behaviors that were now addictions.
I didn’t want a baby at that point in my life. The father of the child said he could not afford the Child Support payments.
Church ministry is like racing: full of history and tradition, and like racing it is also changing, and not all of it is because of the pandemic. The changes affecting the church are coming from the changing society and culture around us.
These families have hope that their loved one will be relieved of pain and suffering. Hope that their loved one will have everlasting life with Jesus. Hope that they will join their loved one someday. They have hope because for them death is not the end.
From Adam and Eve we learn that God grants us the free will to choose to love him, but that he also demands our obedience. Obedience requires surrendering our will to God’s. However, our culture promotes winning, succeeding, rugged individualism, entrepreneurial spirit, and doing it “my way.” Let’s face it, nobody wants to lose, submit, give up, or cave in.
Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything; tell God your needs, and don’t forget to thank him for his answers. If you do this, you will experience God’s peace, which is far more wonderful than the human mind can understand. His peace will keep your thoughts and your hearts quiet and at rest as you trust in Christ Jesus.
One of the things that will help this worthy ministry catch on is if we share with individuals and churches everything we know and give them the tools to share with others.
Tithing 10 percent of your income is an old fashioned, out-of-date, church tradition. These days it’s very expensive raising a family. I need that extra money.
Mom died at age 53. When we were going through her stuff we found those gloves. Old and blackened – hardly any red color left. There was a lot of love in those old gloves: a young boy for his mother, and the mother’s memory and love.
Everyone has a story to share…
Did a life crisis draw you closer to Jesus, or did your faith grow steadily over time? Our mission is to help ordinary Christians become comfortable sharing personal faith stories. We believe a relationship with Jesus has blessed our lives and that Jesus calls us to reach out to the least, the last, and the lost in the world.
