Each Friday a growing group of Christian bloggers gather here to share what the Lord has been doing in our lives. Blogger or not, you are welcome in this place.
If you’re a blogger, feel free to link up a Christian living post. If you’re a non-blogger, we invite you to visit the linkers and be encouraged in your walk with Christ.
And each week, I am honored to select a post to feature. This week, I’m featuring two excellent reads.
Nicole from Faith, Love, and Chocolate writes,
“Satan uses shame all of the time to drive us farther away from God. Shame prevents us from having the intimate relationship with God that He created us for. We keep ourselves at a distance thinking He could never really love us the way we are.
We don’t tell our stories or our testimonies because we’re ashamed.
But that is why Jesus came. He came to be our savior, our redeemer. He came to restore us. And he came while we were still sinners.”
I do hope you’ll visit Nicole to read her excellent post on shame, especially if you struggle with it like I do~ smile.
The second post I chose was one on worry. Dawn shared such great suggestions on dealing with worry that I had to share her’s as well. Dawn says,
“I’m someone who worries too much. It’s not something I’m proud of. But some years ago, I realized that not only was my habit of worrying constantly taking away from the quality of my life but it was also sinful, demonstrating a lack of trust in my sovereign God who is in control. So I brought that bad habit to God in prayer, asked for forgiveness, and then asked for the strength and ability to overcome this problem. By the grace of God, he is answering this prayer.”
