Fake News

I’ve been seeing some interesting stuff about fake news. It’s not surprising to me that there’s an increase in fake news since the regular news seems to have some questionable assumptions & untrustworthy conclusions.
What we want is true news – stuff that’s objective & accountable. We want to listen / see news that has been researched & proven to be reliable. We want news that’s proven to be balanced & accurate over long amounts of time.
But let’s never forget or ignore that Good News is ground zero. And here’s the Good News:

  • Jesus loves you
  • Jesus doesn’t change
  • Jesus is sovereign

Regardless of the fake-ness or truth of the news that’s reported, the Good News is reliable, immutable & eternal!

Did God Say?

This question is massively significant for us everyday. I say that because it was the starter question the serpent asked Eve in the Garden of Eden & it was the beginning of original sin.
So do we know what God’s Word says? Eve kind of knew, but she’s wasn’t totally clear & confident with her reply to this question & I think that’s when the enemy gets a toehold with us.
Sometimes we kind of know God’s Word, but if we’re super honest, it would be very helpful to know God’s Word better 🙂
Here are some questions to consider:
Do you ever struggle to know what God says?
Do you ever struggle to believe what God says?
Do you ever struggle to do what God says?

I think it’s really important to ask ourselves this question, “Did God say . . . ?” and apply it to our thoughts, emotions, actions, conversations. When we make God’s Word an essential priority, this will help us stay away from the enemy’s deceptions, whispers & questions!

Attention!! Attention!!

Do you ever struggle to focus? I definitely struggle with my focus & I’m learning that it’s easier for me to focus on some things more than others. For example, I’m not very good at listening to stuff, but I’m better at reading. Some people like video content & find it easier to pay attention. So here’s some good news for the video peeps! I started my own YouTube channel & I’m uploading a series once a week. The series I’m working on is about prayer & it’s really excellent!! For the prayer series, each episode is short & very relevant!
Feel free to subscribe & pass on the link to your friends who are interested in prayer!

Help to Grow

One of the things my parents invested in me that I deeply appreciate is the importance of growing. My parents always affirmed my efforts to grow in a plethora of ways – intellectually, athletically, socially, spiritually, etc.

*Resilience by Eric Greitens

*RA Torrey’s book on the Holy Spirit

  • CS Lewis’ Space Trilogy

*Mans Search for Meaning by Viktor Frankl

*Purity of Heart by Kierkegaard

Love to listen to people!!

Listening to people is entirely AWESOME! Their stories, wisdom, insights, experiences can be provide such a great way to connect & learn about life, people & relationships – such very rich!!
In much the same way, when we read about Jesus in the Gospels, we get to see & understand Jesus in extremely insightful & very earthy ways. I love reading how Jesus was born in a stable & His first bed was a feeding trough for animals. I love reading about Jesus giving an earful to the religious leaders of His day. And what I most love about Jesus is the continually extravagant ways that Jesus showed live in creative, redeeming & transformational ways.
Be sure to take some time to read about & listen to Jesus’s stories, heart wide open 🙂
