A 365 project

The Enemy is content with me opposing his work in others, so long as it can distract me from opposing his work in me.

I allow immaturity to triumph in my life when I remain disappointed with someone over a matter I neglect to ever mention out loud to them.

Each one of us is a unique advertisement for insecurity. This is why, every day, we need to behold Jesus in His Word, in His Wholeness.

Pride is the protector of insecurity. It preoccupies my thoughts with the faults of others so that my own weaknesses will be overlooked.

Living out the Gospel is – quite literally – the opportunity of a lifetime.

When we are in Christ, we are inheritors of His wealth: grace. Truly forgiven people are truly forgiving people.

The freedom in forgiving is not by forgetting; quite the opposite, it’s by remembering the magnitude of mercy shown to us.

Gratitude washes off the dirt of entitlement; it allows the wound to heal. The more grateful we are, the healthier we are.

Criticism is the fume of envy and a territorial attitude. It misunderstands that God owns everything and His love is sufficient.

When I forsake the mindset of boundaries – the obsession of “what belongs to me” – I open myself to a satisfaction in God that is boundless.

Jesus has taken the blame for all of the selfish decisions I’ll make today. Everything I do happens amidst a state of perpetual pardon.

Knowing Jesus has not made my life easier. But it has made me supremely fulfilled. For this reason, I cannot stop talking about His love.

Consumerism has fed us the lie that, as customers, others are below us. If someone is serving you, you should look UP to them – not down.

When we are in Christ, we are inheritors of His wealth: grace. Truly forgiven people are truly forgiving people.

Whenever I deem myself deserving of influence, that is when I risk losing it the most.
