Difference Between Legalism & Godly Living (Condensed)

Arguments and varying opinions about legalism and godliness is not something uncommon on my blog. A huge misunderstanding I think just comes by people's assumptions by what I mean, and that's my fault for not clarifying better. My last post covering this What Is Godly/Holy Living | Am I Living A Defiled Life? taught me that I… Continue reading Difference Between Legalism & Godly Living (Condensed)

Hidden Pride (My Struggle With Validation)

Edited: March 2nd, 2021 Validation. It's a struggle I've had since a preteen. When I had little self-esteem in myself feeling validated felt REALLY good. Praise. Admiration. You name it. Pride & Humility Unfortunately feeling validated doesn't give us self-esteem or confidence. We are always going to want more. As I slowly began to gain… Continue reading Hidden Pride (My Struggle With Validation)

Knowledge Doesn’t Make You A “Mature” Christian (I’m A Hypocrite)

I was looking over a past conflict I had with someone a couple years ago. There were concerning issues I saw with their walk with Jesus, and I tried to encourage them to be wary of becoming stubborn in what they thought was right. Yeah, not something easy to say...let alone hear on the other side.… Continue reading Knowledge Doesn’t Make You A “Mature” Christian (I’m A Hypocrite)

Can People Have Different Convictions? (Updated: 10/10/2021)

Recant Statement & Update: October 10th, 2021 - I apologize for some of the previous wording in this post. I recant from saying you don’t need conviction to know what sin is. For some reason, I had the wacky idea you don’t need conviction to know what sin is. And the reality is conviction is the… Continue reading Can People Have Different Convictions? (Updated: 10/10/2021)

Struggle Of Being A Nitpicker

I wouldn't say I'm nitpicky. Nitpicky- Looking for small, or unimportant faults, especially to criticize someone.  Yeah, that's not me!  Until I read today's devotional which touched on a wise warning from Jesus. (NIV) Matthew 7:03, "Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother's eye and pay no attention to the plank… Continue reading Struggle Of Being A Nitpicker

T. R.'s Note To Reader- Please understand, we really need to look at our OWN lives with this post. Not others. That's kinda the whole point.

I Thought I Blasphemed The Holy Spirit | Obsessive & Intrusive Thoughts

First, and foremost, I'm not against medicine. I think God provides medicine for the mind, in the same way, He provides medicine and help (like physical therapy) for the body. Also, I am not a licensed doctor or therapist.  Our mind is a lot more complex than any other part of our body. It often… Continue reading I Thought I Blasphemed The Holy Spirit | Obsessive & Intrusive Thoughts
