Discerning Brokenness: The Challenge of Prosperity

“We can stand affliction better than we can prosperity. For in prosperity, we forget God.” Dwight L. Moody

Beware lest you say in your heart, “My power and the might of my hand have gotten me this wealth.” Deut 8:17

“When I fed them, they were satisfied; when they were satisfied, they became proud; then they forgot me.” Hosea 13:6

Imagining Change: The Balm of Thankfulness

“And you shall eat and be full, and you shall bless the Lord your God for the good land he has given you.” Deut 8:10

“Not to us, O Lord, not to us, but to your name give glory, for the sake of your steadfast love and your faithfulness!” Psalm 115

I say grace before sketching, painting, swimming, fencing, boxing, walking, playing, dancing & before I dip the pen in the ink. #Chesterton 

Praying ACTS: A Prayer of Dependence

 Lord, Yours is the greatness, power, glory, victory and majesty. All things come from you and point to you. #adoration

Lord, We confess that we forget your benefits. We become proud in our own efforts and talents. We take credit that is due you. #confession

Lord, Thank you for regularly reminding us that you are the source of all good things, especially our salvation in Jesus. #thanksgiving

Lord, Awaken us to remember that you led us through the wilderness and fed us with manna so that we will obey your voice. #supplication
