It’s easier said than done, but loving ourselves includes setting boundaries. It requires that we find the courage to say "no" to requests that we were never called to bear – and only "yes" to God’s agenda for our lives.

Protect It

Protecting your purpose is a lot like having a baby. Similar to a pregnant woman waiting to deliver, you’ll have to shield whatever God has placed within you. Your vision could be anything – such as launching a new business, trusting God for a miracle, strengthening a relationship, or spearheading a ministry.

There is a common misconception that contentment and complacency are the same. Well, they’re not! Complacency can make us resistant to change, and satisfied with the status quo. Contentment leaves us open to growth, and grateful for what God has already given us.

The Perfect Time

Most of us procrastinate. If something is uninteresting or overwhelming, we put it off. But there will never be a "perfect" time to get things done.

Why Are they So Successful?

Have you ever wondered, Why do some non-believers accomplish great things on earth, while many faithful Christians barely survive? The answer to this interesting question is complex, but strongly rooted in how hard (and smart) people work.

Hand Them Over

Did you know that, according to a national study, 40 percent of the things people worry about never actually happen? Although hard to admit, we worry because we don't completely trust God. If we did, why would we fret over things that might happen?

Finding the courage to speak up when our message is unpopular can be frightening. People might reject us, enemies will attack us — and at times, we'll have to stand alone. But, we must not be afraid to speak up when it's the right thing to do.

What is Your Decision?

At one point or another, life has pinned many of us between "a rock and a hard place." Yet, very few of us would be willing to (literally) amputate our arm in order to be set free. But, as depicted in the award-winning film 127 Hours, that’s exactly what Aron Ralston did.

An idol is not, merely, a graven image that people physically bow down to. It is anything that occupies a place in our heart that belongs to God.
