Do I feel I deserve a continuation of my rights and privilege I have experienced always experienced as an American?
Perfectionism is merely a man-made construct to experience the perfect outside of God. It is destructive and debilitating to have these expectations.
God’s sovereignty swallows up all sorrow, suffering, and evil. In God’s sovereignty there is no evil because His Light has dispelled all darkness.
We’re never going to embrace the sovereignty of God on our own. Those things that caused me pain, wounded me, and bought a life of shame.
The Lord with His sovereign touch has been more entreating than dismissive. His sovereign touch is drenched in His loving care and perfect knowledge.
There's a difference between pain and suffering for someone who’s born again. Suffering is usually the result of my resistance, while pain is a mark of change.
Our inalienable rights–life, liberty, and our pursuit of happiness–don't necessarily coincide with the declaration of dependence found in the beatitudes.
I don’t want to live my life resisting what offends me or the things I don’t like. Rather I want to live receiving all of life as from God.
I am seeing life like I rest in the palm of God’s hand and that because I am His, all things in my life are Jesus touching, guiding, and leading me.
If I am eating the fruits of knowledge then I am involved in fixing what God screwed up and manhandling Him to give me what is good.
When I choose to live my life with thanks to God, I make a choice for Life, which liberates me from the Tree of Knowledge.
Despots may scheme and finagle but it's God Himself who places them in leadership. No man can steal what only God Himself endows.
