2017 was a year full of events in our lives. Some events we loved, some we just liked and some we could have lived without. We lost some people dear to us and we welcomed new people into our lives.
As a result of these events, we are each a different person than who we were on January 1, 2017. How so? Because all the events we experienced changed us into the person who is reading this message.
Hopefully, the events made you stronger, more courageous, wiser than you were before they happened. If they did, you experienced personal growth. If they didn’t, I invite you to revisit event and reassess them and their effect on you. Now that time has passed, I bet you see them in a different light.
We are all busy running here and there doing holiday stuff. Continue reading

For God did not give us a spirit of timidity (of cowardice, of craven and cringing and fawning fear), but [He has given us a spirit] of power and of love and of calm and well-balanced mind and discipline and self-control. 2 Timothy 1:7 (AMP)
The world is not always a good place to be. Wars, racial violence, sex trafficking, child abuse, road rage, rampant profanity, pornography, widespread compromise and deceit, mistrust and pervasive fear surround us. Some of us face these things in our home. How do we not snap back and curse someone who is rude to us? How do we walk away from gossip? How do we not join the “group think” that, depending on the situation, compromise and lies are okay? How do we Christians not get pulled into all this worldly turmoil? We choose not to.
The Word says we are spirit, soul and body (1 Thessalonians 5:23). God has not deposited timidity in our spirit. So when it comes to choosing between things of man and things of God, we can fearlessly chose God (Psalm 118: 6). As Christians, we must not be afraid of dissociating ourselves from the “group think” of the world and display the traits of God (Galatians 5:22-23). God has given us the ability to control ourselves. It’s not always easy or our first inclination. But if we choose to take a moment before reacting…just a moment…we can exercise our God-given self-control.
Today take a moment.
