Do You Want a God You Can Understand?

Why You Don’t Want a God You Can Completely Understand

Perhaps a better question would be why would you want a God you could completely understand?  It is so you can feel equal to God? So that His decisions would be more palatable to you? So that you could relate better, or perhaps so you do not need to trust Him.

How Do I Get People to Listen and Talk to Me?

What is Truly Meant by Controlling Your Anger?

The key to controlling your anger is not taking charge of it like you would a child, or an employee, or a car. Once you lose your temper, you are no longer in control. Controlling your anger means you find a way to control when and why you get angry. Anger is not necessarily wrong, so being in control isn't the ability to suppress your anger, but deciding what you should get angry about.

How Do I Know If I Have Enough Faith?

How Do I Know If I Have Faith?

Since faith is essential to the Christian life, many Christians wonder if their faith is strong enough or is quantifiable enough to impress God into answering their prayers and seeing God work wonders in their life. Even asking the question, "How do I know if I have faith?", shows the lack of faith and expresses the doubt in your heart. But your faith isn't based on your present doubt, but on what you do to overcome your doubt.

How to Help Someone With a Broken Heart

It can be agonizing to watch a friend or loved one suffer through a broken heart. However, there are things that we can do to help them through it. Now if you did the heartbreaking, that would be an altogether different situation. If you broke someone's heart accidentally, you can probably help the healing process with a heartfelt apology and doing everything in your power to make up for the wrong. If you did it intentionally, for whatever reason, the odds are unless you think you made a mistake and try to fix it, everything you do will only add to the other person's pain.

Why Children Abandon Their Parent's Values

Why Children Grow Up and Abandon Their Parent’s Values

It is amazing how many stories I hear of children -- even in good Christian homes -- that grow up to abandon everything they were taught, abandon church, abandon the values, morals and standards their parents hold to and jump pell-mell into a life that ends up consuming them -- much like the story of the Prodigal Son. I'm glad the Prodigal Son came back; I just wish he would've never left to begin with.

Can You Forgive and Forget?

Is It Possible to Forgive and Forget?

We've heard it said often that we need to forgive and forget. What a wonderful thing it would be if we could actually forget the wrongs done to us! Wouldn't it be great if by forgetting, we could erase all the pain, all the worry, all the stress, and all the negative emotions from the wrong? I know I'd love that. And if there is a magical formula somewhere on how to do it, I certainly would want to know about it. Life would be easier if we could forgive and then forget.
