In wrapping up our series on attitudes we will also launch into our next series of discussions on being Stuck in the Muck. One thing that keeps us in the wrong attitude is being stuck in the muck!We didn't get stuck on purpose. We didn't begin this race with the intention of landing right in the … Continue reading Daily Devo July 31: Stuck in the Muck
Posted by Kristy "follower of Christ" September 12, 2011POOR IN SPIRIT"It is easy to recite for our creed--"I believe that salvation is through Christ alone and wholly." But how hard is it to see our vileness and guilt--our abominable filthiness, our loathsomeness, and our hopeless condemnation except Christ be applied to our souls in his offices and … Continue reading Throwback to the foster care beginning: Poor in Spirit
As I considered our lives in faith and what we do often in the name of faith I had to call into question our motivation. There is the "prosperity gospel" that floats around which is damaging to any young believer which hears it, but there is another equally as damaging-the "give me faith". I hear … Continue reading Food for Thought Friday:Faith is Action
The word of the week is FAITH. We were saying that faith is not a feeling as some have mistaken it to be, but it's full of action and power! Faith is a way to God, a way to persevere, a way to walk with God, a way to resist satan, a way to live … Continue reading Daily Devo July 26: Wednesday Word Faith
We have been journeying through the wilderness and changing our attitudes along the way. As we've studied, maybe you've realized that there are things you needed to work on.

Doubting, despair, and rebuilding are topics obviously close to my heart. The "road less taken" is personal to my life and is where I am purposed to spend my life serving others. These are not subjects I take lightly. I have not simply studied them in psychology books or sat in a class to listen while … Continue reading Thinking Thursday: What’s Your Purpose
Doubt and despair can leave us living in rubble. When we are exposed to an extremely traumatic event or we grow up in a household that is very dysfunctional and traumatic we learn to protect ourselves emotionally in different ways. As we grow up that same way of protecting ourselves is embedded like a bad … Continue reading Wednesday Word: Rebuild
If you began searching through your doubts yesterday and found that there was some disappointment with God, maybe you were left feeling lost and just disappointed in everything. We're not supposed to feel this way right? Sometimes what we need is a good reset because we've gotten so lost in the wilderness that we no … Continue reading Daily Devo: July 18 Undoing Doubt and Disappointment
We have been looking at changing our attitude together for over a month now. We have combed through Scripture and memorized verses. We have done all the good Sunday school, Bible study things so far. What about the application part? What do you do when that's not enough? What do you do with doubt? What … Continue reading Addressing Doubt in the Brokenness
His first new set of wheels that wasn't meant to restrain him but rather set him free!Throwback! Posted by Kristy "follower of Christ" February 16, 2011TRUSTI used to think I had a deep trust for God. When my parents divorced, it threw my world into disarray. It shattered everything I held onto as "safe". I quite literally felt … Continue reading Bonus: Fostering throwback!
