What God Said To Jonah

There is someone that God has been speaking to. He has been telling you to do something that you don’t want to do. You KNOW what He is saying but you are scared to do whatever it is. You don’t think anyone will listen to you. You are afraid people will think you are crazy or get mad at you. If this is YOU, then you know it, so please read on. I want to give you some encouragement. (If it isn’t you, please say a quick prayer for whoever it is, thank you!)

Choice

Did Jesus have to die or not? Did He really rise from the dead? Or is there wiggle room here? A lot of us want to plant our feet in both camps to make everybody happy, to be nice, to be comfortable.

I believe it is important that we examine our own hearts and figure out where we stand.

#BeStill Meditative Prayer Challenge

My challenge to anyone reading this is to just try fifteen minutes of meditative prayer every day this year. If fifteen is too hard, try ten. Five is better than none. Meditative prayer has made all the difference in my own life. Connecting with God this way has healed me emotionally and spiritually. It has tapped me into a joy that I didn’t even know was possible. I have watched close friends heal from trauma and abuse after they began practicing meditative prayer. In my case, I have been completely healed from depression for over 23 years now. It works.
