“Above all else, guard your heart, for everything that you do flows from it.” (Proverbs 4:23)

As humans, we like to compartmentalize. We like to be productive, and in turn, don’t appreciate the things that hold us back or that stand in our way, even if the very things that interrupt our schedules, lives or personal relationships are us.

“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith – and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God – not by works, so that no one can boast.” (Ephesians 2:8-9)

When life gets chaotic or hard or just messy, I wish God would break through the clouds and tell me what to do. I don’t even care what it is that He tells me to do or where to go, I just want confirmation that I am doing what’s right and what God wants.

“For our boast is this, the testimony of our conscience, that we behaved in the world with simplicity and godly sincerity, not by earthly wisdom but by the grace of God, and supremely so toward you.” (2 Corinthians 1:12)

We are all called to a simple, even child-like, faith. But how is that attainable when our lives feel anything but simple and when we are faced with so many un-child-like things, such as careers, debt, relationships, etc.? A simple faith feels impossible, frustrating and even insulting to all of the responsibilities we have.

“How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity!” (Psalm 133:1)

Conflict never feels good. No matter how calm, cool and collected we like to play it, conflict makes us feel unsettled and misunderstood. And what’s usually worse than the conflict itself, is our response to it. There are typically two end-of-the-pendulum responses when it comes to conflict. We either isolate ourselves and hide from it, feeling ashamed and confused, or we charge toward the issue with anger and pride, believing that if we shout loud enough, people may listen to our complaints and injustices.

“Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there. If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast.” (Psalm 139: 7-10)

We have many decisions to make in life. These decisions range from day to day things, like the foods we eat, clothes we wear or the people we spend time with, to bigger decisions, such as the career path we pursue, whom to marry, where to live, etc.

“You become like what you worship. When you gaze in awe, admiration, and wonder at something or someone, you begin to take on something of the character of the object of your worship.” – N.T. Wright, Simply Christian: Why Christianity Makes Sense

Can you remember the last person you truly admired? Whether it was because of their effortless kindness or a moment of bravery, did you feel an overwhelming sense of respect and love for that individual and a desire to be more like them?

“As the fear of God is the beginning of wisdom, so the denial of God is the height of foolishness” –R. C. Sproul

Everyone has fears. Maybe you fear things like heights, spiders or the dark. Maybe you fear deeper things, such as abandonment or lack of love. A form of fear that is often misunderstood by Christians is the fear of God.

“He died not for men, but for each man. If each man had been the only man made, He would have done no less.” –C. S. Lewis

C. S. Lewis was both an amazing theologian and an incredible author. He is best known for his series The Chronicles of Narnia. Today, we often quote him, as he was very well-spoken and wise. One of his most interesting theological quotes states that Jesus “died not for men, but for each man. If each man had been the only man made, He would have done no less.”
