Truth

What is truth? It to have developed a very fluid meaning… changing as the flavour of the month changes.

“Then you will experience for yourselves the truth, and the truth will free you.” John 8:32 TM

Even though society says truth can change based on circumstances, comparisons, new data and levels of experience, ultimate truth isn’t relative. It can’t be rationalised or customised to fit our moods and preferences but no matter how uncomfortable it is, the truth sets us free.

Ultimate truth is what we need, a truth that does not change with our whims, feelings, desires, whatevers. We need a truth that stands the test of time, and, that truth is only found in Jesus Christ.

Website dramas

This past week I’ve had to move this website plus several others from where they were being hosted on a very out-of-date hosting platform to a new and up-to-date hosting account.
It all kind of went smoothly, except for Hope-Today… typical.
I ended up spending hours and hours troubleshooting before finally finding the errant link(s). Now, hopefully, all is as it should be.
Have a good week!

Take care of your thoughts

Hmmm… this came in my email and as it’s an important thought I just have to share it with you:

“Be careful what you think, because your thoughts run your life.” Proverbs 4:23 NCV

Just as you don’t let everybody who knocks on your door come in and make themselves at home, don’t let every emotion that surfaces dictate the direction of your day or decide your responses.

Something to ponder…

We live in such a world today that it’s hard to know whether today’s truths are true at all because tomorrow it might have become a different truth. So much is relative to what people want to think is truth, and like the weather it changes all the time. This is confusing and confounding, and adds to our frustrations with life (whether we realise it or not).

However, Jesus spoke about truth; a truth that does not change on the whim of man or on how many believe it or on success or failures. The truth Jesus offers us is one that sets us free. It does not depend on what we think or believe but simply on who God is.
Jesus said:
“Then you will know the truth. And the truth will set you free.” John 8:32

Truth is not determined by how many people believe it.

Self-control

“A person without self-control is as defenceless as a city with broken-down walls.” Proverbs 25:28

Lack of self-control makes us vulnerable to attack. We are more vulnerable to temptation, to doing or saying things we will regret, to being swayed by others’ opinions and pressures.

There is a difference between self-control and being in control. Self-control is a healthy discipline that helps us be mindful of what is appropriate behaviour and speech. Being in control is likely the result of a choice (or vow) arising from a wound (or some unpleasant or painful experience) that gives us the idea that we must control the circumstances of our lives where we had been wounded; and it’s likely that other areas of our lives may be totally out of control and undisciplined.

Something to think about…

No matter the mess, God works for good!

“We know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him. He appointed them to be saved in keeping with his purpose.” Romans 8:28 NIV

When it seems like the world’s gone mad, don’t forget “God existed before anything else… and He holds all creation together.” (Colossians 1:17 NLT). When worry whispers, “God doesn’t know what you need!”, remember God promised to “meet all your needs”. (Philippians 4:19 NIV)

What the locusts ate…

A thought from a friend:

“I will repay you for the years the locusts have eaten….” Joel 2:25 NIV

For everything you’ve loved or lost, God has something else. For everything that’s been stolen from you, God has something else. The situation you are in right now is not the end of the story; God wants to write a new chapter. – He’s not through with you!

God’s good in life’s experiences

“And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.” Romans 8:28 NIV

What we consider wasted experiences can become experiences in wisdom – when we decide to learn from them! God in His wisdom knows that we need the challenge of certain situations to mature and stretch us.
