Getting into a relationship will not fix your loneliness. I know that idea rests somewhere in the hearts of most single people. I find myself thinking it all the time. Fortunately, we’re all wrong. I say fortunately because it’s not a good idea to use a romantic relationship to try and fix our loneliness problem. A romantic relationship will not solve your longing for relationship. Our loneliness problem is way too big for one person or even a group of…

One of the hardest parts of my porn addiction came from my denial. I knew that I had a problem with porn and that I ‘struggled’ with it, but I NEVER wanted to admit that I was addicted to it. Admitting that I was an addict seemed like the end of the world. I rationalized and used a thousand comparisons to make sure I never thought of myself that way.

We need to approach getting to know God in a similar way to how…

It’s also one of the most difficult commands in Scripture. So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of it’s own. – Matthew 6:34 It’s really hard to follow this command because of the difficulty and incredible number of…

How we thank God is just as important as how often we thank Him. Sometimes, we get too caught up in how often we are thankful. We shouldn’t thank God because we feel obligated to be thankful. That’s not real gratitude. We should be thankful out of appreciation. If I walked up to Mother Theresa, while she still walked this earth, and thanked her for her years of inspiring ministry, this would be an act of obligation. I never learned…
