so easy&tempting 2feast on the abundance of religious&political commentaries that FLOOD “airwaves” ~ far better 2immerse self in God’s WORD.

even tho we might all be “Christians” together, we hv WILDLY varied convictions; still on this we agree ~ we know God primarily by his WORD.

If we really see the ugliness of the sin nature from which Jesus rescues US, we cannot help but long 4his mercy towards others!

a recovering Everything-is-black-or-white thinker, I’v bn humbled in recent yrs 2see complexity, &spectrum of color, &whole persons.

God teaches us not only 2″love what he loves & hate what he hates” ~ but 2have mercy where he has mercy, 2be patient where he is patient…

4those of us who consider ourselves recovering pharisees ~ how has Christ revealed 2u the truth: “Mercy triumphs over justice”? (James 2:13)

controversies will 4ever be part of our religious &political dialogues..what is more important: the Truth? our Convictions? or our “Rights”?

is our Faith predicated on the zealously affirmed theologies of our favorite famous preachers? or are we hungering 4 & hearing from Christ?

Don’t look to the left or to the right ~ Just WORK THE PLAN, and the results will follow naturally.

The truth? I was willingly trapd by notion I had 2believ rightly about EVERYTHNG &get u 2b same as me. Then GRACE broke thru; CHRIST is all.

The truth? It really doesn’t matter what “they” think. It’s not just ok 2say no, it’s often necessary. (be LED, Prov. 3:4-5)

The truth? Expending ur best effort 2 obtain the “good opinion” of others does NOT make u Adaptable or Flexible…It makes u a Slave.

New mantra, “Sweat is sexy!”

About Grace2Grow

Leah holds a Bachelor's degree in Philosophy, and considers herself a forever-student at heart, especially of the Word of God. The last few years have included a 160+ lbs weightloss, and a complete re-working of her "inner man" as she has had to journey from merely what she "knew" to putting that into "ACTION" .. a transformation that so rocked her core, she believes God's calling in her life includes a sense of "urgency," as the body of Christ is fully - knowingly or unknowingly - entrenched in These Last Days, just as Jesus prophesied. She has worked in various forms of professional Customer Service for nearly 20 years, from Mortgages and Banking to Automotive Plastics, and values most the opportunity to mediate and problem-solve. Leah has served over the years in varying roles, from Women's Bible Study Leader to Choir Director to Worship Leading to teaching Sunday School to working faithfully in the Nursery. She loves being a Wife and Aunt and Sister and Daughter and Friend, and loves to read just about anything she can put her hands on. She is always re-learning putting feet and muscle to these things, but she has learned there is incalculable value in "working the plan," and "being faithful with LITTLE so as to be entrusted with MUCH." And she is trusting her beloved God and Savior for the "much" yet to come. You can find more of her musings on her blogs at http://grace2grow.com and http://grace2grow.blogspot.com/, or follow her on Twitter at https://twitter.com/grace2grow
