When the glamour fades, only the faithful remain. If we keep our eyes on an eternal goal, the routine takes on new meaning. We'll see our place in God's bigger plan.

(See also Lest You Fall[10].)

Fear Not!

Our fear of doing the wrong thing may strangle the voice of God's Spirit, and make us useless to God. Trying too hard to stay "on the rails" may be what bumps so many of us off. We may need to drop our rules and start all over... like little children.
(See also know-it-alls[10], Lest You Fall[10], Fear of the Devil[10], and Honest Doubts[10].)

Pride Smashing

Deliverance from pride is not evolutionary. It is revolutionary... and spiritually "violent", or it is a farce. If we are not consciously dealing with our pride (i.e. smashing it), we are defending it.
(See also pride[10], self-righteousness[10], and Advice for Counsellors[10].)

The Great Escape

(See also Walk Of Faith, and Eight Ways to Know God's Will.)

Conviction vs Condemnation

Conviction includes a constructive plan for change; and condemnation does not. We are neither as bad nor as good as the devil tries to tell us we are. And almost no one ever tries to be bad; it just happens. These are a few of the words of wisdom in this little article.
(See also resolutions[10], and change.)

This article by Cherry explains how it is in our own best interests to forgive others and even to forgive circumstances.
(See also bitterness, and From Bitter to Better[10].)

(See also time, Measure it, and Lombardi Finds a Job.)
