Greetings Christian Bloggers, Today, March 02, 2017, ChristianBlog.Com is announcing that we are bring to an end our nearly four year old "Media" feature. It is being replaced with our new "Photos" feature, a multi-month project that has resulted in a completely new design and interaction with the photographs that you upload. Our new 'Photos' allows you to view significantly more information about photographs, provides much easier access to acquiring the photograph links, and includes a powerful new rotation feature to help you correctly rotate any photographs that might have gotten oriented incorrectly - a common problem today with mobile phone cameras. Image Sizes: We have shifted focus away from using tiny images (60 px and 80 px) and now offer a......
Stop apologising for existing

Sorry. Sorry. Pardon. Excuse me. Sorry. With the onset of depression and anxiety, “sorry” became my favorite word. Sorry for bumping into you, even if you hardly noticed. Sorry my hair sticks up on one side and I’m not wearing makeup. Sorry for laughing in really uncomfortable moments. Sorry. Sorry. Sorry. Sorry for not knowing what I want to really do with my life. Sorry that my leg bounces up and down and it distracts you. Sorry for stopping training sessions because my heart is not doing what it used to do. Sorry for taking up space. Sorry for being sad or scared. Sorry for not smiling as brightly as you expect me to, or for not paying you the attention you deserve when you tell me about your day. Sorry for needing a ride instead of growing up and getting a license.......

Written In My Heart: Lay Up For Yourselves Treasures In Heaven (#5) Moving on in chronological order, I am going to share an event that happened within a month of God calling out my name the first time in March of 2001. It was in early April, I decided to check out the back yard of the historic W. W, Mayo House to begin organizing for the opening day of the tourism season. As I walked across the lawn, something caught my eye. I saw what looked like the telephone wires going into the home had been cut. I went over to the corner of the house and sure enough the lines were cut. I then went to the back door and it was not locked. As, I opened the door, I was totally shocked. The little historic home had been broken into and almost all of the smaller artifacts were gone. The burglars had......
Condemnation and the habit to renew our mind
John Knox+
published . 4 min read
The Bible makes it very plain that those who are in Christ are a new creature, a new creation. This new position that we have been born into is expressed in numerous ways. We are told that we are seated in the heavenly places with Christ. We are now no longer slaves of fear and anxiety. We are over comers. We are more than conquerors. We now have peace that the world does not have. All these terms express our new standing before God; once we were at enmity with God but now through the blood of Jesus we have been reconciled with God. We have been blessed with all the blessings in the heavenly places. The faith that Christ manifested while on the earth is now ours. The resurrected power that raised Jesus from the dead is now ours. Because of Christ’s death and resurrection the Holy......

“You still don’t think you deserve therapy.” Barb, my psychologist finished our session with today. I sat in silence, staring deeply into her eyes. It hit me like a tonne of bricks, because she’s right. I instantly felt a nervous childish giggle creep up, which is my coping mechanism when I feel deeply uncomfortable. I’ve faithfully come to every session weekly for the last year and a half. I listen intently, take notes, do my homework, journal and take my medications mostly. In other words, I strive to be a “good patient,” one who she will enjoy working with. Is it because I’m a perfectionist? Partly. Is it because I really want to heal my trauma? Partly. But the truth is, a lot of my “overachieving” in sessions is simply a......
Above all else, guard your heart

The beautiful house was filled with priceless treasures given to the occupant by the Father. These gifts were so valuable that no one except the Father could afford a single one and yet the Father lavishly bestowed all of them on not just one but every single one of his children. This angered the enemy. How he hated to see the children enjoying the gifts the Father had given them. The enemy wanted to rob the children of their gifts and destroy them! Why, they not enjoyed their gifts in the sunshine but they did so in the moonlight as well. In fact, they even had the audacity to dance about with them on the wildest and darkest of nights when they should be huddled up quivering in a corner somewhere! What was wrong with them? The enemy waited quietly in the lengthening shadows. The door of......
A piece of coal

For as long as I could remember, my grandmother favored one of her legs. The limp was very slight but over time, the favored leg became noticeably thinner than the other one and as a result became more and more troublesome. She eventually succumbed to using a cane. That in itself is not unusual for someone in their 70's but the sad thing is, it didn't have to have come to that. My grandmother, like so many of her generation, resisted seeing a doctor. She preferred to simply trust in the Lord. That in itself is not a bad thing. We certainly should trust in God to help and heal us, however, we also need to recognize that God has blessed us with a wealth of knowledge about how to care for the human body when it is sick. When she was in her 80's, my aunt, who was caring for my......

Because of the death and resurrection of Jesus that we remember and recall over this weekend it did not seem proper to not mention this in a blog. Because of this sacrifice that was the reason Jesus was born into this world in a stable in Bethlehem. Jesus came into this world so that we might overcome this world. Jesus came into this world to show us another world. Jesus came into this world so that we may be His ambassadors in this world. Jesus came into this world so that we may overcome the prince of this world. Jesus came into this world to show us His Father. Jesus came into this world to set us free from this world. Jesus came into this world to give us peace in this world. Jesus came into this world to show us the way to another world. Jesus came into this world to reconcile all to......

Written In My Heart: “He Who Has Ears To Hear” (#4) In the writing last week, I shared how God called out my name the first time in March of 2001. This week I will share how He spoke my name a second and third time. Check out the Series Titled Written In My Heart for previous writings. It was the first Sunday after I gave and committed my life to Jesus Christ and became born again that God audibly spoke my name a second time. It was Sunday morning, October 7, 2001. The evening before I had told myself I needed to be sure to wake up by 8:30 a.m. in order to get ready and be on time for church. At exactly 8:30 a.m., an audible male voice woke me by speaking my name, Dorothy, into my right ear. I now rarely miss attending church. I love to go to church to worship and hear truth......

I did not write this. This letter has been circulating for some time around widow/er hangouts. I wrote some blogs with similar sentiments, but this person put most of "our" sentiments together quite well. If you know anyone who has lost their soulmate, The Love of Their Life, consider this a letter from them. If you consider me a friend, consider this a letter from me to you with love. To My Friend I have lost the one I love, the one I cherish. My lover, my best friend, my whole life. Either you have stumbled across this because you want to find out how to help me, or I have given this to you. How I am Feeling I am numb. I am in shock. I am emotionally exhausted. I am in pain. A horrible, gut-wrenching, intense, unimaginable, and indescribable pain. My mind is totally......
A reason for richard

Recently I learned a valuable lesson from my little one. A lesson to slow down, to appreciate the small things, and most importantly a lesson in God's Grace. This weekend we made a big transition, we moved our 2-year-old daughter from a crib to a “big girl bed”. I think the transition was much more emotional for me than for your little peanut. This transition brought to mind a poem I had read a few years back, the author, though unknown, surely pulled some heart strings with this one: The Last Time From the moment you hold your baby in your arms, you will never be the same. You might long for the person you were before, When you have freedom and time, And nothing in particular to worry about. You will know tiredness like you never knew it before, And days will run into......
The rise of satan

A man with an experience is not at the mercy of the man with an argument. Like a cosmic boom the fireworks began! Seemingly, out of nowhere, thoughts pommeled my mind. The rise of Satan. Jesus Christ never walked the earth. You have been mesmerized. It was group hypnosis, a hoax. Test it. Relinquish this supposed prayer language. If this new language is of God, He will give it back to you. Baptized a warrior became my disclaimer. I was a marked woman from the beginning in 1975. I did not choose this disposition; it was chosen for me. My journey’s theme would remain constant, in this regard, through the many years ahead. In the book War on the Saints this is expressed: “The Bible throws much light upon the Satanic powers, which cannot fail to be discerned by all who search......
