Enduring Temptation

 

 

"When the devil had finished all this tempting, he left him until an opportune time." - Luke 4:13,

The wording of this verse implies that Satan completely emptied his gun and had no more ammo for Jesus, and he had to leave. However, we know from 1 Cor. 10:13 that God will not allow us to be tempted beyond  what we can withstand. We also know that when we are tempted, God will provide a way out so that you can endure it. 

Satan can only go around as a roaring lion seeking to devour someone who is uninformed, or who dosn't know who they are in Christ. (1 Pet. 5:8)

So, here is the good news. Whatever Satan is fighting you with is only temporary. Don't quit.  

 

"Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up."  Gal. 6:9

3 Statements to Change Your Kids' Lives

At the doctor's office the other day, I came across an interesting article. 

A counselor claims that there are 3 statements you can say to your children that will significantly improve your parenting and the way your children behave. 

 - "Do you need a hug?" Instead of lecturing a child on their actions and attitude.

 - "Do you want to talk about it?" When kids are upset, regardless of why. 

 - "I am SO happy to see you!" The way you react when your kid enters the room is so important for their well-being and sense of self.

Guest Blog From Matt Hammitt of Sanctus Real

What an awesome day! Our new album — RUN — is out, and I got to hang with the whole K-LOVE Morning Show crew. It doesn’t get much better than that!
 
 
 
We’re so excited about today’s release. Every song on this album tells a story, and we’re praying that God will use those stories to encourage and inspire people in every situation. 

 

All the songs have a special meaning, but I really love the lyrics of RUN because sometimes we all need a reminder that we're not alone. 

 

We need a reminder that Jesus knows each one of us, welcomes each one of us and loves each one of us more than we could ever imagine.

 

Whatever we're going through, all we need to do is run into the arms of love.
 
Big thanks to our friends at the K-LOVE Morning Show and to everyone who supported us along the way. We're humbled and blessed.
