Square Peg in a Round Hole

Is There A Place For Me? If you're new to the body of Christ, or even if you're not, you may find yourself in the position of asking the question where you fit in within the confines of your current congregation. This question is more common than you might think. You are not alone! More than one person has shared with me in the past that they struggle to find their place within the body of Christ and where they can best serve. This dilemma can be caused by a number of reasons. However, even in the midst of the uncertainty about where you "fit" --rest assured there is a place for you and if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead (Rom. 10:9-10) then God is at work in you for His good pleasure! (Phil. 2:12-13)

Where Do I Fit In? Discovering Your Spiritual Gifts

Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit. And there are varieties of ministries, and the same Lord. There are varieties of effects but the same God who works all things in all persons.
I Corinthians 12:4-6


Discover Your Spiritual Gifts! If you are a believer, you have a spiritual gift(s). You are more valuable than the sparrows and God works through His children and uses the gifts that He gives them. One of the steps in the process of knowing where you "fit in" is understanding how you have been gifted. However, your gifts should not be the only factor that determine where, when, and how you serve; remember Moses! Interested in the areas where you might be gifted? Take this spiritual gifts survey.

Did You Discover Something New? If you decided to take the survey -- did it make a difference for you? Do you have a better idea of where you can be used within the body of Christ? Feel free to share if you found this survey to be helpful. And, I will be praying for those that might read this post, that the Lord would use you mightily this year!

Backed Into A Corner -- Thank God

The capacity to respond to adversity with faith and gratitude is not limited to spiritual "superheroes." Choosing Gratitude - Nancy Leigh DeMoss Precarious Position. Many times we find ourselves in a place where we would rather not be and our desire may be to run and hide. However, running and hiding may not be viable options and are probably not what God is asking of us in the current situation. The problems and issues we will face in life vary greatly from health, to relationship/marriage, finances, to the stress of looking for a job, or maybe like Job, we might have lost everything -- family and possessions. Often, it is when we have done everything in our human power to ameliorate our situation and fail miserably that we remember God. photo credit:  cindy47452  via  photopin   cc Powerful Response. When we find ourselves in situations and recognize our only choice is to look up to God we can have victory and relief. When we take the time to thank the Fathe

Common Ground: The Road Less Traveled

The Presence of God.  Ruth and Naomi found themselves in very trying circumstances after each suffered the loss of a husband and the inescapable grief that accompanies death. Scripture gives us a snapshot into their lives and we get a glimpse of the strong bond of friendship that took place between Ruth and Naomi. Was it the deep sense of   grief that brought these two women together in a way they had never experienced before? Perhaps these women were drawn to each other because they knew they were “alone” in the world.  More importantly, the presence of God is evident by Ruth's response to her mother-in-law.  Ruth reminds us and reminded Naomi of God's presence. The presence of God is the bond that unites our hearts as brothers and sisters in Christ. The Road Less Traveled photo credit:  B Gilmour.  via  photopin   cc Mutual Commitment. Naomi urged Ruth to go home to her mother in Moab hoping that Ruth would find another husband. Ruth refused to leave Naom

The Hope of Christmas ~ The Heart of God

Behold, The virgin shall be with child and shall bear a Son, and they shall call His name "Immanuel," which translated means,  "God With Us."  Matthew 1:23 God With Us. God is not far away from us but with us, desiring to be close, so close that He sent His Son in the form of a man to be " with us ."  An act of humility and an act of love directly from the God of the universe. We did not beg for His attention nor did we attempt to ingratiate ourselves into His good graces. God initiated contact with us, with all of the human race. ( Philippians 2:8 ) He entered the sinful world we chose to be part of without reservation, knowing His entrance into this world, would inevitably mean suffering. The God of the universe, perfect in every way, entered this world willingly, knowing He would suffer greatly for me and for you. photo credit: Curtis McCormick via photopin cc The Word Became Flesh God Desires That We Seek Him.
