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!

What Does Your "Busyometer" Read?

"And they continued steadfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.Acts 2:42 (KJV)Life can get very busy and the speed at which we function can quickly accelerate to one where we feel we have completely lost control.  We need to slam on the brakes!  How do we stop the proverbial hamster wheel and come up for air?

Recognize the Posted Speed Limit. We must recognize the speed to which we have been called.  And yes, there are times in our lives when the speed seems incredibly fast and we cannot slow down; the truth is, some seasons in life are like that.  However, there are other times in our lives when we must eliminate those activities that were not put upon us by God, but rather our own doing for myriad reasons.



Adjust Your Speed. Once we realize who we are and what God is calling us to do, we are then required to adjust our speed.  Look at what the multitudes did upon hearing Peter speak: 1) they gave their lives to Christ…

Tired of the TO DO Lists?

The Great Grind: If you're anything like me, your life is filled to overflowing with the necessities and then some!  I'm sure you have a life filled with the daily grind of shopping, cooking, cleaning, working, going to the Doctor, going to the bank, running to the pharmacy, taking care of the sick pet, thinking of meals for the upcoming week, taking care of the children, and if you home school your children - lesson planning, grading, teaching, gathering material and then there's paying the bills, cutting coupons to save money, and oh yes, the beloved laundry!  And the defining moment when you realize you do not have any clean underwear for the next morning...ugh.

Part 2 ~ Miracles: Impossible?

And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall name Him Jesus.  Luke 1:31 Miracles: Impossible? Remembering David Hume's definition of a miracle from the last post: "[a] violation of the laws of nature; and because firm and unalterable experience has established these laws, the case against a miracle is--just because it is a miracle--as complete as any argument from experience can possibly be imagined to be." 1 If we take a look at Hume's definition of miracle, at first glance, it would seem as if he is declaring miracles to be an impossibility because they cannot violate the laws of nature. Is this really what Hume is attempting to argue? Hume taught "that what we call the laws of nature are simply an account of what has happened up to the present plus a belief that the future will continue to be like the past."2 According to Hume, we observe what has happened and we believe, or shall we say, take a step of faith to believe that wha…
