Today we're sharing a letter from Jamie Harms and a prayer guide for a 24-hour fast in remembrance of Jesus' atoning sacrifice on our behalf.
This week we're in Chapter 8, the final one of Erin Davis' book "7 Feasts." Join us on the blog for the teaching links associated with this chapter and our discussion of the Feast of Booths. Also, don't miss our Easter weekend opportunities for Good Friday and Resurrection Sunday.
Physical Faith, Part 7: How many battles have I fought to overcome my unhealth with just my willpower alone? For so many years, I said to myself, “You got yourself into this, it is your responsibility to get yourself out.” Oh, how I wish I could have seen earlier what a fool I was for not letting God be the source of my strength, for not asking the Creator of my body to give me the help and motivation to take care of it! My stubborn independence just left me more and more discouraged each time I would fail, year after year. But it doesn’t have to be this way!
Physical Faith, Part 6: Most of the time when I pray for healing I am asking for a miraculous healing. I want whatever or whoever it is I am praying about to be magically and suddenly healed. But perhaps the reason God doesn’t answer some of my prayers for healing with a miracle is because He wants to answer my prayer in a different way.
Physical Faith, Part 5: Well, I failed. Here I am writing this series on healthy living and I am thoroughly bruised from my recent fall off the exercise wagon. Man, it sucks to be here — again. It seems like just when I get some good momentum going, life takes a turn and all of my hard work falls by the wayside. I can’t necessarily blame “life” for this either because I am the one making most of these major life decisions that keep rocking my routine, like moving into the house we just bought. However, it doesn’t negate the fact that I fell, hard, out of the habit of exercising. What’s a girl to do about it?
