Living as if I’m Waiting

88625489_98647a19ed_z

By Amber Van Schooneveld 

I wonder how much of my life has been wasted living as if I’m waiting. There’s always something that’s not quite right or not quite complete in life. There’s the major milestones: a spouse, a job, a child. And then there are the little things that we tuck in our minds: “If I could just get this; complete that; change this, then I’ll be happy. Then I’ll be on track.”

But completion, perfection and material attainment are illusive and in a never-ending game of one-upsmanship.

  How Good Do You Look?

mirror

By Michael L. Upshur Jr.

As we examine ourselves daily, we have to look at who we are and how we appear to GOD. Are we spiritually and physically attractive to HIM?  Do we please HIM?

Often times the world places MUCH emphasis on physical attraction and we cater to this specific mindset.

The first thing we see in the opposite gender is the attractiveness if we are in pursuit of that, but someone’s face is not an accurate representation of their heart.

  Sin Provoking Joy Robbers and What To Do With Them

BusySuperMom

By Kimm Crandall

*A recycled post from sometime last year.*

It was one of those mornings… Justin was gone, my six year old and nine year old woke up sick, my two year old woke up cranky from a late night and my four year old just wanted to sit on me. I stuck my older two in my bed and turned on Fraggle Rock but they didn’t want me to leave.

  Equipped

Whatever-your-need-you-are-equipped-through-Jesus

By  Lisa Buffaloe

Do you ever feel ill-equipped to handle the circumstances or people in your life? Do you wonder if you’ll make it through the next trial or difficulty?

I have good news, very good news! If you are a Jesus follower, whatever has happened in your life, whatever you face, God has equipped you. You are never without what you need to recover or to move forward. Since God is here now and will be with you on every step of the journey, His provision is already there to equip you for each and every need and challenge.

 Light Overcomes Darkness

Colossians 3:14-16 (TNIV)

And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.

Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts.

 “Living by Faith?”

7711866066_9ffdaf3078_z

By Erik Retallick

There are many references in the Bible to faith. Did you know that we exercise faith every day, even if we are are not Christian believers? We expect the sun to rise in the East and set in the west, we have faith when sitting down, that the chair will hold our weight and we have faith that when we go to the mall, there will be items for sale. Whether or not we can afford what we want is a separate issue.

World Prayr has chosen to be different, starting with teaching others that the pilgrimage all those who have been brought near to God are on is not one about our focusing on what we are doing, or focusing on our sin or anything we are not doing, but focusing on what Christ did in order for us to know transforming grace. We refer to this message as the gospel of grace. We then live this out as a ministry by serving others through counseling, prayer, and sound biblical teachings.

We also differ from most ministries in another key area, working to live out the message of Philippians 2:4 by aggressively promoting other ministries and churches. As a mission team, World Prayr is working to serve those who are disconnected to reconnect them, one soul at a time, to local bodies of believers.

We refer to our team as an “Ohana” made up of many nationalities spread across the globe and within the Protestant faith.
