It’s a simple question, but it can be tough to answer.
Literally it sounds like, “How has your talking to God been lately?” Emotionally it might feel like, “Sum up your relationship with God at this point in your life.” Bible reading, by comparison, is clearer and more “objective.” How many pages? How far along in your plan? Which books have you been reading? What have you learned? Prayer doesn’t fit into an Excel sheet quite as easily.
Personally 2017 was mostly a challenging year.
During those times which can seem overwhelming, I held on Philippians 4:6-7.
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
In this verse I found tangible, definitive steps to attain comfort and importantly peace that is above all understanding. I acknowledge my challenges, and may even plead in despair, but I know I'm not alone.
Robert Cleaver Chapman tried his best to be forgotten, but God intervened on our behalf.
An unusually humble man, Chapman would have been pleased if you haven’t heard of him — and most Christians haven’t. And he would have likely protested my drawing your attention to him here. But I’m doing it anyway because I know you’ll be the richer for knowing him. And I doubt he minds now, having lived in heaven for nearly 120 years.
2017 was a emotional year for us .. went through lots of hard times ,grief, disappointments, but it was also one of the best years ever.. we experienced a different level of growth, joy ,peace, favour, boldness and breakthrough! Going into 2018 with more battle scars, more humility , but greater gratitude, hope and love. We serve a great God
TESTIMONIALS ARE GREAT - READ WHAT REAL PEOPLE HAVE TO SAY ABOUT GOD!
