Forgiveness Requires That We Face The Truth


THE COUNSELING MOMENT

SOURCE:  Stepping Stones/ Lighthouse Network

Facing the Truth

Forgiveness requires that we face the truth:  the truth that it was necessary for Christ to die to pay the price tag for our sins; the truth of our own sinful behavior and desperate need; the truth that if we are ever to be free, we must receive Christ’s forgiveness; the truth that we need to extend the powerful gift of grace to others and forgive those who have hurt us.

All of us have sinned and fallen short of God’s glory. But when we confess our sin to Him, God treats us much better than we deserve. And because of Christ Jesus, He freely accepts us back and sets us free from the…

Day 29 of 30 day blogging challenge ~ Self-Confidence

Self Confidence

“When you are content to be simply yourself and don’t compare or compete, everybody will respect you.” Lao-Tzu

Previously a while back I did a poll on “What does having CONFIDENCE mean to YOU?”   The results displayed that “All the above” had the most votes and next was being “Comfortable”.  Why do you think being comfortable increases confidence?  Do you think when you are comfortable with yourself or a subject matter this improves feeling more competent and promotes self-confidence?   By having self-confidence are people more apt to take risks, which may open up more doors of opportunities?  What do you think these results tell us? ~ Patti
