In your time diving into the word how do you analyze the word? In my discipleship classes I have learned to use the SOAP method and for me this has really helped me to do more than just simply read the Bible. I decided to share some from a SOAP of my own from last month. So here it is.
I know we have all faced some type of hardship, difficulty, or obstacle at one point or another. I personally know that it can be difficult to think of what to pray in a time as such. Sometimes you are at a point where you are just lost for words. So what are some of the things I have prayed while I am going through a tough time?
2017 is over and here we are days into 2018. The majority of you have probably already set out goals/new year resolutions for the year. And me well I’ve been sick. But as I was lying in bed I had been wondering what it is I want out of the year. Sure I want the health, happiness, etc as everyone else but what do I want from the year to look back and see growth in myself?
Have you been going through a tough time and don’t really know what to do? Well I have been in the same place before and in this blog I share what I have realized is the best thing to do when you are allowing your situation to distract and or blind you from God’s will over your life.
So Thanksgiving is a day away and although I am thankful for many things on a daily basis the holiday season tends to be a time where I sit and think of what the year has brought. Do you do the same?
When I first accepted Christ in my life I was often worried if I was praying “wrong”. I was told there is no wrong way to pray but I still doubted myself. I doubted that I could pray as “good” as others that grew up in church. I now understand what it means in there is no wrong way to pray. You see as you develop your relationship with Christ you might be at work and find yourself praying as you are working. It becomes like talking to a friend. There is no wrong way to speak to God.
To me the simplest way to explain love is it is God. Through His love He sent His Son Jesus Christ to die on the cross for mine and your sins. 1 John 4:10 “In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins.” You may be wondering how do I know what God’s love is? How do I understand His love? Because at one point I too had these questions. I think these are questions everyone has at some point.
