The Non-Coffee-Date and Trusting God, Not Man.—Lore Ferguson Wilbert
I appreciate Lore’s thoughts here. Helpful reflection on the infamous coffee non-date.
Single girls, don’t manipulate and scheme the single guys in your lives. Trust God that when a man sees and knows and trusts God with you, he will do the right thing. It might mean a non-coffee-date or two (if he makes it seven or ten, it’s not bad to ask for clarification, just don’t demand he call it something it’s not—that’s bad for you and bad for him.), but trust God with the outcome. Be faithful, obedient, gospel yourself, and then trust God.
Married girls, trusting your husband isn’t the goal. It’s a means for some things, but not the goal. The goal is to trust God and the overflow of trusting God is trusting your husband. If you feel he has broken your trust, look to God. If you feel he has never given you reason to trust him, look to God. If you just want him to do something, trust God.
Reignite Your Prayer Life—Don Whitney
Love Don Whitney’s thoughts on prayer here.
How’s your prayer life?
Hardly any question — unless perhaps if someone asks about your evangelistic efforts — can cause more chin-dropping, foot-shuffling embarrassment for Christians than asking about their prayer life.
Why is that? Why do so many followers of Jesus suffer with such unsatisfying prayer lives and consider themselves hopelessly second-rate Christians because of it?
20 Ways Being a Mom Makes You a Better Leader—Selma Wilson
Great blog post from Selma! Subscribe to her blog. Read her often.
Being a Mother has been the most rewarding, challenging, adventurous, and fulfilling role in my life. Being a Mom has stretched me, grown me, and taught me so much about life and leadership. I wouldn’t be the leader I am today, had I not gone through the boot camp of motherhood.
I have two adult daughters now and two amazing sons (in-laws) and three of the most adorable grandchildren on the planet (I will be glad to share pictures and stories!).
I played the Star Wars Battlefront beta this weekend and really loved it. Excited for it to release next month. This scene from someone else’s game was hilarious.
