You Are Exceptional!

You are exceptional. Think about it! Christ lives in you. That should–and does!–make a huge difference in your life. That sets you light years above this world! You are markedly unique! When you came to Christ–became a believer in Him–you were transformed and changed on the inside which others see as it shows on the outside.

Now consider this: “Why would any person with a pure, holy God living inside their heart and soul want to fashion or mold themselves after the ‘world’?” This makes me think about bread dough. I’m sure you know the process for bread making. First you mix up a batch of dough. Then you mold it into any shape you desire. You get to decide! You can shape your dough into little clover-leaf dinner rolls or breadsticks or a loaf.

When it comes to people, to you and me, we’re not to let the world knead and form us like bread dough, pressing and working us into its mold. Amazingly, you and I have everything we need to be remarkable. With God’s help, you can avoid conforming to this world and follow your Lord with all your heart. To do this you need to remember that God, in His divine power, has already given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness (2 Peter 1:3). Rejoice! You already possess all the makings for exceptional living!

Keeping a Prayer Journal by Elizabeth and Jim George
Keeping a Prayer Journal

by Elizabeth George January 31, 2023

I know from personal experience that living a life of prayer is not easy. Our lives are filled with a multitude of activities that tend to crowd out time for prayer. How many times have you been guilty of telling someone that you would pray for them? Your heart genuinely yearned to be a part of bringing their need before the throne of God. And then what happened? I’m sure that, if you’re like me, more times than you would like to admit, you forgot about the promise to pray before you rounded the corner of the church building! Why? Because you didn’t write the request down.

The Lord's Prayer by Elizabeth and Jim George
The Lord’s Prayer

by Elizabeth George January 17, 2023

Just like you and me, Jesus’ disciples seemed to need help with praying. Wisely, they asked Jesus, “Lord, teach us to pray” (Luke 11:1). Jesus then gave them—and us—a model or sample prayer to pray. This prayer is usually referred to as the Lord’s Prayer.
