The Spotlight: On Guarding Our Heart, Bridling The Tongue and Living By Faith


Hi Dear Readers,

I hope you enjoyed the three posts I shared with you last week!  If you missed them, you can click on the category The Spotlight, to read them all.

This week’s posts deal with things that affect our faith walk with God, and how we can live consciously for Christ.  Roland, whose post I reblogged earlier this week kicks us off with a post about emotional drainers, and the need to guard our hearts.  Lptrey talks about the power of the tongue, while T.Roberts looks at our attitude, whether or not we are exercising faith, or living defeated lives.  There’s so much we can do to allow God’s power work in us, and these posts provide great inspiration for spiritual growth.

Please read and be blessed, and be kind to share and drop a comment for the authours!

1. BEWARE OF EMOTIONAL DRAINERS by Roland Ofori Larbi

Assume you have a fully charged phone in a place where you have no access to electricity. You have an important phone conversation scheduled with the President of the big multinational company where you work at 3pm that day. How will you use the phone?

Are you going to browse on the internet, watch videos and listen to music, something you naturally enjoy, or maybe talk to your best friends all morning?

Also, you must realize that through speech, the evil one was able to deceive Eve allowing sin to enter the world. We share that same power of creating and destroying things with speech. Let’s look at the various reasons why words are so powerful and how to ensure they are used to serve God…

3. IT AIN’T WHAT IT IS! by T.Roberts

Lately I’ve noticed the phrase, “it is what it is” being constantly used among people from all walks of life. Within that toxic phrase lies another statement that says, this situation will not and can not get better; therefore I accept it for what it is.  

I can almost hear Jesus interrupting those conversations with the question “where is YOUR faith?” Jesus actually sacrificed His life on the cross, redeeming us from an “it is what it is lifestyle”…
