“Change!” by Carol Wagstaff Groen and Phillip Lee

Change! By Carol Wagstaff Groen and Phillip Lee The Oxford American Dictionary defines change as to make or become different; to pass from one form or phase into another. Certainly, for any individual the greatest change is to become a Christian and know that your destination has been changed from hell to heaven; to become born-again.

In the middle of the muddle

Was thinking this morning about the words “muddle / wallow” and their action words “muddling / wallowing”.The dictionary definition is:  mud·dle – verb: muddling  bring into a disordered or confusing state. synonyms: confuse, mix up, jumble (up), disarrange, disorganize, disorder, disturb, mess up”you’ve muddled things up” confuse (a person or their thoughts). synonyms: bewilder, confuse, bemuse, perplex, puzzle, baffle, mystify “she became muddled”  busy oneself in a confused and ineffective way. God reminded me when Paul and Silas were thrown into prison.  (Acts 16:16-40)   Now I’m far from being a “Paul” but I sure know the feeling when it…

“I gave up too soon.”

“I gave up too soon.” A few years ago I was helping out with our church’s ‘feed the homeless’ outreach. When all the meals had been served a lady walked up and asked for a second helping of food. A minute before the chef took that tray away that had some of the food on it. She looked and said, ‘Oh well’, then passed by. A few minutes later the chef returned with a bit more food. I called out…

Ever Accountable is Committed to Helping Women

For a long time now, we’ve noticed a lack of help for women who struggle with porn, which is a problem!

As…

A letter to a friend…

A letter to a friend regarding masturbation Dear friend, You asked me, “What do I think of masturbation”…hum…boy, that’s a hot topic throughout the Christian world in this day and time! Personally, I don’t think it’s God’s plan or best for us…for some it becomes an ‘addictive behaviour’ and for some ‘compulsive’. When that happens, it becomes our ‘control devise’. We LOVE … Continue reading

The Brokenness and Healing Legitimate Needs by W.C.Thompson

One of the important realizations I’ve had in my healing journey is that I have legitimate needs which, for some reason, were not met in my formative years. This coupled with the experiences of abuse and plain-old broken ways of thinking and being has given rise to my neediness, confusion and stinking thinking. I came to the conclusion it’s very important that we learn to distinguish between the legitimate needs related to our sexuality and our emotions and the false…

Stuck in Conflict

Getting to the place where we are sick and tired of being sick and tired…hum, that’s when we are ready to nail our control, desires, stinking thinking to the Cross…and let them die there. The only reason why we become or continue to be conflicted is that we want our cake and eat it too…you know what I mean? We want the truth to be – “we CAN serve two masters”. And after a while of that battle,..however long it…
