Conquering Condemnation-Spirit of Pride

Conquering Condemnation-Spirit of Pride

We are continuing our Faithful Friday blog post series on the subject of condemnation.  This week we will talk about a subject that everyone can relate to and that is pride. I have struggled with perfectionism on many different levels every since I can remember.  From second grade spelling bees to something as simple as packing my kids lunch— I have always had an expectation of myself and always just wanted to get things right (imagine that standard in this Pinterest generation)!  I’m not even sure where I got the standard of right from, considering that I came from a …

Conquering Condemnation

Conquering Condemnation

Hey there!! I hope everyone has has a fabulous week so far! I know I have! We are continuing our faith-filled Friday’s on the subject of condemnation. We know that Christ defeated our sin and shame once and for all, but what we forget is that there is a part that we must play in that process of restoration.  When we are feeling the weight of that sin, we just need to stop and admit our faults, ask for forgiveness, and change our ways.  Condemnation is rendered powerless in our lives through an act of confession.  When we miss the …

Conquering Condemnation

  I am so glad to be with you all for the month of November to share on these Faith-filled Fridays! I want to talk to you this month about a subject that has challenged me and that is condemnation.  Condemnation is a word that just sounds dirty..  And it even feels heavy and like a cloud of darkness swarming over you. It carries with it serious implications, one of which is bondage. I know because I lived in this place for way too long.  That is, until recently when I learned my new identity in Christ.  I allowed condemnation …

Hidden Grief

Hidden Grief

Hey friends! I’m back for my last blog post on Invisibility. So far I’ve covered Motherhood, Social Media and Unanswered Prayer. Whew! Who knew there were so many ways we can feel unseen? These have been heavy topics so I really wanted to write something light hearted today. But after praying and giving it a lot of thought, I felt strongly that God wanted me to share with you about grief, particularly “hidden” grief. Hidden grief is a deep sadness we carry with us daily. It’s buried underneath smiles, productivity, serving and even laughter, but it’s always there under the …

Unanswered Prayer: Feeling Invisible to God

Unanswered Prayer: Feeling Invisible to God

    Unanswered Prayer: Feeling Invisible to God     For this Faith Post Friday, I want to focus on something that truly stirs my heart – unanswered prayer.  I know each of our stories is different, but I’m going to bet you have experienced a time when you felt invisible to God.  When we are desperate for Him and we cry out for help and He doesn’t rescue us, how do we move on from that? How is a Believer in Christ supposed to process that?  How do we trust that God loves us and sees us when we …

The Invisibility of Social Media

The Invisibility of Social Media

Hey guys! I’m back with my second Faith Post Friday! As many of you know, my topic for the month of September is Invisibility. Last week I wrote about the Invisibility of Motherhood. Today is all about the Invisibility of Social Media. Before I go any further, I want to be clear that there’s a lot of good that has come from social media. But, like with most things, us humans can misuse it. My words today are meant to encourage you that you are not alone in the struggle to keep a social media balance. Love / Hate I …

Hey friend! Welcome to our very first “Faith Post Friday”! I am so glad you’re here!! My name is Jennifer and I have been with My Journey of Faith since 2013. I’m really excited about launching the first series of posts for this new Faith Post Friday adventure. So here’s how it will work…each month a different “My Journey of Faith” team leader will choose a topic to write about. Every Friday, you will see one of us posting to the blog about our topic. The idea for this month’s topic came pretty easily for me…invisibility. I’ve spoken to a …

He Hears

It has been one of those weeks. Sometimes I have felt as if I could hardly breathe. I have been weepy and my emotions are raw. Usually when I feel this way it is because I am tired from lack of sleep or exhausted from traveling or even tired from doing “good” things that I know are worthwhile. Sometimes I feel something else is going on. It involves the spiritual realm; I know God is up to something involving me in some way especially if I am being obedient to God’s leading. A spiritual battle is raging and I feel …
