Mini-devotional - Don't be anxious
these often repeated verses are so important for the Christian. We are susceptible to worry, apprehension, and fear. Even though we trust in the true and living God there are times when we are anxious, not praying, and not being thankful. These words remind us of who God is. You see, there is a relationship between how much we trust God and how much we worry. Since God is the creator of the universe, the sovereign Lord, the one who became man and died for our sins, and we should not be worried about our lives. We need trust him even beyond our ability to comprehend.
That is what true faith is. Faith measured by the amount of trust you put in God when everything around you encourages you to be unsettled. So, as you put your faith and hope in the living God, through the person of Jesus, you are free to not be anxious and to give all things to God in prayer and experience the peace that God brings. It's real, just as real as God is.
Going to North Carolina
I have a friend out there who is trying to find a restaurant with a large enough room to hold maybe 20 or so people. When we get the information I will post it on CARM and provide a link to it here in the newsletter for anyone else who might want to join in.
Again, if there are any CARM-ites out there who would like to get together for dinner or something, please e-mail me at [email protected] and I will contact you later with more details.
Why two? Different people are requesting difference purposes from the blogs. Some people want the CARM podcasting blog only for podcasting related issues while others are interested in CARM only. I figured I would just list two of them and see what happens.
I have over 20,000 people on this newsletter list. I figure there's a lot of resources out there. So, I thought it would ask if anyone knows of any other quotes like this. You see, I'm trying to collect such quotes for a paper on atheism. The atheists like to attack Christianity by saying things like Hitler was a Christian, et cetera. So, I'm looking for quotes that demonstrate detestable behavior based upon atheistic and/or evolutionary principles. If you know of any, with documentation so I can check them out, please e-mail them to me at [email protected] Thanks.
