Do you understand that the scriptures are the only words that truly comfort? Join me over at Satisfaction through Christ as I discuss this.

Why Won’t You Let Me Comfort You With Scripture?

  Have you ever been in a situation when a friend or family member needed comfort? You use Scripture to try and comfort them and all they do is push it away!  If the person you are comforting is an unbeliever it is understandable that they would not receive it. God tells us in His word, "The word of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing." 1 Corinthians 1:18. BUT, what if the one you are trying to comfort is a believer and they push it away?

Events happen all the time that make us say, "What am I supposed to do with this junk?" Here are three truths to remember when life hands you trash.

When Life Hands You Trash

Sometimes life hands you trash. Do you get rid of it as soon as possible or try to make the best of it?   Not long ago, our printer died. We did our best to resurrect it, but . . . we failed. So, late one night we set it at the end of our driveway, hoping one of the trash collectors who scout the neighborhood would be happy to take it away for pieces or recycling or … {Read More}
