    I want to know what it means to prosper, or to be powerful, as a Christian. And I suppose I mean in general terms. Is a prosperous Christian one who has been blessed with wealth and family? What about the Christians in the middle east that have a sword to their necks? If they hold the law in their hearts, are they to still be considered prosperous? What does it mean to prosper in this age in God’s economy?

  10. L: Comparison is the thief of JOY

    trying to live a single person’s ideal life as a married, invested mom of 3 is like putting your right glove on your left hand. It kind of fits, but is very uncomfortable and you just want to take it off. The result is bitterness, a lot of stress and feeling small because you “haven’t accomplished anything”.
