Dear Mom Who Refuses to Rest  – “If you’re tired, it’s a good indication that you’ve neglected rest…and resting in Him.”

Changing Fools  – “It’s true of you today, and it’ll always be true of you until glory – your heart is susceptible to foolishness. But you also need to remember this: there is no foolishness too reckless for grace’s wisdom.”

Are You Satisfied in Jesus?  – “Imagine losing all contact with those you love. No opportunity to see your husband or friends or children, or even to hear their voices over the phone. Imagine being completely by yourself, twenty-four hours a day.  Would Jesus be enough to satisfy you?”

Contentment is Like a Discomobile  – A video (05:47) by Jessie Minassian from LifeLoveandGod.com  that explores the question: “A “content” single girl doesn’t long for a relationship on Valentine’s Day . . . does she?”

Would Everybody Please Leave Me Alone?  – “Jesus withdrew because he knew his first job was to fuel his soul by connecting with his Father—alone. He couldn’t pour out what he hadn’t first been given from God.”

10 Articles on Pornography  – A Tim Challies collection of important articles.

The Most Glorious Cure  – Do you ever think about what mark you will leave on this world when you are gone?  I do.  Here is a moving tribute to a young man who used his limited time here wisely.  “Elliott fought the good fight. He finished the race. The last time I spoke to him–a few days before he passed away–he talked about caring for his dear wife and longing for heaven. I asked him what song we could sing. He said, “In Christ Alone.” Very fitting. That’s how he lived, and that was the comfort in which he died.”

10 Scriptures for Everyday Encouragement  – 10 Scripture Verses from Creative Home Keeper that can be printed out for encouragement and reminders throughout the day.

In Christ alone my hope is found,
He is my light, my strength, my song;
this Cornerstone, this solid Ground,
firm through the fiercest drought and storm.
What heights of love, what depths of peace,
when fears are stilled, when strivings cease!
My Comforter, my All in All,
here in the love of Christ I stand.

In Christ alone! who took on flesh
Fulness of God in helpless babe!
This gift of love and righteousness
Scorned by the ones he came to save:
Till on that cross as Jesus died,
The wrath of God was satisfied –
For every sin on Him was laid;
Here in the death of Christ I live.

There in the ground His body lay
Light of the world by darkness slain:
Then bursting forth in glorious Day
Up from the grave he rose again!
And as He stands in victory
Sin’s curse has lost its grip on me,
For I am His and He is mine –
Bought with the precious blood of Christ.

No guilt in life, no fear in death,
This is the power of Christ in me;
From life’s first cry to final breath.
Jesus commands my destiny.
No power of hell, no scheme of man,
Can ever pluck me from His hand;
Till He returns or calls me home,
Here in the power of Christ I’ll stand.
