HOW TO GROW IN YOUR FAITH


“And now, just as you accepted Christ Jesus as your Lord, you must continue to follow Him. Let your roots grow down into Him, and let your lives be built on Him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness.” (Colossians 2:6-7)

A year ago today, I felt distant from God.

Sure, I was attending church most Sundays and striving to make Christ-like decisions in my life, but my actual relationship with the Father had grown stagnant. The bible continuously talks about the importance of growth in this relationship, so we know that simply going through the motions doesn’t suffice.

HOW TO STOP OVERTHINKING


Picture this: you’ve just crawled into bed after what seemed like a great day. You turn off the light, close your eyes, and prepare for a peaceful doze into sleep.

And then the overthinking begins.

You obsess over everything you said that day and beat yourself up over everything that you didn't. You replay conversations over and over again in your mind, agonizing over the smallest of details and analyzing all the ways in which you could've been wrongly perceived. You spend hours ruminating on these thoughts, rehashing the past until everything that seemed good at first now becomes nothing more than a place for worry and distress.

Such is the problem of over-thinkers.
