Poor thinking, negative thoughts, believing lies, mistrust and so many of the other things that have a way of creeping into our minds are going to happen. We shouldn’t be surprised when they do. Where we get into trouble is when we dwell on them and let them take a prominent place. The sooner we can recognize them and turn them over to God the better. The more we practice this the easier it gets.

What’s it going to be?

Every decision, every action even every thought has its roots in either fear or trust. We can choose right now, in the days ahead and in this wonderful New Year to operate out of trust. We can learn to recognize when fear is having its way in our lives and increase our ability to break free.

“Said don’t look back you can never look back. I thought I knew what love was, what did I know? Those days are gone forever, I should just let them go but-” We don’t have to fall into the same old traps, habits and patterns that we fell into yesterday. This is a brand new day filled with the opportunity to receive and then give away the perfect love of our God. The choice is ours, let’s not keep making the wrong one(s).

There are many in the world with this view. Most refer to themselves as atheists, which is a term whose Greek root means without God. Atheists tend to be skeptical of the supernatural and have a number of reasons they deny the existence of Deity, among them, the lack of empirical evidence, the problem of evil and the existence of inconsistent revelations. Other lines of thinking that play into many atheists philosophy are; the law of parsimony, the case of non-belief and they believe the burden of proof should be on we who say there is a God and not on them to prove there isn’t. Well this is already a mouthful; maybe this is going to take longer than I thought. Tomorrow we’ll start digging into each of these arguments and explore some answers so we will be better able to love folks that don’t know God at all.
