Who Are You? (Truth CAS)

Who Are You?

The world may provide many suggestions based on what you’ve done… or not done.  You may be searching to find your identity, unsure of who you are now.  You may be fighting shame and guilt, or insecurity and uncertainty.  You may have even provided an identity for yourself.  A label that you go by.

But is it accurate?

What Does God Think of You?

I hear that God loves me, but I often mess up.  I don’t do what God asks… I don’t reflect God’s love… I have good days and bad days when it comes to walking in accordance with my faith.

I wonder sometimes, how does God see me?  You too?

Check out these thoughts from Pastor Matt Fuller to discover how you can simultaneously be perfect… and flawed… yet loved by God.


Tell me about Christian Fasting (in a couple of minutes!)

Fasting is another tool for Spiritual Fitness.  But what does the Bible say about fasting?  Here’s a quick video to get you started:


NOTE: We recommend consulting with your health care provider before undertaking any fast.  For some conditions, fasting could be harmful.

No Such Thing As Unanswered Prayer?

It’s 1990 and Garth Brooks has released a song that peaks my interest… and changes my perspective on prayer.  The song is called “Unanswered Prayers.”

Image result for images garth brooks unanswered prayersThe song tells the story of a man who encounters an old high school flame and recalls how he used to pray that God would “make her mine.”  Spoiler alert: It didn’t work out.

But as the man encounters this old flame, he realizes that she wasn’t “the one” and he realizes how grateful he is God didn’t answer his high school era prayer.

There’s just one problem with this song and this philosophy on answered prayers.

A Special Merry Christmas!

Christmas is a day where we celebrate the arrival of the Prince of Peace.

But as you probably know, peace is elusive… it’s not a natural state for humans.  It requires people who will actively help it along, maintain it, and restore it when necessary.  So before wishing everyone the traditional “Merry Christmas,” let’s take a minute to be mindful of those who:

  • are deployed and separated from families
  • are working a long shift on patrol, or on call
  • will stop what they’re doing to come to our aid, no matter the weather or time, or anything else for that matter

From all us at The Xena Project, thank you warriors, for helping us have peace on earth.  I pray for the day when we can manage to live in peace on our own, but I recognize the need for what you do tirelessly, day in and day out.  Keep fighting the good fight!

And thank you to the families, who are there to support in many aspects… who serve and suffer in ways we may never recognize.  Thanks for your service as well!

Finally, lest we forget the real significance of this day, I turn it over to the wisest cartoon character I know:
