I first wrote about Aly's story in March. Back then she had just been caught living a double life. Because of God's grace, she's not in that pit anymore. Check out her radical story of redemption.
This is why theology matters. This is why we all need to know what we believe about God and build a foundation of faith straight from His Word. Hard times will come. Circumstances we didn't expect will take things we didn't want to lose. Storms will roll in, winds will blow, and we will suffer loss. But you don't have to feel hopeless. You don't have to wrestle with disillusionment or fractured faith when life doesn't turn out like you've planned. If you know who God is, you can face the storm knowing that you serve a good God who is always working for your good and His glory.
Have you ever found yourself hating the very guy you were obsessed with just a couple weeks before? I have.
Recently, I read through the Song of Solomon. It tells the red-hot, passionate love story of a king and his new bride—not exactly what you expected to read in the Bible, I'm guessing. What surprised me most was that this lovesick bride urgently warns her girlfriends over and over not to arouse or awaken love until it so desires (until it's time). Why would she want them to be so careful when she had found such an incredible gift? I wondered.
The older I get, the more people inform me that I can't "just" be friends with a guy. They keep telling me that every guy/girl relationship has an underlying current of romance. While I'll agree that a relationship can easily turn that way, I don't think that all relationships are destined to do so.
Why on earth do I hang on to my money (make that His money) so tightly when God makes such grand promises about how He'll provide everything I need when I give cheerfully and generously to others?
Our culture touts sibling rivalry as "normal" and says that friends, not siblings, are the natural choice for support. But does that line up with God's plan?
It turns out that these days stars who are known for good behavior are the only ones getting movie deals, magazine cover shoots, and million dollar contracts. Actresses who are wild can't get a break and are no longer getting paid. Why the shift? Because of you!
I've been a Christian for
eleven years, and I have to admit, I have not yet gotten through the whole
It's hard to know people when
you don't let them see you ... really see you. And it's hard to see others when
you're busy trying to keep all hands and feet inside your shell at all times.
As is often the case, when we put pop culture through the
filter of God's Word, we rarely find an answer that is black and white. Instead
let's look at some biblical principles together and see how they speak to girls
on both sides of the Bieber fence.
Did you know LYWB blogger Hannah Farver just wrote her first book? Listen in as I talk to her about it.
As Christians we need to be
careful not to offer our extreme devotion to anything but Jesus. But doing so
isn't always automatic.
Since this is a blog about lies and truth, I wanted to take the time to
address Osama's death in light of God's Word. As you consider the world event,
I want to urge you to keep God's Word in mind. More importantly, as you talk
about the death of Osama Bin Laden with your family, in your classes, and among
your friends, I hope you will seize the opportunity to point others toward
If you're a little like me—you don't understand why modesty
matters, you don't know for sure if your clothing is modest or not, and you
don't fully grasp why what you wear matters to the guys your around—consider
this a wake-up call. After reading this post and watching the video, you
will have to face the fact that what you wear matters and that immodesty is
truly everyone's problem.
You may think of meekness
as a wimpy sort of thing, but meek women actually exhibit a powerful strength.
As we're investigating the
topic of modesty this month, it is important to realize that submission to authority
plays a huge role in being a truly beautiful, modest woman.
When she first wrote to us, Ruby was a teenager fighting
cancer without a relationship with Jesus. But that's just the beginning of her
story. In fact, Ruby's story is one of the reasons we keep writing away on this
blog. God used this site to heal her in more ways than one. God used you to
speak to her heart in a huge way.
