Spiritual Awakening: The Importance of Speaking
Most of the time, in any relationship, whether it be with people or our relationship with Christ, we forget how to communicate with one another. Things like bitterness, hurt, envy, pride, and many other offenses intrude our minds, heart and speech. We just need to find out how to get back to right communication with one another. Do you find in any of your relationships this question come about... "Why do we always have to argue about everything!?" without a solution? We found there are always answers that work. Not only saying, "This is the problem.", but also giving a solution. The answers are found in The Truth, The Holy Bible, and The Word of God. If you seek His ways instead of your own... you are acting in obedience, trusting His way and His Word. Watch Him take on the battle for right relationships and communication, restored and redeemed, through following Christ.
