Self-Help Books

This morning as I was studying the Bible, the thought came to me about the popularity of all the self help books in production today.  As I pondered this, I realized the Christ was not in any of them I had read and they seemed to promote “self-reliance” which I find offensive.  The more I recognize my dependence on God, the more I depend upon Him.  The more I turn to Him with any and all challenges without human will and human outlining, the more Good I experience in my life.

John 15:5 states “I am the vine; you are the branches.  If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.”  Today I will be grateful for all lessons, which become blessings as I understand more.

Necessity, not Luxury

Often, one may think spending alone time with God is a luxury he cannot afford, when actually, it is a necessity.  We become more centered , joyful and ready for life when God is at the helm.  John 15:5 reads, “I am the vine; you are the branches.  If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.”

My day goes smoother when I begin with alone time with Him.
