Fr. Mike Schmitz – If you’re not feeling loved

In what is probably one of the best videos I’ve watched lately, Fr. Mike Schmitz from Ascension Presents’ YouTube channel addresses the topic of not feeling loved (by the people in your life) and how to handle it in a Christian worldview. I’ve found the Biblical example of Leah from The Old Testament particularly moving.

Let me know what you think about this topic. Do you agree with his advice? How do you think Christians should handle the emotions that stem from not feeling loved?

7 truths to remind yourself when you are in a difficult spiritual battle

The apostle Paul warns us that, in this life, we are in a constant spiritual battle against evil and the enemy’s forces (Ephesians 6:12). Sometimes, the spiritual battles can get difficult. I want to share this short list of 7 truths that you should remind yourself when you feel overwhelmed fighting the good fight:

  1. God is good (Luke 18:19)
  2. His grace is sufficient (2 Corinthians 12:9)
  3. You are a child of God (Galatians 4:7)
  4. You don’t have to be afraid (Philippians 4:6)
  5. He is able (Ephesians 3:20)
  6. You are a new creation in Christ (2 Corinthians 5:17)
  7. Be still and know that He is God (Psalm 46:10)

God bless you!
