It sounds so right. And that’s because it is, in one sense, absolutely true. Jesus should be our all-in-all. He should be enough.
But there’s another sense in which I think it’s wrong to give us singles the impression that Jesus can satisfy that stab we feel inside when we look at someone else’s wedding photos or hold someone else’s baby.
Let me explain...

Hm, never thought about that...
Several of my friends have married and started their families. I’ve noticed that parents seem to have a renewed excitement for Christmas. And the thrill doesn’t come from finding the latest high-tech gadget under the tree. It comes from watching their children’s joy.
I have decided to translate this concept into my own holiday project. Each day I will look for little ways I can bless and serve my parents, brother and sisters — waking up early for coffee with my dad, helping Mom around the house, writing notes of love to my sisters. I suspect that as I look for ways to make their holidays special, I will discover some joy of my own.
From today's article, "Making it a Merry Christmas"
Whether Christmas traditions are lagging, your family has a new member, or your parents have moved into a new house, Christmas may feel different than it used to.
Last year I realized too late that something was wrong. Instead of treasuring the time I had with my family, I had wasted it feeling like a victim. This year I’m making a few Christmas resolutions.
boundless.org If Christmas and the holidays with your family leave you feeling depressed, it may be time for some new resolutions. Here are some ideas.
I want to dwell more on the birth of Jesus and what His birth means for the world, my community and my life, but too often that goal remains elusive because I don’t have any practical ideas for how to introduce moments of reflection into my day to day life.

From today's blog post, "What Christmas Movies Teach Us About Relationships"
I don’t know about you, but I love a good Christmas flick. Each holiday season I cozy up to the TV to watch favorites such as “Rudolph…,” “White Christmas” and “Elf.” Not only are these films entertaining, but they can also be educational when it comes to dating and relationships. Here are seven seasonal movies that teach us something about romance.

I want to know who told that kid to play drums 🥁
I hate knocking on doors, especially on Christmas Eve. Especially at a hipster apartment complex with an onsite dog park and a zillion tiny balconies overlooking the Priuses. Especially for the fourth time, when I know somebody’s home because I can hear a gooey Josh Groban song blaring through the door.
“It’s Network Cable,” I yell, knocking harder. “Somebody schedule a service call?”
There’s movement at the peephole as the music goes silent. “Can I see some identification?” asks a suspicious voice...

"Man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart” (1 Samuel 16:7). What a relief, right?
Well … maybe not.
Perhaps the thought of finding security in the idea of inner beauty should make some of us feel a bit uneasy. Consider the words of Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn:
"The line separating good and evil passes not through states, nor between classes, nor between political parties, either, but right through every human heart."
I must admit there are days when my heart looks like a blackened piece of catfish. Seared with sin. Charred with pride and self-centeredness. There’s not a whole lot of beauty to be found in it, and instead of fearing the Lord, I find myself fearing more what other people think. “What comes out of the mouth gets its start in the heart,” Jesus said. “It’s from the heart that we vomit up evil arguments, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, lies and cussing” (Matthew 15:18, 19, The Message).

I could see the worry on my friend’s face. He had been dating his girlfriend for six months and didn’t know if he should start planning a proposal or a breakup. It was a ripe time to choose.
I know others who have faced similar situations, so I asked my married friends on Facebook how they knew they should marry their spouse. Here are their answers.
boundless.org I asked my married friends how they knew they should marry their spouse. Here are their answers.
We talked about things you should sacrifice for a relationship, but what about the things you shouldn't sacrifice?
What would you add to the list?
boundless.org Close relationships require sacrifice, compromise and humility. But there are some things you shouldn’t completely give up for the other person.
Take a leap of faith, be vulnerable and admit you need the love, grace and forgiveness Jesus gives us all. The next time you fall into temptation by looking at porn, talk to someone about it. It doesn’t have to be a face-to-face conversation with your pastor. Send an email to a trusted friend asking for help. Start a blog about how God’s grace is bigger than your struggle. Ask for advice in Christian social media groups, which are full of people in the same boat with you. You will find the support you need because you’re not the only one struggling with pornography.
boundless.org If you talk about it, I guarantee you’ll find other Christian men and women who are right there with you, needing prayer, encouragement and guidance to overcome the same problem.
There are many reasons for grieving, not all of them related to physical death. Some grieve the death of hopes and plans, as the years of singleness, childlessness, or chronic illness accumulate. Others grieve the families they once had, now divided by divorce. Still, others miss the ease of family celebrations before this new, blended family arrangement hit them.

It’s like he tried to do an end run around the appropriate process of winning your heart. He wants the reward without the work. If you’re going to have a change of heart toward him, it won’t be because he tells you that you should.
boundless.org I am a bit confused and bothered because I do not share this "revelation" at all.
Be careful not to forge God’s signature on a decision or an action.
boundless.org Ever heard these words, "I just really feel like God is telling me to..."? People say this quite a bit and most sincerely believe it.
My girlfriend and I have been dating for about a year and a half. Eight months or so in, we fell in sexual temptation and started having sex regularly, along with sharing a bed. Later, I was strongly convicted about our sinful habits and made the choice to stop engaging in them. When I told her about this, she agreed that the sex was wrong but that she needed to sleep with me because the way she shows and receives love is physical touch.
I feel that any act like this (sleeping with each other, cuddling in private or unsupervised) could lead us right back into the sin that we were living in. She says that sleeping together is something she absolutely needs or she thinks it will be impossible to continue the relationship. Thoughts? Suggestions? I want to honor God in our relationship.
