Steve Arterburn has a dynamite website! New Life has something for everyone. A blog; radio; events, news and updates; new life moments; tips; workshops and more, we can all find what we need at New Life. I wish to link to Steve today, because I found help there this morning that addressed my own issues so effectively. My favorite hang out is his "Articles" section, where you can find help on about any issue that affects mankind. He draws source from scripture and applies it in sensible ways to help us all in language we understand.
From his Articles section, here are but a few excellent articles:
Letting Love In
In Times of Grief
10 Ways You Can Overcome Anger
This is a very small sampling of the help Steve Arterburn has for you today! Here is a link to the first page of his Articles Category.
I get a daily mailing from crosswalk.com, and Steve Arterburn is often found there as well.
From Yesterday's Article, Humor:
"When I first came to faith in Christ, however, I was under the impression that I had to give up humor and become very solemn and serious. Soon the part of me that loved to smile and laugh began to wither."
He wholeheartedly advises not to take this route.
"But I didn’t want that aspect of my personality to die. It was a unique part of me that God had created." God doesn't want that part of us to die either!
He will yet fill your mouth with laughter and your lips with shouts of joy. (Job 8:21)
And from Stephen's article, Service:
"Finding a way to help others is an expression of faith. It shows that we believe in the sovereignty of God. We don’t’ have to wait until the pain in our life is gone, because we know God can use it for good."
Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms. (1 Peter 4:10)
