Pride – the Deadliest of Sins

by Harold and Bette Gillogly Ever wonder why “deadly sins” are called “deadly sins”?  It must be because they are …well …deadly. Capable of destroying you.  Take for instance, PRIDE.  It might just be the deadliest of all sins. Why do you think that is? In Proverbs 6:16-19, God lists 7 things He hates, and […]

How to Get Those “Forgivey Feelings”

by Harold and Bette Gillogly So you chose to forgive, but you still don’t have those “forgivey feelings”?  You didn’t wake up one morning and say, “I’m not going to feel resentment toward that guy anymore”?  That’s because it simply doesn’t happen that way.  Want to know the secret to “feeling forgivey”?  Your feelings will […]

Oh, Those Little Irritations

By Harold & Bette Gillogly Some days everything bothers me.  Like a pebble in my shoe.  And I’m just irritable… grumpy at everybody.  Can you identify? By evening, I’m left with a wasted day.  I let little irritations enslave me and steal all my joy.  And I was a generous grump, spreading irritableness in my […]

Reconciliation Is Not Just a Nice Thought

By Harold & Bette Gillogly God commands us to be reconciled to one another.  It’s a command, not just a nice goal to think about or wish for.  Each of us is commanded to reconcile with both the one who offended us (Matthew 18:15) AND the one we offended (Matthew 523-24).  Whoa!  Even if your […]

Forgiveness…might just be the most beautiful word in the English language.  Since all we wrote about last month was fighting and anger, fuedin’ and fussin,’ it’s about time to talk about how to stop all that and find resolution and reconciliation.  And that’s where forgiveness comes in. You see, if we don’t forgive, the acid […]

The Day I Knew I Knew

by Bette Gillogly I was hot and tired as I trudged back to the women’s dorm.  The afternoon was too warm for early October in the mountains of Southern West Virginia.  And after cleaning every bathroom on campus – without air conditioning, I might add – I was ready for an ice cold drink and […]

Forgiveness

by Patrick & Dwaina Six Several years ago, we faced a difficult and stressful situation.  Feelings of hurt, fear, and frustration festered and ultimately turned into anger. As the anger took root, it threatened to change us into bitter, disillusioned people.  We had to make a choice.  Holding on to the anger meant risking damage […]

The High Cost of Divorce

The truth is no one ever emerges from divorce unscathed.  Everyone involved is permanently harmed. Everyone understands there will be immediate trauma to the divorcing couple, but few realize the lingering emotional and psychological effects. For example, research by Judith Wallerstein with the California Children of Divorce Project shows an especially dismal future for women […]

The Faces of Forgiveness (Pt. 2 of 2)

Forgiveness.  A subject so deep and wide, most of us flounder around in it, struggling just to stay afloat.  To be honest, we’re in way over our heads, like ducks that haven’t quite gotten the hang of swimming.  To make things worse, the people we rub against every day have a way of ruffling our […]
