Did you wake up this morning wondering what other horrible event occurred in the world overnight? Do you watch the news and think that things can’t possibly get any worse? Do you wonder how you are going to survive in a world that is going increasingly crazy?

If so, you are not alone.

Even those who are ignorant of Bible prophecy sense that our world is no longer “business as usual.” Instead, wrong is called right, evil is called good, and the lie is called the truth. Plain and simple, we’ve lost our way because we’ve chosen to get off the straight and narrow path.

So, how do those of us who want to stay on the straight and narrow path cope with a world that is putting up more and more obstacles to walking on that path?

Here are three eternal principles that are working for me. As you apply them to your life, they will work for you as well.

1–FAITH. Let your faith be only in God, never in man. Man can be deceived. Man can go astray. Man can be a dangerous leader. In John 2: 24, the Bible reveals Christ’s attitude toward man: “But Jesus didn’t trust them, because he knew human nature.” 

2–HOPE. Never lose hope, no matter how bad things get. Hope is the undergirding of faith and essential to exercising faith. Jesus is our Hope (1 Timothy 1: 1).

3–LOVE. Never stop loving, no matter how unloveable a person may be. Love never fails (1 Corinthians 13: 8). The more we love, the more we become like God.

Now, it’s YOUR turn:  How do you live in a world gone crazy?  Please leave a comment in the box below.

THE TWO ESSENTIAL KEYS TO A BLESSED LIFE

by Dr. MaryAnn Diorio

This year, Lord willing, I will celebrate my 73rd birthday. For nearly 48 of those years, I have been a follower of Jesus Christ. During this time, I have learned many things, but if I were to summarize the ingredients necessary for living a blessed life, I would boil down those ingredients to only two: 1) Hear God’s voice and 2) Obey God’s voice. 

HEARING God’s Voice

Scripture tells us that Jesus did only what He saw the Father doing (John 5: 19). In other words, Jesus took His instructions for everything He did from His Father. If we want to be like Jesus, we must do the same.

But you may be asking how? How can I “see” what the Father is doing so that I can do it, too?

The answer lies in hearing God’s voice. Learning to hear God’s voice is foundational in our Christian walk. It is the most important activity we need to cultivate in order that we can obey God.

So, how do we hear God’s voice? 

1. We hear God’s voice by reading His Word. This is the starting point for hearing God’s voice. God speaks to us primarily through His Word. The Bible is God’s love letter to us, written for our instruction. It teaches us how to live for God and for His purposes. It is our manual for life.

2. We hear God’s voice by spending time with Him in prayer. Prayer is a two-way conversation with God. When we pray, God speaks to us and we respond. 

For many years, I have kept a journal of my conversations with God. Often, I will ask Him a question and then write down the thoughts He brings to my mind in response to my question.

3. We hear God’s voice in our dreams. God speaks to us through our dreams. Pay attention to your dreams. Record them, and then ask Holy Spirit what they mean.

Remember this: God wants to communicate with you. He wants to speak to you. He wants you to hear His voice daily. So expect God to speak to you.


OBEYING God’s Voice

Once we hear God’s voice, we are responsible to obey it. It is our obedience that brings God’s blessings into our lives. Scripture says this in James 1: 22: “But don’t just listen to God’s word. You must do what it says. Otherwise, you are only fooling yourselves.”  

If we hear God’s Word but do not obey it, we are deceiving ourselves. But when we hear God’s Word and obey it, we will experience the abundant life of blessings that Jesus died to give us.

Now, it’s YOUR turn:  How do you hear God’s voice?  Please leave a comment in the box below.

________________________________________

Today I have the great honor of welcoming friend and fellow author, Mary Dolan Flaherty, to Matters of the Heart. 

MARYANN:
Hello, Mary. Welcome to “Matters of the Heart”! It’s good to have you here. 

MARY:
Thank you for inviting me, MaryAnn. It’s an honor and a privilege to be here.

MARYANN:
Mary, please tell us a little about yourself and your writing. When did you first know that God called you to write for Him?

MARY:
I’m married and have two grown children, one of whom I work for. I love the outdoors and wanted to be either a park ranger or a writer when I was in high school. Many jobs later, I’m finally doing one of them. I’m too old to be a park ranger.

I began writing music during a difficult time in my life in the early 90s. It was a way to work through the pain, and many of my songs were used in our worship service at church. From there, I produced two music CDs of original music, and then stopped altogether. A few years ago, I was at a luncheon with some women I’d met in a Bible study, and one woman shared that she was invited to speak at a function at our church. After I congratulated her, I told the group, “You know, I have so much to say and nowhere to say it.” Another woman responded with, “Start a blog!” I didn’t even know what a blog was, but I researched it and started one that weekend. Everything just evolved from there.

MARYANN:
You just released your first book, Spectacles of Hope. Please tell us a little about this book. What is it about and why did you write it?

MARY:
Spectacles of Hope is a story about an insecure man named Ralph Gouda who has a set of triplets living in his head. These pesky tenants, named Shoulda, Woulda, and Coulda, keep Ralph in bondage to negative thinking by telling him what he should have said, would have done, and could have been…until two special people enter his life who help him change his thinking.

I wrote Spectacles of Hope because I saw a need for hope in the world around me. I heard people beating themselves up over and over, using these “shoulda/woulda/coulda” statements. I’m an overcomer, and I wanted a tool that I could use to offer hope to others.

MARYANN:
I love that you used the allegory as the framework for your fascinating and insightful story. What advantages did using this form afford you in writing your story?

MARY:
I wanted to write a book on overcoming negative thinking, and the original non-fiction idea I had just wasn’t working. There are so many “self-help” books out there that people can become inundated by them, and I don’t have credentials that would substantiate my work. An allegory is an innovative—and fun—way to write about an issue, and an equally rewarding way to read about one without feeling bogged down. The discussion questions offer the reader or small group the opportunity to dig deeper if they wish.

MARYANN:
Do you have a typical writing day? If so, what is it like?

MARY:
I wish! Unfortunately (or fortunately, for my writing career!) I work a full-time job, and I don’t sit down to write every day. When I’m working on a project, I’m able to discipline myself to set aside an hour or so after dinner, but every December for the past two years, I seem to meet my goals and I give myself a few weeks off to enjoy Christmas preparations and celebrations. Because I wrote a book that deals with shouldas, wouldas, and couldas, I’ve learned to be kind to myself. It’s okay if my writing is sporadic.

MARYANN:
Indeed. We need to take a realistic approach and write in accordance with the priorities of our lifestyle. Are you working on another writing project? If so, would you like to tell us a little about it?

MARY:
I recently finished my first novel called The Color of Forgiveness, a coming-of-age novel that deals with the family dynamics of alcoholism, the greater need for love and belonging, and a young girl’s search for God. It’s currently with my editor and once I make revisions, I will be seeking representation. I’m very excited to have finished a full-length novel, and have ideas for a second.

MARYANN:
Congratulations and praise the Lord! Writing a novel is no small feat! What advice would you give to an aspiring writer?

MARY:
The advice that has always been given to me is “just write.” It seems too simple, but it’s great advice. The more we write, the better we become. Don’t worry about its being perfect, because it never will be. Even after your fifth or tenth revision, you’ll still say, “Oh, I don’t like that.” If you only think about what you want to write, it will never get written, and that great line you kept in your head will eventually get crowded out by other, more demanding ones. If you don’t write it down, you’ll lose it. Take a class, go to a conference or a workshop, join a writing group. Share your work and learn about critique. But don’t ever let anyone change your voice. You have a story to share that can only come from you. Don’t give up. Keep going even when you think it stinks.

MARYANN:
Great advice, Mary! Where can readers obtain a copy of your book?

MARY:
Currently, it is available on amazon.com in paperback or Kindle version.

MARYANN:
Mary, thank you so much for being with us today. You have been a blessing!

MARY:
Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to share my story with your readers. It’s been a blessing as well.

MARYANN:
I encourage you to obtain a copy of Mary’s book, Spectacles of Hope, and to tell others about her insightful book. It will bless you! You may learn more about Mary and her ministry at her website: http://www.SonRiseInsights.com.

WHEN THINGS ARE GOING WELL, BEWARE!

I was a baby Christian and had just experienced an amazing encounter with God. I was “on top of the world,” as the old saying goes. Little did I realize that very soon, I would topple from that summit into a terribly challenging situation. 

I had just accepted Christ as my Savior and Lord. As the Lord often does with His new babies, He showered me with the “warm fuzzies” of amazing “coincidences,” quick answers to prayer, and a voracious desire to spread the Gospel. All seemed to be going smoothly. 

So, imagine my surprise when, after an exciting experience of bringing several new people into the Kingdom, my balloon was pierced with a major attack from Satan–an attack that sent me reeling and left me totally bewildered. 

What had happened? How had I suddenly plummeted from the heights of spiritual ecstasy to the depths of spiritual despair?  How had I, in the span of only a few minutes, gone from an exciting spiritual encounter with God to a potentially devastating situation which broadsided me unawares?

Today–from the perspective of many years of growing in Christ–I understand what happened. But back then, I was clueless.

Perhaps you, too, have experienced a spiritual high in Christ only to be followed by a brutal fall off the cliff into spiritual and emotional anguish. If so, you too, will want to know why this happened and what you can do to prevent a similar situation in the future.


THE WHY

First, let’s look at why we can fall from a spiritual high to a spiritual low in a matter of seconds:

1–Satan is always on the prowl to divide and destroy. He especially hates Christ-followers. Scripture tells us this in 1 Peter 5: 8: “Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour.” 

Lions stalk their prey quietly. So does Satan. Lions are very patient. So is Satan. Lions attack suddenly. So does Satan.

Remember this: We fall when we fail to stay alert to the enemy.

2–Satan deceives us best when life is best. When things are going well, we are in a more relaxed state. We are enjoying life and not paying attention to the danger that lurks just around the corner. We are deceived into thinking that the spiritual high will last forever. In short, we let our guard down.

A lion looks for the moment when its prey lets its guard down. At that moment, the lion attacks suddenly.

So, we must never let down our guard, especially when things are going well. 

3-Satan’s lie looks like the truth. Satan’s chief device is deception. If he can get us to think that the lie is the truth, he has us.

The only antidote to Satan’s device of deception is to keep ourselves grounded in the Word and to speak the Word whenever we hear Satan’s roar.

THE HOW

Now let’s look at how Satan attacks us:

1.  Where there is unity, he tries to divide. Be it in a marriage, a family, a church, a business–Satan will always try to cause division. Be on the alert for any signs of division. Be on the watch for any person or persons stirring up division. Deal with division quickly. Nip it in the bud before it bears its ugly fruit:  a divorce, a church split, a failed business.

2. Where there is purity, he tries to corrupt. This happens most often in relationships. An engaged couple who have remained virgins are tempted to have sex before marriage. A person listens to gossip about a lifelong friend and believes it. An unhappy wife who has been faithful to her husband yields to the adulterous advances of a co-worker.

3. Where there is truth, he introduces the lie.  Satan does this by whispering a doubt-inducing question into our minds: Did God really say? It is the same question he used to tempt Eve, and the same question he has been using ever since. If Satan’s question causes us to question God, then we have stepped fully into Satan’s trap.

Since that day many years ago when I unwittingly fell into Satan’s trap, I have learned to be more alert to his evil devices. I have learned that whenever God is at work, Satan is also at work. I have also learned that it is when I think things are going well that I must be the most careful.

As God’s Holy Word warns us in 1 Corinthians 10: 12, “If you think you are standing firm, be careful that you don’t fall.”

Now, it’s YOUR turn:  Have you ever been broadsided by Satan?  Please leave a comment in the box below.

WHAT TO DO WHEN YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO

by Dr. MaryAnn Diorio

“Guard your heart above all else, for it determines
the course of your life.” ~ Proverbs 4:23

“Matters of the Heart: is a weekly blog that deals with the deepest issues of the human heart, the issues we all face but sometimes don’t want to talk about.

Have you ever been in a situation where you just didn’t know what to do? You feel overwhelmed, confused, paralyzed. There are so many choices before you, you’re afraid of making the wrong one. Or there is only one right choice before you, and you don’t like what it looks like.


Having been in this kind of situation, I can relate. But I also can share what I learned that might help you when facing seemingly impossible situations when you just don’t know what to do.  

1. PRAY.  We may not know what to do, but God always does. So when we ask Him for wisdom about how to handle a situation, He will always grant us wisdom. He promises us as much in James 1: 5: If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and he will give it to you. He will not rebuke you for asking.”

2. BELIEVE. No matter how difficult our situation may seem, God always comes through for us when we believe that He will.  When it looked as though Jairus’ daughter had died, Jesus said to him, “Don’t be afraid. Just believe, and she will be healed” (Luke 8: 50). And the child was raised back to life!

3. TRUST. When we ask God for help, we must believe that He will help us. Psalm 46: 1 assures us that God is “always ready to help in times of trouble.”  As we focus on this truth and not on our circumstances, we will discover that God will show us what to do when we don’t know what to do.

Now, it’s YOUR turn:  What do you do when you don’t know what to do?  Please leave a comment in the box below.
