Hi, friends! You may have noticed the new theme and the new title of my blog: Tizzie’s Tidbits of Truth. I thought this title better explained the goal of my blog: to share my thoughts about the incredible Truth of God’s Word. You can read all about that truth here!
In honor of these new changes, I’m writing a new kind of post–a simple little post about five amazing resources I’ve recently found.
These “Favorite Finds” are Christian songs, articles, and even a movie that I’ve found thought-provoking, helpful, and inspiring.
Find #1: Same Kind of Different as Me
This was a very powerful and well-made Christian film by PureFlix. Though this movie’s focus is not the gospel, it weaves the gospel into the storyline. In short, a woman and her husband are struggling in their marriage. When the woman starts volunteering at a homeless shelter, her husband reluctantly decides to join her. The woman encounters a homeless man who she’d recently encountered in her dreams and decides to help him, no matter the cost.
This article really encouraged me, and I know it will encourage you, too! It reminded me that because I’m imperfect, my quiet times will also be imperfect. Our faithfulness is what really matters, not the specific ways we spend time with God.
Find #3: Ten Ways to Revive a Deadened Heart
I don’t know about you, but sometimes my heart feels almost dead inside of me. I wonder why I feel like an apathetic wanderer through the wilderness. In this slideshow, Jennifer Slattery offers ten helpful suggestions for reviving our restless and weary hearts.
Find #4: “I Wanna Go Back” by David Dunn.
You must must must listen to this single by David Dunn. It perfectly describes the life of a believer who has grown up in the church and misses the “good old days” of having childlike faith and trust. Many of us, including me, can relate to this song’s message.
Find #5: “Clear the Stage” by Jimmy Needham.
Wow. Needham certainly doesn’t beat around the bush with this song. He cuts right to the heart, piercing our thoughts and intentions as believers. I highly recommend listening to this powerful song and adding it to your playlist.
I hope you can use these resources in your own life and share them with others. Happy watching, reading, and listening! 🙂
Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. (Philippians 4:8 ESV)
