Some Revealing Questions to Ask Yourself
By Dan Langerock

Have you ever noticed that questions hang around until they are answered? All through history this has been the case until the question was addressed and answered. The idea began like this “I wonder if the world is really flat?” Then the thinking and investigating eventually revealed that it was not flat after all. This concept can be applied to any and all of the inventions and reversals of common thought through the ages.

You can apply questions to your personal life as well to crystallize and focus your attention for your benefit. Let’s take the idea of resources for example. Just as countries have resources they use for their populace, so do we as individuals. A country develops its resources through trade and other means. Each person comes with a set of gifts and abilities, which they can use or ignore. How have you used the gifts and abilities in your resource list? Have you developed them or shunted them aside for one reason or another?









I grew up with epilepsy and blindness and was told “You can’t do that” because of my condition. For many years I believed this and had a pity party on a grand scale. Slowly, I have been debunking this myth in my life by trying new things, and seeing how far I can go. For instance, when I was in high school and even in college, I would have seizures whenever I got to a certain point in algebra, so I couldn’t take the class as a result. Now I am in college taking algebra, working toward a degree in psychology. The Bible says, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me”. This is what He has done in my life. I am slated to take Intermediate Algebra, Finite Math, Chemistry, Biology, and Statistics before I leave this college. On my own I cannot even begin to do these courses without consequences, but with God helping me every step of the way, I can and I will.

The same is true in your life. You may be going through relationship problems, a recent stroke or other illness, grieving the loss of a loved one. At the moment, it doesn’t feel like you can take another step, but you can with God’s help. The result may not happen as fast as you wanted, but it will happen if you keep trying different ways to accomplish what is set before you. It took me over 30 years to conquer algebra and epilepsy, but with God’s help I did, just as you can conquer what is happening in your life. There is more than one way to address a problem, so think creatively and ask God for the wisdom to accomplish them.




Don’t let what others say derail you, keep on trying and praying, praying and trying. No, it will not be easy, but you don’t have to do it alone. God promises to never leave or forsake us when we trust in Him and commit our lives to Him. Look at your attitude about what is happening in your life, and make corrections there, then set your course and do whatever it takes to make that dream happen. It did for me with algebra and epilepsy, and it will for you as well when your priorities are put in the right order both for this life and the one to come. God be with you!


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
