And then I started thinking, Well, somebody might have been cleaning up and thought they were doing something good. You see, I practiced something else the Bible tells us to do: to think the best of people. That also requires faith. Faith is something that must be released. You can possess faith, but you must put it to use. A muscle that is not used gets weak and shrivels up. If you don't use your faith, then it's no different than not having any.
When you sit down in a chair, you have faith that it's not going to collapse. You don't start sweating and trembling with fear saying, "Oh, I'm afraid to sit in this chair. I don't know if I should be doing this! But what about when you have a problem? Do you go plop down in the arms of Jesus and say, "I'm asking You to take care of this and I believe You will.
Do you release your faith through prayer, line up what you speak with God's promises, and do whatever He asks you to do without trying to figure things out?
Now that's the way to release your faith! Give your circumstance over to Jesus and be confident that He's got it all under control. Your life will change dramatically once you unleash your faith. Don't just have it in your heart—let it out, put it to the test and be amazed at what God does through your life! Studying the Bible can seem like an intimidating endeavor. There is a price for progress, but with God's guidance and a little determination, the benefits will far outweigh the cost. At any time you can unsubscribe and remove your consent.

God has gifted His entire Body with faith, spiritual gifts, talents, and abilities. This principle applies to the church, to the workplace, to school, and to every other sphere of life. Yes, we should respect our own gifts, talents, and callings from God, but we should also respect the fact that it takes all of us to get a job done!
So learn to recognize and respect your limitations — and learn to embrace others who are just as needed as you are! Lord, help me recognize and respect my gifts and limitations. Help me specialize in those areas where I feel confident that I will be a blessing.
Teach me to embrace and appreciate those who are more gifted than I am in other areas. I confess that I think soberly about myself and about my gifts and abilities. I thank God for the gifts and talents He has placed in my life, but I also recognize and respect my limitations. Terrazas which is the most important case on U. The following case seems somewhat more in line with the current State Department policy that loss of US citizenship occurs only when a person truly intends to give it up. Marc Rich, defendant in a multi-million-dollar business lawsuit, contended that the Federal District Court which had heard his case lacked jurisdiction because he Rich had given up his US citizenship in when he became a naturalized citizen of Spain.
The Spanish naturalization oath he took included an explicit renunciation of US citizenship. Rich continued to use his American passport despite renunciation of American citizenship. So, this case turns on its facts — do not behave as a U. Behave in the opposite way. Blaze: More alike than you think. My wife and I also have SSNs which we had before we left the States but we never used them nor applied for any benefits.

I would love to find a knowledgeable lawyer who could help me to resolve this without actually having to go to court. John, you and your wife are brave to actually be going to US Consulate. Blaze: My wife and I parallel your story except we contacted no one when we went to our citizenship ceremony.
That was in November of We did not have to sign a renunciation as far as I can remember but I have sent a FOI request to the Canadian government for all documents from that time. We did file our final U. I came to France in and was married in early At that time I was offered French citizenship rules are different now and I did check with the US consulate where I was informed in very strong terms that I would put my US citizenship at risk if I did this.
Looks like if I had gone to the Consulate a little less than one year later, I would have had a different answer and would probably be a French citizen today. The Canadian Citizenship Judge told me a U. It was in that meeting that I was presented with the document.

The U. I confirmed I did and he presented me with the document to sign. It was all done in a matter of minutes and I proceeded to another room for the citizenship ceremony. I wish I had asked for a copy of the document. It all seemed so straighforward. I have also taken an Oath to the Queen on two separate occassions when I began employment with the Ontario government. I never filed a U.
