Time for Rest and Renewal

Time for Rest and Renewal

It’s time for rest and renewal, don’t you think? I’m ready for it anyway. It has been an emotional roller coaster month for my family and as I seek a new direction I feel I am truly in need of rest and renewal. That’s why I felt truly blessed when a friend of mine shared a Bible passage that had touched her heart. “‘For this is what the Sovereign Lord says: I myself will search for my sheep and look after them.  As a…

Grace Needs to Be Grace

Grace Needs to Be Grace

Salvation by grace is a phenomenal thing. It changes us if we just want to receive it. But why is it, really, that we so would like to add something to it? It’s hard to think something so great could really be freely given. But if it were not freely given, grace would not be grace anymore. And grace needs to be grace, otherwise, we’re doomed. But if it is by grace, it is no longer on the basis of…

Worthy of God’s Love

Worthy of God’s Love

Because you’re worth it, says a cosmetic company to urge you to buy their products. It is a clever advertisement as it targets our longing to be worthy somehow. I hate to break it to you but there’s no such a product that could ever make you feel worthy. But I do know someone who can do it. Jesus thinks you’re to die for. You’re worthy of God’s love. There isn’t higher praise than that. But because of his great…

Process Your Life with God

Process Your Life with God

I often talk about life with God because living with God gives your life colors. Often I have struggled to convey to you how to do it in real life and then God provided a perfect teachable moment last week. My family was deeply disappointed with the canceled year in Africa as I wrote in my previous blog post. This experience allowed me to re-experience what it is to process your life with God. When your life is turned upside…

When Dreams Come Crashing Down.

When Dreams Come Crashing Down.

Some of you may have known that for the past year our family has prepared for a year in Ethiopia. I was called to teach at a theological seminary there. Then the pandemic happened and our year was first postponed and then canceled altogether due to financial difficulties of the Mission organization. Perhaps needless to say, our family was shocked. All our dreams for a year in Africa came crashing down. How did we take it? And how do you…

A Deeper Connection with God

A Deeper Connection with God

Lately, I’ve been reading about Moses. He was an imperfect man (like we all are) yet what a life and what a journey he had. And what a faith! I would like to have that kind of connection with God, you know. That’s why I am continually hoping and praying for a deeper connection with God. Do you know it is possible for each of us because Jesus cleared the way back to God? Today I read (Exodus 4) about…

How to Stay the Course

How to Stay the Course

When things get tough, we are tempted to quit. But as it’s the darkest moment right before the dawn, the best things come for those who stay the course anyhow. Okay, you say. You want to do so but how on earth are you able to do so? That is the question, isn’t it? Let’s find out. The best thing to do is to stay in God’s presence. If you run, you lose. But if you stay, you win. So…

Live Your Life by Faith

Live Your Life by Faith

I love knowing God knew me before I was born. He knows me thoroughly because he made me. None of us is alive by accident. We are alive because God called us into being. Just think about it! You are God’s beloved child and your life has a meaning – and purpose. So lift your head high and rejoice. Live your life by faith. Now faith is the assurance (title deed, confirmation) of things hoped for (divinely guaranteed), and the…
