Adjusting to the New Normal

Adjusting to the New Normal

We all have a new normal now due to the threat of Covid-19. How are you adjusting? For some of us it is easy, but some might struggle quite a bit. What could we do to ease anxiety as we are adjusting to the new normal? The first thing is to remember even if the world and life is changing fast, God is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow. And we can count on him in everything. Jesus Christ is…

Surrendering to God Brings Blessings

Surrendering to God Brings Blessings

Do you think the talk about God is good as long as it does not demand you to alter your way of living? That’s how we think of most of things, right? All is good until it tries to limit our life. We think any restrictions will spoil everything we have. But new and different do not – most often – equal bad or spoiled. Especially when it comes to surrendering to God and obeying his will. It’s the best…

Trust and Rest in God

Trust and Rest in God

It’s interesting how frustrating it can be to not be able to plan far in the future, isn’t it? We barely know what will happen tomorrow and nobody knows how our life or the world will look like in two months. Maybe we needed a reminder of our vulnerability. We truly aren’t in control. Anyhow, we do not need to worry. Because we know intimately the One who is in control and who knows what will happen tomorrow and in…

Let’s Turn to Jesus

Let’s Turn to Jesus

As the Coronavirus spreads, we are forced to pause. It can feel strange to suddenly have so much time on your hands. Instead of panicking or numbing the hollowness you feel inside, let’s turn to Jesus. He is the only one who can fill the empty hole inside of you. With the words of Blaise Pascal “There is a God-shaped vacuum in the heart of every man which cannot be filled by any created thing, but only by God, the…

Fretting Less by Trusting God More

Fretting Less by Trusting God More

As the Coronavirus is spreading like crazy, many are getting anxious. I think it is wise to wash your hands and do everything you can to prevent the disease as much as possible. But our life or death are not in our own hands. Hence it’s time to start fretting less by trusting God more. Let the peace of Christ [the inner calm of one who walks daily with Him] be the controlling factor in your hearts [deciding and settling…

Following Jesus All Day Long

Following Jesus All Day Long

We are called to follow Jesus but how does it look like in everyday life? What does it mean to follow Jesus and how could we do it in the midst of everything? Following Jesus all day long is our goal but how to do it, right? Let’s see what we can come up with. And He was saying to them all, “If anyone wishes to follow Me [as My disciple], he must deny himself [set aside selfish interests], and take up his cross daily [expressing…

Jesus Brings Everything

Jesus Brings Everything

Today I was thinking about God’s goodness. How God has chosen us in Christ even before he made the world. He prepared salvation for us through Jesus so we could be united with him. Amazing. The fact is, we bring nothing to the table except our sin and need to be rescued. Jesus brings everything, all the spiritual blessings, all the good things and then some. Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed…

God’s Protection

God’s Protection

As the Coronavirus spreads fear around the world, it’s time to remind ourselves of a few facts. No, I’m not telling you to wash your hands and such. I’m urging you to reminds yourself of some spiritual facts about God’s protection and reasons to be fearless in this seemingly fearful season. Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High    will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.2 I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress,    my God, in whom I trust.”3Surely…

God Enables Our Faith

God Enables Our Faith

Before we can work out our faith, God needs to work salvation in us. It’s always God first, then we are able to respond. God enables our faith. We are not even authors of our faith. God is. He is the miracle worker, not us. We can’t make ourselves worthy of God’s love or grace. But God can and he is continually at it. Let’s let God work in us freely. Then we can work out our faith for his…

Lenten Fasting

Lenten Fasting

How do you feel about fasting during the Lenten season? I’ve always been interested in fasting and have tried many different kinds of fasts. Last year I fasted from fasting and even that was a good thing. Fasting itself is not the end goal and fasting won’t get you into heaven. Instead, the purpose of fasting is to ready you to the Easter joy. If our lives are very cacophonic and chaotic, the holiness and awesomeness of Easter might elude…
