Spiritual Strength-Training

Spiritual Strength-Training

Why on earth would we need spiritual strength-training? The Merriam-Webster dictionary tells us that few definitions of strength are capacity for exertion or endurance, power to resist force, and power of resisting attack. These are all qualities needed in spiritual life! God is strong, and he wants you strong. So take everything the Master has set out for you, well-made weapons of the best materials. And put them to use so you will be able to stand up to everything the Devil…

Held

Held

It’s Melodic Monday! Today’s song is Held by Natalie Grant. This is a powerful song about loss and heartache and how we are not left alone on those heart-breaking life events. We have not been promised to be spared of hard things in life. But we have been promised to be held. Nathalie Grant’s Held portraits beautifully what it feels like being held by God: Two months is too little. They let him go. They had no sudden healing. To…

It Is Good to Praise the LORD – Psalm 92

Psalm 92 (NIV) A psalm. A song. For the Sabbath day.  1 It is good to praise the LORD        and make music to your name, O Most High,   2 to proclaim your love in the morning        and your faithfulness at night,  3 to the music of the ten-stringed lyre        and the melody of the harp.  4 For you make me glad by your deeds, O LORD;        I sing for joy at the works of your hands….

How to Serve God – Lessons I Learned from John the Baptist

How to Serve God – Lessons I Learned from John the Baptist

The Bible stories of John the Baptist have astonished me ever since I was a child. I’ve come to admire John the Baptist for several reasons. How he was called before he was born, how he did powerful, bold but humble ministry, and how his head was brutally cut and offered on a platter. I’ve always felt that John the Baptist was an example how we should serve God. John was chosen for his ministry before he was born. He…

People of the Presence of the Holy Spirit

People of the Presence of the Holy Spirit

Today my favorite quote is this one by William Blake: “I myself do nothing. The Holy Spirit accomplishes all through me.” That’s what being a Christian means. It’s not about me or my (in)abilities. People of the presence of the Holy Spirit do not need to be afraid of anything. People of the presence of the Holy Spirit does not need to bow to devil’s temptations or believe devil’s accusations of inadequacies or any other lies he wants us to…

Called to Live in Light

Today, I’m honored to be guest blogging at faith-filled and inspiring Soulfari blog authored by Jay Cookingham. Thanks for this opportunity, Jay! Abundant blessings!

Brave

Brave

It’s Melodic Monday! This week’s song is Brave by Nichole Nordeman. This song reminds us how important it is to have reality checks how we are doing with our Christian walk. We need to see if we’re still on the chosen path. It’s so easy to wander off the path without even realizing it. We need to keep on staying close to God, abiding in the Holy Spirit and following closely in Christ’s footsteps. We can’t make it on our…

Blessed Is the Man Who Trust in You – Psalm 84

 (Psalm 84, NIV) 1 How lovely is your dwelling place,        O LORD Almighty!  2 My soul yearns, even faints,        for the courts of the LORD;        my heart and my flesh cry out        for the living God.  3 Even the sparrow has found a home,        and the swallow a nest for herself,        where she may have her young—        a place near your altar,        O LORD Almighty, my King and my God.  4 Blessed…

Doing Your Best Vs. Perfectionism

Doing Your Best Vs. Perfectionism

Sometimes I’ve been accused to be a perfectionist but I have refused to be one. My goal is to always do my best and that’s enough for me even when my best is only mediocre (or even less): It is okay not to be good at everything. I also try to be graceful to myself when do to the circumstances I am below my abilities in something that I am normally good at. When I am good at something I…
