Grace Filled Exit

Grace Filled Exit

Are you full of regrets of this year? Are you mad at yourself not doing more, achieving more or enjoying more? Are you looking for a graceful exit? How about a grace filled exit instead? You see, hindsight is always 20/20. It is easy to say what one should have done. It is clear how things should have turned out. But life is not about hindsight. Life is about leaning on God and giving our messes to Jesus.We can’t see…

Work of Christmas Begins

Work of Christmas Begins

“When the song of the angels is stilled, when the star in the sky is gone, when the kings and princes are home, when the shepherds are back with the flocks, then the work of Christmas begins: to find the lost, to heal those broken in spirit, to feed the hungry, to release the oppressed, to rebuild the nations, to bring peace among all peoples, to make a little music with the heart… And to radiate the Light of Christ,…

Stuffed with Joy

Sitting before the Lord

Sitting before the Lord

Are you stressed out and running around like crazy trying to get everything ready? Take a pause. Sit still and be renewed in God’s presence. You never regret time spent in God’s presence. Why is sitting before the Lord so important? When we abide in God, our batteries are charged. And we can forego panic attacks by recognizing God’s powerful presence in the world. Be still, and know that I am God! (Psalm 46:10, NRSV) Why is God calling us…

Grace for Self-Blamers

Grace for Self-Blamers

Do you blame yourself for some things you’ve done? Do you go over and over again some things you’ve unwisely said ? Do you chastise yourself for things you’ve left undone? Don’t worry. There’s plenty of grace for self-blamers! “Deliberately punishing ourselves with blame and shame, instead of turning toward the epic grace of God, never produces anything good”, writes Kurt Bubna in his book Epic Grace, Chronicles of a Recovering Idiot. Kurt continues “Don’t listen to the accusing voice…

Walking in Love

Walking in Love

We are called to be one in Christ…but we are not succeeding very well, are we? Living in unity seems like a balancing act sometimes. How can we who are so different live in harmony? How can we respect everyone and allow each other freedom in Christ? These are the questions I’ve been mulling over lately. Blessedly I learned five things about walking in love from Romans 14:13-23. 1) We need to stop criticizing at once. Everyone we meet is…

Not a Game, But a Battle

Not a Game, But a Battle

Life is not a game. But it is a battle. How come? Life is not about smelling roses or walking into sunsets. Neither it is about playing hard or finding your rightful place in the world. Life is not just about growing older and doing something meaningful before dying. Because the physical world is not all there is. We can’t forget about the spiritual realm. And that’s why life is not a picnic or a game. It is a battle….

Are You on the Way?

Are You on the Way?

Are you on the way to meet Jesus? Like the wise men? Without waiting for 100% proof? The wise men must have been on the road to pay homage to the new born king for quite some time now.  They most likely had known about the prophecy of Daniel and were familiar with the astronomy. But they were on the way to meet Jesus by faith. They did not wait for 100% proof before starting their journey to Jesus. It…
