Thoughts on Waiting

Thoughts on Waiting

Today I’ve been inspired by some thoughts on waiting and I want to share them with you. May they encourage you on your faith journey as well! We who have hope in Christ are able to wait because we know God is good all the time. For in [this] hope we were saved. But hope [the object of] which is seen is not hope. For how can one hope for what he already sees? But if we hope for what is…

Ultimate Love

Ultimate Love

Fully grasping the depth of God’s love is most likely out of our reach. I think God’s love is so endless that we just don’t have the capacity to fully know it. Or, at least, it is a life-long process. Everything in God’s time. But even just getting a small glimpse of God’s love leaves us awestruck. God so loved the world, each and everyone of us, that he gave his only son that no one would perish. Jesus paid…

Jesus is the Key

Jesus is the Key

This is just a short – and hopefully sweet – reminder to not forget Jesus. Because Jesus is the key to all the locks. Jesus is the answer to all the questions. Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life. According to Jesus “No one comes to the Father except through me” (John 14:6, CEB). That’s why I have to ask: How long has it been that you’ve confessed that Jesus is the Son of God?  For every child…

Listen to God

Listen to God

It feels awful when you are not heard. It undermines your core being and it does not feel good. At all. But even though other people don’t value us or listen to us we have someone who always does. And that is Jesus. If he is our rock, no one can erode our foundation. Sometimes we complain that even God does not hear us. But he always does even when we feel that he doesn’t hear us. We are always…

Joy-Warriors

Joy-Warriors

Are you a joy-warrior? Would you like to be? I hope so. That’s who we are called to be here on earth. We are called to love God above all else and others like ourselves. It’s not as easy as it sounds but the benefits are out of this world. Be joyful. Grow to maturity. Encourage each other. Live in harmony and peace. Then the God of love and peace will be with you. (2 Cor.13:11, MSG) A joy-warrior is…

Amazing (G)Race?

Amazing (G)Race?

Is receiving the grace of Christ an amazing race or amazing grace? It is a relief to know it does not require to be the winner of the amazing race to receive the grace of Christ. There is nothing we can do to earn the grace of Christ. It is the amazing gift from God; it is amazing grace. But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when…

Dressed in Readiness

Dressed in Readiness

Do you know how to be dressed in readiness? Then I want to hear from you. My word for the year 2015 is ‘readiness’ and I am trying to figure out what readiness means for me and how I could practice it more fully. Be dressed in readiness, and keep your lamps lit. (Luke 12:35, NASB,*) We are all called to be ready for Jesus. But readiness for Jesus means more than ‘just’ being saved. And that’s what I will be…

Looking for Happiness

Looking for Happiness

Are you looking for happiness? Most people are. My heart cries out for all the people who are looking for happiness in all the wrong places. How people are so lost and don’t have any idea where to find what they’ve been looking for all their lives. This is nothing new under the sun though. When you read through the Bible you realize people were acting exactly the same way thousands of years ago than they do now. People are…

Where Righteousness Is at Home

Where Righteousness Is at Home

The world news are very upsetting, don’t you agree? Every week we read about some horrific news. It makes us homesick to God. We long for a place where righteousness is at home, where we can all be at peace. Blessedly, heaven is such a place and we are all invited. Even the price has already been paid by Jesus. Hence anyone who believes in Jesus is more than welcome there. Since everything here today might well be gone tomorrow,…
