Ready for a Risk of Faith?

Ready for a Risk of Faith?

What would it take for you to take a risk of faith? What would it take to get you out of your comfort zone and into an adventure of faith? These are the questions that have been running through my head as I’ve been reading the fourth diary in Mary DeMuth‘s and Frank Viola‘s brand new book The Day I Met Jesus: The reavealing diaries of five women in the gospels. The fourth diary is of a woman with a…

Healing Words for a Broken Heart

Healing Words for a Broken Heart

Do you feel like you heart is breaking? I am sorry to hear that. No matter what has caused your broken heart, help is near. You are not alone. The Lord is close to the brokenhearted     and saves those who are crushed in spirit. (Psalm 34: 18, NIV,*) I can testify for this. Nothing will separate you from God. Nothing at all. Can anything ever separate us from Christ’s love? Does it mean he no longer loves us if we have…

Guard Against Trifling

Guard Against Trifling

As we approach the Holy Week, it is time to do some self examination. Are we disobedient, slow to repent, full of doubt? Even just on a small scale? He who is faithful in a very little [thing] is faithful also in much, and he who is dishonest and unjust in a very little [thing] is dishonest and unjust also in much. Therefore if you have not been faithful in the [case of] unrighteous mammon (deceitful riches, money, possessions), who will…

The Effect of the Living Water

The Effect of the Living Water

On Mondays I’m blogging through Mary DeMuth‘s and Frank Viola‘s brand new book The Day I Met Jesus: The reavealing diaries of five women in the gospels. The woman of the third diary is found in John 4:1-42. It’s the story of the Samaritan woman meeting Jesus at the well. This encounter at the well is the longest personal conversation reported in the gospels. It gives us all hope.Frank Viola points out “Consider this, dear reader. If your Lord could…

Knowing God On a First Name Basis

Knowing God On a First Name Basis

Do you know the real Self of our heavenly father? Because of Jesus, you are free to get to know God personally. Don’t miss this opportunity. Pray all your excuses to disappear. Pray that you will have an urge to spend more time with God. There’s nothing quite like it than be on a first name basis with God Almighty! With the words of J.I. Packer “What makes life worthwhile is having a big enough objective, something which catches our…

We Will Not Lack

We Will Not Lack

God is so good. God’s Word is so good. Any time I open it, I am in awe of God’s loving kindness. I am not surprised God is taking care of me. That’s his promise for all of us. I am now days expecting it and looking forward to it. But I am always surprised how he does it. How simply, how effortlessly, how gently he does it. How easily he refreshes me. I am always blown away, always in…

Leaving Self-Righteousness (at the Foot of the Cross)

Leaving Self-Righteousness (at the Foot of the Cross)

Last week I started blogging through Mary DeMuth‘s and Frank Viola‘s brand new book The Day I Met Jesus: The reavealing diaries of five women in the gospels. The woman of the second diary is found in Luke 7:36-50. I’ve always been in awe of the woman who wet the feet of Jesus with her tears and wiped them with her hair and soothed his feet with perfume. Would I dare? Do I love Jesus as much as she did?…

Practicing the Presence of God

Practicing the Presence of God

Do you spend time with God regularly? Do you live out your faith or is it something you reserve for Sundays only? And, most importantly, do you practice the absence of God or the presence of God? Too often Christians are so busy running their lives that they forget God. They forget that God exists and wants to be part of their lives. Even if they say they are Christians, they practice the absence of God. They forget what it…

How to Have Peace of Mind

How to Have Peace of Mind

Do you desire to have peace of mind? I think we all do. When we have peace of mind, we are happy. It is that wonderful feeling when you know all is well and all is going to be all right. But how to have it in the midst of every day chaos? How to have it as the world gets tougher day by day? How to have peace of mind when it seems all we have is the opposite?…
