A Continual Conversation with God

A Continual Conversation with God

The funniest thing happened to me during my morning prayer. I got a vision of what a prayer should look like. And, let me tell you, it took me by surprise. It was a vision of a person wearing a bluetooth device having an ongoing dialogue with God. And I understood that our prayer life should be like that. Like a continual conversation with God. God’s there, listening for all who pray,     for all who pray and mean it. (Psalm…

Spiritual Well-Being

Spiritual Well-Being

Do you feel spiritually empty? Are you craving for God’s presence? Congratulations, the Holy Spirit in you is reminding you of the bliss of being in God’s presence. Just open up your heart to receive all that God has for you. The unspiritual self, just as it is by nature, can’t receive the gifts of God’s Spirit. There’s no capacity for them. They seem like so much silliness. Spirit can be known only by spirit—God’s Spirit and our spirits in…

How to Deal with Doubt

How to Deal with Doubt

Do you ever have doubts? How do you deal with them? This is crucial in your life of faith. Because we all have doubts occasionally. We just need to know what to do with them, right? Because of Christ we don’t need to give in. What to do then? The main thing is to give your doubts to Jesus. They don’t surprise him. And he has already conquered them, every single one. Give your doubts to Jesus and watch them…

Make Your Plans Big

Make Your Plans Big

Boldness, fearless confidence, and patient endurance seem to be the top qualities for a disciple of Jesus Christ. I so crave to embody all of them. I love quotes like “If God is your partner, make your plans BIG!” by D.L. Moody. God is big and nothing is impossible for him so we need to be ready to live large for Christ. But are we really doing that? Or are our plans too small after all? there’s no point to…

Peace with Your Weaknesses

Peace with Your Weaknesses

Today I want to talk about weaknesses. We all have them even though we don’t want to admit them. We use too much energy to cover them up. But that’s not wise. We will then miss something beautiful and profound: God’s strength in us. Three different times I begged the Lord to take it away. 9 Each time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” So now I am glad to boast about my…

Celebrate God!

Celebrate God!

Do you remember to celebrate God and salvation in your every day life? Or do you take your faith and God’s blessings granted? Way too often we take the good things in our lives – spouses, friends, family, work, peace, health – granted. That ungratefulness leads us to all kinds of troubles. But how much more trouble can be created if we take God granted? We need to remember God and all he has done for us. We need to…

Faith, Nicodemus and Narnia

Faith, Nicodemus and Narnia

I love bed time stories and the time spent as a family at the end of the day. Currently we are reading through the Narnia books by C.S. Lewis. I can’t really tell who is the most eager to get back into the story each night. I truly admire C.S. Lewis’ skill to write such an adventurous story. Most of all, I am in awe of his ability to weave complex faith-related concepts into the stories with such ease. After…

Choose to Hope and Believe

Choose to Hope and Believe

Life can be demanding. The world can be harsh. Yet I hope you choose to hope and believe no matter what. The last word is God’s. And that word is good for all who choose to hope and believe in Jesus. Hoping against hope, Abraham believed…(Romans 4:18, NRSV) Likewise we are invited to believe even when things look sad, bad or otherwise discouraging. Our hope is not in perishable things. Our hope is not set in philosophies or positive or …

Be of the Same Mind

Be of the Same Mind

Today’s word prompt is ‘same’. Right away I though of God Almighty who is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow. But I realize I’ve already written a thought-provoking post about that. So I had to think another way to approach the word ‘same’. What could it be? Then this Bible verse came into my mind: Be of the same mind toward one another; do not be haughty in mind, but associate with the lowly. Do not be wise in your own…

How to Adjust Your Life to God

How to Adjust Your Life to God

Do you adjust your life to God? Or do you expect God to serve you? Your answers to these questions reveal who is the center of your life. People whose lives are based on selfishness think about selfish things, but people whose lives are based on the Spirit think about things that are related to the Spirit. 6 The attitude that comes from selfishness leads to death, but the attitude that comes from the Spirit leads to life and peace. 7 So…
