God Collects Special Things

God Collects Special Things

Do you collect something? I collect angels and cobalt blue glass. Usually we collect something that is precious to us. I love angels and feel that cobalt blue is the colour of my soul. Do you know that God collects some things too? They must be something really precious, right? You keep track of all my sorrows.     You have collected all my tears in your bottle.     You have recorded each one in your book. My enemies will retreat when I call…

Trust God Completely

Trust God Completely

It takes time to learn to trust God completely. The more we dare to trust, the more trustworthy we find God. Little by little we learn that God will never let us down no matter how difficult our situation is. Learning to trust God completely is a process for sure. But so worth it. Take Jacob, for example. When he had to run away from Esau, God met him in the middle of nowhere and blessed him with an encouraging…

Encouraging Words

Encouraging Words

It’s not a secret that I love reading the Bible. There are many reasons of course. One of them is the surprise factor. You see, the Bible is the Living Word of God and when we read it prayerfully, the Holy Spirit surprises us time after time. The boring parts becomes precious, old things get new meanings and historical things becomes personal. Encouraging words for sure. Try it yourself. Keep at it regularly. And your life is not the same…

Pride – the Anti-God State of Mind

Pride – the Anti-God State of Mind

Do you know that the enemy uses pride to lure us away from the Lord? It is hard to die for yourself and live only to the Lord. But that’s the calling of every Christian. But we don’t like it. And that’s when the enemy steps in. He tries to make us believe that pride is not really a sin. That we actually deserve some praise and acknowledgement. Slowly the anti-God state of mind starts to grow in us. A…

Invitation to Listen

Invitation to Listen

How do you communicate with God? Most often people say “through prayer”. And that’s great. Just don’t forget prayer is a two-way conversation.

God’s invitation to listen is real. God’s invitation to listen is for you Yes, you’re invited. God wants to interact with you. Not just once…

Discipleship and Obedience

Discipleship and Obedience

How are your discipleship routines? Are you diligent in obeying God? Are you reading your Bible even when you don’t feel like it? You answers tell a lot about your thoughts about how a Christian should live his/her life. Let’s see what others have said about discipleship and obedience. Eugene Peterson states “A disciple is a life-long learner: not an academic acquiring information about God, but a craftsman acquiring skills in the faith.” I do agree. Being a disciple is…

Dress up in Hope, Faith and Love

Dress up in Hope, Faith and Love

Are you on your way to heaven? Do you know how we are supposed to spend our time waiting for the second coming of Jesus? How should we live our lives here on earth? How about dressing up in hope, faith and love? I don’t think, friends, that I need to deal with the question of when all this is going to happen. You know as well as I that the day of the Master’s coming can’t be posted on…

The Ultimate Healer

The Ultimate Healer

Have you been hurt badly? Or is sorrow your constant companion? Is your heart so broken that you doubt if it can ever be whole again? I hear you. I’ve been there, done that. But I have good words for you. And they are not “time heals. “Ann Voskamp has said “Time never heals wounds like God does.” God is the ultimate healer. He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds [curing their pains and their sorrows]. (Psalm 147:3, AMP,*) I…
