Do Not Quit Praying

Do Not Quit Praying

The world seems to be going crazy. Hence there is a lot of fear floating around. The best antidote I know is prayer. For real. I truly believe in the power of prayer because it works. In this post you can find some quotes to boost your moral in this crazy world. Whatever you do, do not quit praying. Because it invites God in our midst and miracles will follow. As Woodrow Kroll puts it “fervent prayers produce phenomenal results”….

Releasing Control to God

Releasing Control to God

This world seems to think being in control is the best thing ever or, at least, something everyone should strive to have. But I dare to disagree. Being in control is not my goal, releasing control to God is. Some of you now think I am a lunatic. I understand. If you have not found God to be a loving and caring parent, you most likely don’t want to have anything to do with him. Then also releasing control to…

God Forgives and Forgets

God Forgives and Forgets

Do you have hard time believing that God does not remember the things he has forgiven you? I hear you. I’ve written a lot about our need of forgiveness, the importance of forgiveness, even what living forgiveness means. I’ve done it because I believe forgiveness is one of the most life-changing things because it brings freedom. It leads us from brokenness to wholeness. But this does not happen if we don’t truly believe forgiven means forgiven and that God forgives…

Give God Your All

Give God Your All

  It’s true that you should give God your best. You should not reserve the best for yourself but give it to God. The Bible does not urge you to give the leftovers to God for sure. Quite the opposite in fact. You are to love God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength (Mark 12:30, NIV). That means you are not to give God just the best…

God’s Plan to Redeem, Restore, and Refine Us

God’s Plan to Redeem, Restore, and Refine Us

Have you tried to please God and failed miserably? Join the club. We can’t please God by self-improvement and we can’t be good on our own. Blessedly, that is not the end. We are not saved by works but by God’s grace. God’s plan to redeem, restore, and refine us is rock-solid. We know very well that we are not set right with God by rule-keeping but only through personal faith in Jesus Christ. How do we know? We tried…

God Is Awesome

God Is Awesome

Do you think God is awesome? Good for you. You’ve found the beginning of wisdom. Sadly, the world these days does not think that God has anything to do with wisdom. But they don’t know anything about real life. They don’t know how awesome God is and where the blessings really come from. For whoever finds me (Wisdom) finds life And obtains favor and grace from theLord. (Proverbs 8:35, AMP) God is awesome God is not awesome just because the…

Pay Attention

Pay Attention

Twice a week I go to a gym class where there are 25 different stations that we rotate. It takes only an hour to get a great work out for different muscle groups. Also, it’s much more fun in a group setting. Today the person I was following made a mistake and skipped a station. I wasn’t paying attention, I just followed her and made the same mistake. And the one after me did the same. That got me thinking….

The Beauty of Christianity

The Beauty of Christianity

Do you know the beauty of Christianity? Because of Jesus no middleman is needed to approach God. Jesus paved the way for all of us. He came to die for our sins and make us right with God. Since then all who believe in Jesus have a direct access to God. Amazing! Astonishing! Absolutely marvellous, isn’t it? Why then don’t you use this privilege more? But when the time arrived that was set by God the Father, God sent his Son,…

The Resolution Psalm

The Resolution Psalm

People have shared great New Year resolutions with me. But none of them are like this psalm I read the other day. How can one psalm capture the heart of Christian living so well? The college professor part of me smiles when I saw the number: 101. The resolution psalm really teaches us the most basic stuff about how to conduct our lives the Jesus way, don’t you think? The Resolution Psalm I will sing of your love and justice,…

You Are Fashioned for Faith

You Are Fashioned for Faith

Did you know that you are fashioned for faith and not for fear? Sometimes we tend to think faith takes more out of you that worry or misery. Other times you hear people saying it’s not natural to have faith. How come? God created us to interact with him. His people are fashioned for faith, not for fear. That’s why I was thrilled to find this quote by E. Stanley Jones. It reflects beautifully the purposes of God. You are…
