Spiritual Growth – Deeper into God’s Grace

Spiritual Growth – Deeper into God’s Grace

Here are some observations on the Apostle Paul’s spiritual growth. It was not something flashy or quick; it took a lifetime. And the end result was not something the world thinks was necessarily that great. Paul started to talk less about him and more of Christ. He became more aware of his short comings and his perpetual need of grace. His spiritual growth was not up but down. Deeper into God’s grace. This is spiritual growth, folks I’ve got three different…

The Best Guide in the World

The Best Guide in the World

I love God for many reasons but one of my favorite things is the fact that he guides me. It’s not just talking. You see, it really happens whether we realize it or not. We are not alone in this world. God is with us and he is ready to help us. The best guide in the world wants to connect the dots for us. And Jesus does not just show us the way. He is the way. He guides…

Have You Forgotten How Powerful God Is?

Have You Forgotten How Powerful God Is?

How are you doing? Are you tired of everything? Exhausted or desperate? Guess what, life is not on your shoulders. This is not all there is. You don’t have to manage your life on your own. Help is available. For real. Have you forgotten how powerful God is? Or maybe you don’t really believe that God is active and alive. But he is. And there’s a lot he has to offer for all who believe. Not just when you’re wearing…

Not to Speak Is to Speak

Not to Speak Is to Speak

Since the hate-filled happenings in Charlotte, this Dietrich Bonhoeffer quote has been going through my mind. Over and over again. “Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.” We can’t be silent anymore. Things are escalating rapidly, we need to act. We can’t stay silent any longer. Not to speak is to speak; it’s taking sides with evil. Is that what you want?…

Praying and Praising the Lord (with Psalm 34)

Praying and Praising the Lord (with Psalm 34)

Today I’m interacting with Psalm 34 (MSG). Join me in praying and praising the Lord and blessing his name. There’s nothing better in this world. Nothing better than being a child of God and knowing that God has always been taking care of you and he is helping you right now and he will continue to do it. No exceptions. Always and forever. Join me in praying and praising the Lord I bless God every chance I get; my lungs expand with his…

What Is Your Final Destination?

What Is Your Final Destination?

Do you have a special place on earth that you call your own? I’ve always admired people who are established and happy about it. I’m more a sojourner in spirit. For my kids, I am planning on staying at one place as long as God is not specifically calling us elsewhere. I think, until I get to heaven, I will always be eager to move on. How about you?  But [we are different, because] our citizenship is in heaven. And…

Readiness to Serve

Readiness to Serve

Are you worried that you could mess up God’s plans? Do you think you are letting God down by not being effective and productive enough? I have good news for you. There’s no way you could ever mess up God Almighty’s plans. God knows you and – yet – he loves you very much. He knows how much rest you need and what is happening in your life. You can rest assured you’re not able to wreck God’s plans for…

Christianity as Grace

Christianity as Grace

When you’re exhausted you don’t want to be pushed and told to try even harder. Especially when we are down we need grace. Jesus is calling to him all who are weary. He will not urge us to try harder, instead, he gives us rest. And when we have rested, he will empower us with his grace to do what we can’t do on our own. I see Christianity as grace and that’s why it’s difficult for me to understand…

Pray It Possible

Pray It Possible

Very often we feel that there’s nothing we can do to make things better. We feel helpless and discouraged and don’t know how to go on. The most important thing – and hopefully the first thing – to do is to pray. Really. Because prayer works. Indeed God works in and through our lives. Don’t ever forget that. Whatever dilemma or problem you’re facing, pray it possible. With all prayer and petition pray [with specific requests] at all times [on…
