Persevere in Faith

Persevere in Faith

Hearing God’s voice or experiencing his presence is beyond wonderful. But there are times in all of our lives when God is silent and feels distant. It’s not fun but it does not mean that God would not love us anymore. We need to know that the promises of the Bible are valid each of us every day. Not just on those days when we can feel it but also – especially – when we feel desperate and alone. That’s…

The Best Bargain of All

The Best Bargain of All

Sometimes we overlook things that we are familiar with. We are more excited about things that seem to be exotic. Like Christianity might feel boring to you if you’ve grown up with it. You look into mindfulness to look for peace and you forget that the prince of peace is Jesus himself. You forget that he gave his all that we could have all. That’s the best bargain of all. You are familiar with the generosity of our Master, Jesus Christ. Rich…

Thanksgiving Prayers

Thanksgiving Prayers

Thanksgiving is not something we do once a year, it’s a way of life for Christians. Every breath we take is a gift from God. Hence, thanksgiving prayers are a natural part of communicating with God. Our prayers don’t need to be eloquent but sometimes we are looking for some depth or inspiration and then the prayers uttered by saints gone before us can do the trick. Here I have my favorite thanksgiving prayers for you to enjoy and share….

Leave Excuses Behind

Leave Excuses Behind

Wednesday night I was teaching a class about how faith can help us in tough times. While I was teaching I realized how much we really miss out if we keep on making excuses for why we are not getting to know God better. God can be everything we ever need and more. Yet, we prefer to struggle on our own. Why is that? It’s our loss for sure. But, also, living that way does not prepare us to heaven…

Death as the Doorway to Eternity

Death as the Doorway to Eternity

Life is complicated, isn’t it? When you feel you’re getting hang of it, something happens and everything changes and you’re once again trying to cope. You don’t know how long you will live either. Life sure is unpredictable. When you’re young, life seems endless but the older you get, the shorter life seems to become. What to do then? How do you handle aging? Is death something that will take away all your fun or could it be something more…

Let God Do the Talking

Let God Do the Talking

I realized it’s been years since I’ve written anything on silence or solitude in my blog. How about you? Are you a fan of silence? Is silence something we are not too eager to be reminded of? We even might read about it but implementing it into our lives is not on our top priority list. Yet it should. It does bring blessings to our lives because in silence we meet our God. Silence is also the key to spiritual growth….

Dare to Be Great for God

Dare to Be Great for God

Isn’t it interesting how we can talk ourselves down from trying to achieve great things for God? How is it possible that we settle for less than God’s plan for us? It’s especially crazy if we think we’re doing God’s will by laying low. Folks, we have work to do. Let’s not believe what our enemy is whispering. God is calling our names, we have things to do and places to go. Be all you were created to be. Dare to…

Bring Your Needs to God

Bring Your Needs to God

What’s your need today? How are you going to go about it? What’s your plan to fill your need? Your answers will reveal a lot about you. Too often we try to be independent until we can’t do it. For some of us, it’s easier to ask for help than others. But even the best human efforts will not help you in all of your needs. You need God, only he can fill all your needs. So bring your needs…
