You Just need to Ask

You Just need to Ask

Do you feel stuck? Sometimes we feel like we’d be doing the same old, same old routines over and over. Nothing changes no matter how we try. Like we’d be forgotten in the middle of nowhere. But that’s not true. God knows exactly where you are and what is going on in your life. He is ready to help you. You just need to ask. Don’t let fear keep you stuck. Let God’s grace set you free. You see, I…

Discipleship Is an Invitation for More

Discipleship Is an Invitation for More

Discipleship doesn’t make us giddy, does it? Rather it is something we see as boring or tiresome, something we are not too keen on doing. It reminds us of kitchen privilege or chores we’d rather not be doing. But discipleship is not a chore, it’s an invitation to get to know our Maker better. Discipleship is an invitation for more. It’s a start of the lifelong process of becoming like Jesus. How come it’s not a chore then, making yourself…

Faith Is Receiving

Faith Is Receiving

How amazing it is that faith is receiving. And not trying, trying, and trying. Faith is always and forevermore receiving. It is always God first. Again and again, God pouring out blessings upon blessings on us. Faith is receiving God’s gifts: his love, his grace, his peace, his joy. Once we’ve filled to the brim with God’s grace, only then it is our turn to reciprocate and love God and others. But it is always God first. We love, because He…

Loving Jesus More than Anything

Loving Jesus More than Anything

I love Jesus. How could I not, right? He died for me and gave me a chance to be made right with God. Loving Jesus is a no-brainer to me. How about you? It gets tough when we are told in the Bible to love God and Jesus above all. More than ourselves. Even more than our kids. And even more than life itself. Ouch. Loving Jesus more than anything does not come naturally to us. Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord…

Why Friday the 13th Has Nothing on Christians

Why Friday the 13th Has Nothing on Christians

I find it interesting that even some Christians live in fear of Friday the 13th and other superstitions. Like Christ’s victory over death and evil would not mean anything. Yes, I know there are evil forces in the world. But our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ has won the battle already. We are on the victor’s side. Also on Friday the 13th. So what are we going to say about these things? If God is for us, who is against…

Listening to God Obediently

Listening to God Obediently

I was taken by two quotes today. They talk about two different things – prayer and obedience- yet they seem to talk about the same thing: listening to God. That seems to be the ultimate thing for all who want to know and be known by God. How are prayer and obedience linked to that? Let’s find out. Jesus himself talked about obedience meaning love for God. Clearly, that is a good place to start our exploration. The person who…

How to Release Our Faith

How to Release Our Faith

Do you struggle with stress? Or worry? Aren’t we crazy? God has promised to take care of us. Yet, we worry or stress out things. We have faith. Yet, somehow we don’t know how to release our faith. We don’t know how to be stress-free children of God. This is something I am currently learning and it seems to be an ongoing process. But I share with you what I’ve learned so far. Jesus replied, “Have faith in God [constantly] (Mark. 11:22, AMP)….

What Happens After Easter

What Happens After Easter

I don’t use any Bible reading plans. My plan is simply to read a chapter or two or three both in the Old and New Testaments every day (and, no, I don’t manage to do it every day). Once I’ve read through, I start rereading them again, usually in a different translation. So I was utterly delighted by the divine orchestrating that on Easter Monday I was reading through the last chapters of the letter to the Hebrews. It so beautifully…
