Fill Your Emptiness with Jesus

Fill Your Emptiness with Jesus

Today I want to talk about a Bible passage that doesn’t give warm fuzzies to most of us. It might even shake us to the core so we’re glad to move on thinking it does not speak about us. But it does and that’s why I want to talk about the passage today. It’s not enough we’re cleansed from all unrighteousness, we also need to be filled with God’s love. So fill your emptiness with Jesus and your life will…

That’s God’s Love for You

That’s God’s Love for You

Do you believe God loves you no matter what you do or leave undone? Good for you. Do you believe this also in dark times? You see, it’s easy to believe God is good and he loves you when things are going well for you. But when tough times arrive, do you still think you’re the apple of God’s eye? Because that’s God’s love for you. With the words of Henri Nouwen “Many people don’t think they are loved, or…

When Grace Reigns in You

When Grace Reigns in You

Does grace reign in you? This is an important question for every believer. If grace doesn’t reign in you, either sin or self-righteousness rules you. Neither brings life or freedom. Only grace does. Abundantly. When grace reigns in you, all is well. So just as sin ruled over all people and brought them to death, now God’s wonderful grace rules instead, giving us right standing with God and resulting in eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. (Romans 5:21, NLT,*)…

Faith and Control Do Not Mix Well Together

Faith and Control Do Not Mix Well Together

Today I have four quotes and three Bible verses about faith and control to share with you. We all would like to have everything together, be in control so we could relax and enjoy our lives, right? But that’s not how faith or life works. Faith and control don’t mix well together. How come? If our goal is to be in control, we push faith away. The one who is in control is the god in our life whether we…

How to Live in Thankfulness

How to Live in Thankfulness

Isn’t it interesting – and frustrating – there are things we need to relearn again and again? How do we forget the good things so quickly? Why do we lose our way so fast? We just had our summer vacation and we’re already stressed out. It’s time to relearn to live in thankfulness. One of the most essential things in Christian living is to live in thankfulness. It might seem too simplistic or too obvious and we might think we…

God Sees in the darkness

God Sees in the darkness

Usually, summer is a season of light and laughter. This year summer has been different and the clouds on the horizon are not white or fluffy either. Dark clouds are gathering and darkness around us is getting more intense. Or, at least, that’s how it feels like. Don’t worry, my friend. I have good news for you: God sees in the darkness. We can’t but God can. So we’re safe even in the dark. Know that you will not be…

United by faith with the Word of God

United by faith with the Word of God

Are you united by faith with the Word of God? This is what I was pondering on after reading the fourth chapter of the letter to Hebrews. The writer states the message they heard did not benefit them, because it was not united with faith in God by those who heard. God’s Word needs to be merged with us so it could affect and bless us. Those who are united by faith with the Word of God are one with…

Time for Rest and Renewal

Time for Rest and Renewal

It’s time for rest and renewal, don’t you think? I’m ready for it anyway. It has been an emotional roller coaster month for my family and as I seek a new direction I feel I am truly in need of rest and renewal. That’s why I felt truly blessed when a friend of mine shared a Bible passage that had touched her heart. “‘For this is what the Sovereign Lord says: I myself will search for my sheep and look after them.  As a…

Grace Needs to Be Grace

Grace Needs to Be Grace

Salvation by grace is a phenomenal thing. It changes us if we just want to receive it. But why is it, really, that we so would like to add something to it? It’s hard to think something so great could really be freely given. But if it were not freely given, grace would not be grace anymore. And grace needs to be grace, otherwise, we’re doomed. But if it is by grace, it is no longer on the basis of…
