Somewhere in Your Silent Night

Somewhere in Your Silent Night

I don’t know about you but I feel I am so far behind in my Christmas preparations. I don’t even dare to tell my American friends how behind I am. It’s not the first time either. The first year I was teaching at Concordia College (at Moorhead, MN) I bought my gifts – other than from the college bookstore – at the airports on my way home. I just had been so busy with teaching and grading and everything else…

King of the World

King of the World

Have you heard Natalie Grant’s song King of the World? It tells about how easy it is to forget God is the kind of the world. The song tells about our tendency to put God in a box. Have you done that lately? Listen and be convicted. May God rule every inch of our lives! The lyrics of King of the World I tried to fit you in the walls inside my mind I try to keep you safely in…

Celebrate! You Are a Child of God

Celebrate! You Are a Child of God

Do you know you’re not supposed to be a slave of God? You know, so many people walk away from God because they think just that? They keep their distance because they think they’re free that way. But they are in bondage to fear and all kind of addictions (need of approval, love, success, fame, money, drugs, you name it) whether they know it or not. Just think how their lives would change if they knew that each and everyone…

Soul on Fire

Soul on Fire

Guess what’s my new favorite Christian song? Right. Soul on Fire by Third Day. I’ve been singing, dancing and praying it today like crazy. I hope this blesses you as much as it has blessed me. May all our souls be on fire for God! God, I’m running for Your heart I’m running for Your heart Till I am a soul on fire Lord, I’m longing for Your ways I’m waiting for the day When I am a soul on…

God’s Name on Our Lips

God’s Name on Our Lips

One of the most breath-taking reminders of God’s awesomeness this summer has been delivered to me by a song called The Sound of Breathing by Jason Gray. It celebrates the mystery and beauty of God’s name. Then Moses said to God, “Suppose I go to the People of Israel and I tell them, ‘The God of your fathers sent me to you’; and they ask me, ‘What is his name?’ What do I tell them?”  God said to Moses, “I-AM-WHO-I-AM….

Who Am I?

Who Am I?

Do you have a positive identity?Do you know that you are beloved? One of life’s most amazing experiences is finding yourself in God. If you don’t yet know that you are God’s beloved or if you keep forgetting that you are God’s treasure, this message is especially for you. This post was inspired by Jason Gray‘s fabulous song called “Remind Me Who I Am”. It’s about the struggle we face when we forget whose we are, what is our true…

A Mighty Fortress Is Our God

A Mighty Fortress Is Our God

Today is Martin Luther’s birthday, the day after mine. That’s why I’ve always felt a deep kinship with him. I love the passionate way Martin Luther talks about God’s grace. Luther’s most famous hymn “A Mighty Fortress is Our God” is such a good example of his unwavering faith in Christ Jesus. The hymn is a paraphrase of Psalm 46. The hymn is widely and ecumenically used which brings me much joy. A mighty fortress is our God, a bulwark…

How Deep the Father’s Love for Us

How Deep the Father’s Love for Us

Melodic Monday reflects on How Deep the Father’s Love (by Phillips, Craig, and Dean). What a powerful song! What a powerful love! What a powerful salvation story! That God would give his only son to make a wretch his treasure! The song points out so well that it was OUR sin why Jesus suffered on the cross. It is OUR voice that is mocking God. We deserve death and we get resurrection instead! All because of Christ Jesus! Hallelujah! Let’s…

God will always be with us. Something amazing wonderful! Something worthy of praise! Happy Melodic Monday! Praise the Lord! Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death Your perfect love is casting out fear And even when I’m caught in the…
