Are you afraid of the unknown?

Are you afraid of the unknown?

Are you afraid of the unknown? Many of us keep away from the unknown paths and prefer to stay in the comfort zone where we can handle things. But we are not called to stay where we can handle things. We are called to go wherever God leads us and let him handle things for us. With the wise words of Corrie Ten Boom “Never be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God.” We do not need…

Lasting and Worthwhile

Lasting and Worthwhile

Fast food, fast fashion, fast anything seems to lead us to destruction. They spoil our appetites for anything lasting and worthwhile. This fast way of thinking corrupts our hearts and minds. It seems there is nothing lasting these days. Yet only things that last are truly valuable, don’t you think? This leads me thinking whether the things I do will stand the test of time or not. Do I waste my time on things that are fast and fun but…

The Purpose of Waiting

The Purpose of Waiting

Waiting is part of life. Most often we don’t like it but we have to deal with it. But what is the purpose of waiting? I’ve started to think the purpose of waiting is to prepare us. And the longer we refuse to be prepared, the longer the waiting period will be. Because we can’t enter into a new phase of life until we’re ready. Okay, you say. How can we get ready for the unknown future? True, we don’t…

Words Have Power

Words Have Power

This week I’ve been noticing how important it is to decide whom or what kind of talk we want to listen to. Because the messages we receive change us. Words have power, much more than we think. Actually, the whole universe was created by the word of God, Jesus. In the beginning [before all time] was the Word (Christ), and the Word was with God, and the Word was God Himself. (John 1:1, AMP,*) By faith we understand that the worlds were…

Seven Tips to Deal with Challenges

Seven Tips to Deal with Challenges

Life is full of ups and downs. We’d prefer not to have many downs but that’s not life. Perpetual sunshine is waiting for us in heaven. Meanwhile, there will be lots of rain and all kinds of life challenges. How to deal with them, that’s the key here. Joy is not the absence of demanding life events, it’s the ability to deal with them. Okay, you say. How can we do that? The main thing whenever you meet any kind…

Pace with Grace

Pace with Grace

One of the secrets of living well is pacing. Life can get very busy as you very well know. If we are not careful, our life easily spins out of control. And that’s not good, right? So, if we want to live well, we need to learn to pace with grace. How can we do that? We need to remember the Christian journey is not a sprint, it’s a marathon. Hence we need to pace with grace. Otherwise, we will…

Christian Hospitality

Christian Hospitality

Have you ever been touched by someone’s hospitality? Good for you. Christian hospitality at its best is profoundly touching. I am in the learning process of this scriptural and spiritual way of serving others. I want to practice Christian hospitality myself. How about you? Do not forget or neglect or refuse to extend hospitality to strangers [in the brotherhood—being friendly, cordial, and gracious, sharing the comforts of your home and doing your part generously], for through it some have entertained…

How to Live to God

How to Live to God

As I was reading Paul’s letter to the Romans today, I started wondering what it means to live to God as Jesus did. And how to do it. Because that’s what Christian living is supposed to be, right? The death he died, he died to sin once for all; but the life he lives, he lives to God. In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus. (Romans 6:10-11, NIV, emphasis added). Within an hour I laid…

God’s Goal for Your Life

God’s Goal for Your Life

What kind of goals do you have for your life? Some people are real goal-setters and go-getters. Others are more laid-back but all of us need some intentionality for our lives. As a Christian, I try to plan my life with God, laying my dreams and plans at Jesus’ feet. God has promised to guide us and we can count on that. But what is God’s goal for your life? First of all, God’s goal for your life is salvation…

Live in Jesus’ Name

Live in Jesus’ Name

I often say “let’s start with prayer because it’s the best way to start anything”. I do mean it and I do practice it. Why you ask. Because prayers in Jesus’ name are powerful. So start always with prayer, especially if you are a recent graduate or otherwise starting a new phase in your life. And continue to live in Jesus’ name. Whatever you do [no matter what it is] in word or deed, do everything in the name of…
