Adjusting to the New Normal

Adjusting to the New Normal

We all have a new normal now due to the threat of Covid-19. How are you adjusting? For some of us it is easy, but some might struggle quite a bit. What could we do to ease anxiety as we are adjusting to the new normal? The first thing is to remember even if the world and life is changing fast, God is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow. And we can count on him in everything. Jesus Christ is…

Surrendering to God Brings Blessings

Surrendering to God Brings Blessings

Do you think the talk about God is good as long as it does not demand you to alter your way of living? That’s how we think of most of things, right? All is good until it tries to limit our life. We think any restrictions will spoil everything we have. But new and different do not – most often – equal bad or spoiled. Especially when it comes to surrendering to God and obeying his will. It’s the best…

Live in Jesus

Live in Jesus

Hurry is the enemy of spiritual well-being, don’t you think? Hurriedness blurs our vision and steals our joy. Soon we feel strangers in our own lives. That’s not what we want, right? It’s the opposite of happiness. Yet we end up there when we hurry through our lives and do not live in Jesus. Christmas time was supposed to be relaxing and joyful. Yet most of us hurried through the festivities are were left drained instead. Why do we do…

The Cost of Soft Living

The Cost of Soft Living

God has promised to never abandon us. Quite a promise, don’ you think? If God is this good to us, why then do we abandon him? We might think we are fond of God but our everyday choices speak otherwise. Somehow, God is far from our mind when we decide how we spend our days, weeks, years, our life. Yet we are called to follow Christ, not the tv schedule. The cost of soft living can be very high. On…

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…
