You Are More than Tasks

You Are More than Tasks

Why is it so deeply engraved in us that we’d need to be productive or successful in order to be accepted or admired? Yet it is a big fat lie and the eternal truth is far from it. Mary DeMuth exposes ten lies and shares ten truths in her latest book Stop Living Small: Ten Truths Toward Your Significant Life. This post will tackle the second lie: You are what you produce by showing you are more than tasks. Mary DeMuth…

Do you feel worthless? Are you living small because you feel you don’t deserve anything better? Or are you tired of trying to measure up to the standards in order to be accepted?

Are You Ready to Die?

Are You Ready to Die?

Lately, I’ve been reminded of how precious life is. People die in accidents, even young athletes suffer cardiac arrests, and so on. We don’t know when will be our time to go. How should we then live? And, even a more important question is: are you ready to die? Lord, what are human beings that you care for them,    mere mortals that you think of them?They are like a breath;    their days are like a fleeting shadow.(Psalm 144:3-4, NIV) When we have answers…

Right Now Is Good

Right Now Is Good

Last week was pretty rainy. One evening of these wet, chilly days I was chatting with a wonderful person. She was marveling at the budding spring nature and my reply was “as soon as this rain is over we can really enjoy it”. It’s already been almost a week since and I am still embarrassed by my comment. I can’t be such a whiner!? We were surrounded by God’s lush greenery yet I was talking about how the sun is…

Fuel for Spiritual Growth

Fuel for Spiritual Growth

Do you ever doubt God’s existence or his power? I bet you do. It’s part of our faith journey. Just know that you don’t need to hide your doubts from God. Instead, bring them to him. Ask for His help to overcome them. Then your doubts become fuel for spiritual growth instead of dragging your spirit down. “‘If you can’?” said Jesus. “Everything is possible for one who believes.” Immediately the boy’s father exclaimed, “I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!”…

Live Like You Believe

Live Like You Believe

Today I want to remind ourselves of the resurrection reality in the everyday life of Christians. Too often we live like nothing would have changed, like the resurrection of Jesus would not have happened. But it certainly did (even though it does sound crazy, doesn’t it?) and you should live like you believe. And that’s what you want, right? So we are always confident, even though we know that as long as we live in these bodies we are not…

How to Complain without Sinning

How to Complain without Sinning

The book of Numbers might not be the most exciting book in the Bible but it served as a mirror for me today. It made me question my habits of complaining. Do I do what Moses did or do I follow the example of the Israelites? I want to know how to complain without sinning. How about you? Soon the people began to complain about their hardship, and the Lord heard everything they said. (Numbers 11:1, NLT,*) The Israelites were unhappy about…

How Can We Thrive Amidst Difficulties

How Can We Thrive Amidst Difficulties

How do you keep on going when things get tough? When it’d be natural to get depressed, to give in, to let go. That is a million-dollar question, isn’t it? How can we thrive amidst difficulties, when everything seems almost unbearable? Maybe this will help you. At least, I was blessed by reading these verses from the letter to Romans: Those who live according to the flesh have their minds set on what the flesh desires; but those who live in…

The Mind of Christ

The Mind of Christ

Epiphany is one of my favorite holy days. The pressure of Christmas celebrations is over, now it is time to join the wise men worshiping Jesus and bringing him the best we have to offer. This calls for some reflection and self-evaluation, don’t you think? It is also great time to plan how we want to spend this new year. How about doing it with the mind of Christ? Therefore see that you walk carefully [living life with honor, purpose,…

Good Riddance 2020

Good Riddance 2020

Are you ready for the New Year? I am, at least, ready to say goodbye to 2020. Good riddance, right? 2020 is a year we won’t forget easily. I had such high hopes for it, yet it was nothing I had hoped for. Yet I am thankful. Because I learned a lot this year, I bet you did too. And, most of all, I am thankful because God is good all the time. The Lord is good,A strength and stronghold in the day of…
