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…

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…

Process Your Life with God

Process Your Life with God

I often talk about life with God because living with God gives your life colors. Often I have struggled to convey to you how to do it in real life and then God provided a perfect teachable moment last week. My family was deeply disappointed with the canceled year in Africa as I wrote in my previous blog post. This experience allowed me to re-experience what it is to process your life with God. When your life is turned upside…

How to Stay the Course

How to Stay the Course

When things get tough, we are tempted to quit. But as it’s the darkest moment right before the dawn, the best things come for those who stay the course anyhow. Okay, you say. You want to do so but how on earth are you able to do so? That is the question, isn’t it? Let’s find out. The best thing to do is to stay in God’s presence. If you run, you lose. But if you stay, you win. So…

Live Your Life by Faith

Live Your Life by Faith

I love knowing God knew me before I was born. He knows me thoroughly because he made me. None of us is alive by accident. We are alive because God called us into being. Just think about it! You are God’s beloved child and your life has a meaning – and purpose. So lift your head high and rejoice. Live your life by faith. Now faith is the assurance (title deed, confirmation) of things hoped for (divinely guaranteed), and the…

God Is Greater than Your Mistakes

God Is Greater than Your Mistakes

I don’t know about you but for a long time I was afraid I could mess up God’s plans for me. The fear was real and it somewhat paralyzed my decisionmaking process. But blessedly, God did not leave me to live in fear. He reminded me of his awesomeness. So I am happy to tell you God is greater than your mistakes. God’s will is not dependent on us. With the words of Lysa TerKeurst “God’s promises are not dependent…

Have You Heard? Trouble Is Normal

Have You Heard? Trouble Is Normal

COVID-19 has certainly revamped our lives, hasn’t it? The new normal has been challenging for sure but nonetheless we have prevailed, right? So many of us pray daily that this pandemic would end so we could go back to trouble-free existence. But I have news for you. Trouble is normal in life, there is no such thing as trouble-free existence. Actually, Jesus promised us troubles and some of us wish he hadn’t done it. Jesus told us that in the…

Time to Refrain from Embracing

Time to Refrain from Embracing

I have loved Ecceleciastes ever since my teenage years. There was something that captured my heart even though I could not pinpoint what it exactly was. Nonetheless, I appreciated the call to embrace life fully with God. But I would have never guessed it would help me to cope with COVID-19. Yet it does by stating there is a time to refrain from embracing, time for social distancing. There is a time for everything,    and a season for every activity under the…

Drinking from the Well of Life

Drinking from the Well of Life

During my morning prayer time, I felt strongly God wanted to remind me (and you) he is the Living Water, the source of all the good things, and the spring of life eternal. They are all fantastic things, huge gifts of God to us. He is the provider, we are always the receivers. We just need to abide in him, continually, to keep on receiving. A few hours later, I came across this quote by Gloria Copeland and I realized…

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…
