Let Yourself Be Renewed

Let Yourself Be Renewed

Too often we think it is our job to renew our mind. We put it on our to-do list and forget it under the pressures of everyday life. And the truth to be told, if it were up to me, my mind would never be renewed. I am not into religious performances. Rather, I crave for spiritual intimacy with our heavenly Father. If you’re with me, let’s find out how you can let yourself be renewed. Instead, let the Spirit renew…

Tune in to God

Tune in to God

Are you rushing around like crazy? Unfortunately, many of us do. But, you know, that way we rush through our whole lives without savoring them. It is time to take back our lives. We don’t have to rush around without purpose. There is time for everything. Especially for lingering in God’s presence and listening to him. Hence do not rush, tune in to God. How then to slow down? C.S. Lewis guides us this way “It comes the very moment you wake…

When You Are Weary, Crawl to Jesus

When You Are Weary, Crawl to Jesus

When you are totally empty, just crawl to Jesus. It doesn’t matter you have nothing left to give, you are still most welcome to Jesus. God is way more interested in you than in what you can do for him. Actually, with less of you, there is more room for Jesus. So when you’re exhausted and weary, don’t hesitate, just crawl to Jesus. Know that you can always find rest in Jesus. Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who…

Empowered Living

Empowered Living

I love to read the Bible but once in a while I have days that it does not happen. Yesterday, I was already outside heading to the car before I remembered I hadn’t read any Word of God that morning. Yes, we are busy but we can’t be that busy. So I marched back in to get my Bible so I could read even just a verse or two before heading out. I didn’t even take my shoes off (which is…

God Guards Us

God Guards Us

Summer is a time of exploration and it is indeed good for us to get out of our routines. Also, when we are not in our comfort zone, we might be more likely to notice God’s movement in our lives. This happened to me this summer. I’ve always believed in guardian angels, God’s protection, and guidance so in that sense this was not a surprise for me. But these little experiences left me in awe of God anyway. God guards us….

My Approach to Living Well

My Approach to Living Well

Do you enjoy celebrating birthdays and different anniversaries or would you rather not? Would you rather just keep calm and keep on doing your own thing? It is easy to get so caught up in our own routines that we forget to enjoy life and appreciate people around us? How could we remedy that? And how could we embrace life – and complications that come with it- with gusto? The most unlikely Bible verse helps me to do this. And in…

We Are Not Robots

We Are Not Robots

We need rest because we are not robots. Hence we all need a vacation, some time off. But this does not mean we need to necessarily go anywhere. The key to vacation is to take a leave of absence from routines. Staycation might be even more restful if we are able to break the routines while staying at home. We are not robots, we have a spirit, a soul, and a body. And all these different parts of us need to…

Learning to Dance in Grace

Learning to Dance in Grace

Recently, I was looking for some wall art. Something inspirational to start my day out right. So I was browsing on the internet to get a general idea what’s available these days. I stumbled upon some word quote stickers and decided to see if anything resonated with me. One of them declared: ‘Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass. It’s about learning to dance in the rain’. It is a beautiful sentiment, don’t you think? Full of positive…

Meeting God in His Word

Meeting God in His Word

What is your favorite Bible translation and why? A couple of days ago I finished reading the Finnish translation and now I try to decide which translation I will do next. Any recommendations? I need to make a quick decision because I want to return to regular Bible reading as soon as possible. Because it anchors me in Jesus. It blesses me more than I know. So, let me know which Bible version you recommend. I can’t wait to return back…

Take a Pause – Regularly

Take a Pause – Regularly

Running around and always doing something is not our purpose in life. Our purpose comes from communing with our Maker. And that is not possible if we constantly are stressed out about things and press on fitting more stuff in our already busy lives. We do need to take a pause and do it regularly. Otherwise, we will burn out. Not only physically and mentally but also spiritually. And that’s the opposite of God’s will for our lives. Yet, sadly,…
