God Does not Abandon You

God Does not Abandon You

Do you have abandonment issues? Are you afraid of people leaving you? As a child that would be catastrophic but as an adult we can take it. We don’t have to be afraid of being left alone even if we hate it. Of course, even that knowledge does not fully take away our fear and dislike of abandonment. But God does if we let him. Because God does not abandon you. Ever. For He has said, “I will never[under any…

Room for Miracles

Room for Miracles

Is there room for miracles in your life? I hope so. Otherwise, you’d be limiting God in your life. And, in some ways, I think faith itself is a miracle, anything with God is a miracle. Every breath we take is a gift, every blessing is a miracle. If we want more God, we need to make room for miracles, make room for God to show up. Because God is a miracle-worker. God is awe-inspiring from dawn to dusk. He…

Experience the Joy of Your Faith

Experience the Joy of Your Faith

Unfortunately, people don’t think God is joyful. And by believing that they deprive themselves true joy. You see, God is joy and all joy derives from him. Somehow people have convinced themselves the opposite like God would want us to be miserable. But you could not be further from the truth. God wants you to be joyful. Not artificially but thoroughly joyful with every fiber of your being. Joy is possible because of God even in dark seasons of our lives. It…

God Is the Source of All Beauty

God Is the Source of All Beauty

Beauty – how do you define it? It’s a hard task, isn’t it? Beauty is much more than just loveliness. In some ways, I think, we can intuitively sense beauty is something other-worldly or heavenly. Maybe a better question would be: how does encountering beauty make you feel? Or what or who does beauty remind you of? These questions would lead you more towards the source of beauty. God is the source of all beauty In the matters of beauty I’ve…

Drink from the River of Pure Joy

Drink from the River of Pure Joy

I love Psalms. My whole life fits in the book of Psalms. It confronts, consoles, and counsels me. And, yes, it lifts my spirit and encourages me to go on with God. It reminds me what is important, who is in charge and why it matters what I choose and how I live. The book of Psalms guides me to the river of pure joy. Your faithful love is priceless, God!     Humanity finds refuge in the shadow of your wings….

Christian Hope

Christian Hope

  Christian hope is a different kind of hope. It’s not based on wishful thinking or false hope. Christian hope does not depend on our own positivity and we are not hope-makers either. Instead, Christian hope is based on Christ and what he has done for us. Jesus is our hope. And that hope never lets us down. How freeing it is to realize that God is the source of hope. He is always the same. Hope is also not something…

Leave Excuses Behind

Leave Excuses Behind

Wednesday night I was teaching a class about how faith can help us in tough times. While I was teaching I realized how much we really miss out if we keep on making excuses for why we are not getting to know God better. God can be everything we ever need and more. Yet, we prefer to struggle on our own. Why is that? It’s our loss for sure. But, also, living that way does not prepare us to heaven…

Bring Your Needs to God

Bring Your Needs to God

What’s your need today? How are you going to go about it? What’s your plan to fill your need? Your answers will reveal a lot about you. Too often we try to be independent until we can’t do it. For some of us, it’s easier to ask for help than others. But even the best human efforts will not help you in all of your needs. You need God, only he can fill all your needs. So bring your needs…

Find Fullness of Joy by Being in God’s Presence

Find Fullness of Joy by Being in God’s Presence

Sometimes Christians seek God for the gifts and blessings God gives to his children. But God is so much more than his lavish gifts. Sometimes we get way more excited about doing things for God than being with God. Yet only by being in God’s presence, we are at our best. Only by being in God’s presence, we bloom. And only by being in God’s presence, we are truly happy. In Your presence is fullness of joy. (Psalm 16:11, AMP)…

Under the Shield of Grace

Under the Shield of Grace

A few days ago, I was reading an older translation of the Finnish Bible and encountered something beautiful in the last verse of Psalm 5. It declares ‘You will cover them with grace like a shield’. My heart rejoiced to know that we are covered by the shield of grace. How wonderful is that? We are safe under the shield of grace! I was so thrilled about the shield of grace that I immediately wanted to share it with you….
