Fun Is Good!?!

Fun Is Good!?!

Believe it or not: fun is good. Too often people think that Christians should not have fun. But if Christians are not celebrating God’s love for us who is? If Christians are not dancing with angels and praising the Lord cheerfully who is? If Christians are not embracing God’s awesomeness who is? Celebrate God all day, every day. I mean, revel in him! (Phil.4:4, MSG) We are meant to love life and the Giver of life. We are not to…

Thankful Thursday

Thankful Thursday

  I was inspired today by Don Miller’s blog post “The Power of Gratitude”. He invited all of us to have “Thankful Thursday”. I thought it was a great idea. Just yesterday I posted this quote on the Flowing Faith facebook page:  “When the heart is full of joy, it always allows its joy to escape. It is like the fountain in the marketplace; whenever it is full it runs away in streams, and so soon as it ceases to…

Looking for Joy, Peace and Harmony in Your Life?

Looking for Joy, Peace and Harmony in Your Life?

Most people want joy, peace and harmony in their lives. Too often people look for them at wrong places. Very often they get exactly the opposite what they were looking for. Because the only way to get joy, peace, and harmony in our lives is through Jesus. Why? Because we have all messed up our lives so badly.

Pray Until Praise Flows

Pray Until Praise Flows

I learned that there is no point to start working before praying hard. There is no point to start working until I’ve prayed until praise flows from my lips. When praise has overtaken my soul, I am ready to do God’s work. Then it is not…

Joyful Living – a Sin or a Spiritual Fruit?

Joyful Living – a Sin or a Spiritual Fruit?

Is joyful living a sin? Is it wrong to have fun and enjoy life? Is it okay to love life? These are questions that used to haunt me as a teenager. I was on the verge of independence, eager to start out my own life. I had grown to love the Lord more than anything but I didn’t know if it was okay to have fun, enjoy life. I have a bubbly personality so this was indeed an important question…

What Is Joy? Who Is Christ? What Is Joy in Christ?

What Is Joy? Who Is Christ? What Is Joy in Christ?

How would you answer these questions? Here are my ponderings. What is joy?Joy is an essential spice in life. Without joie de vivre life would be boring. Joy is the spark in the eye, the belly-laugh, the worriless well-being. Joy is contentment through hardships, hope when there is no visible reason for it. Who is Christ?Christ is the risen son of God who wants to re-connect us with our Creator and has made it possible through dying on the cross…
