Live and Breathe God

Live and Breathe God

I have this habit of falling in love with words, especially with words from the Word. Today the sentence I say over and over again is from Psalm 32: I live and breathe God” (Psalm 34:2, MSG,*). I want to live and breathe God. What does it mean? Live and breathe God This sounds like a very intimate way of living, doesn’t it? For sure, it’s not a long-distance relationship if we live and breath God. It’s an ongoing, all-in kind…

The Word of God Directs Our Path

The Word of God Directs Our Path

One of the most famous Bible verses is Psalm 119:105 (AMP): Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. There are songs about it and almost everybody – it seems like it – knows it by heart.

By your words I can see where I’m going;     they throw a beam of light on my dark path….

(Un)just Like Jonah

(Un)just Like Jonah

We all know the the story of Jonah. We chuckle, we might find Jonah even endearing.

Jonah experienced first-hand God’s mercy right then and there, probably for the first time in his life. Jonah knew God, we might even say that he had a relationship with God. But yet he was a stranger to grace. Suddenly…
