Make the Lord Your Safe Haven

Make the Lord Your Safe Haven

Do you have a safe haven? We all need one. I know the best there is: God Almighty. You are invited there too.

You lavish it on those who come to you for protection,     blessing them before the watching world. You hide…

Seeking the Real Life

Seeking the Real Life

Today I’ve been touched by two, very short Bible passages. They affirm my dedication to seek God and all the good things in life. This life style does not leave me short-changed. This life style leads into the real life. And not just any kind of life – but glorious life! Whoever goes hunting for what is right and kind     finds life itself—glorious life! (Proverbs 21:21, MSG,*) We are to build ourselves up in Christ and by doing so we…

Be Generous Like God

Be Generous Like God

We are told to be generous, right? How do you feel about it? How would you feel if someone told you to not to try to be more generous than God? I was puzzled for sure. Especially when it was Bernard of Clairvaux (1090 – August 20, 1153). Read it yourself! What could it mean? “The man who is wise, therefore, will see his life as more like a reservoir than a canal. The canal simultaneously pours out what it…

How to Wear Light

How to Wear Light

Past few days I have had an image of God shining upon his people persistently popping in my head. So I started to explore what this image could mean. Our efforts to understand God will always fall short but we need to keep trying…because if we just get a glimpse of God’s awesomeness, we are truly blessed. God wants to shine on us. God wants to bless us. God wants to dwell in us. We are called to become children…

How to Experience the Sweetness of God

How to Experience the Sweetness of God

Have you ever experienced the sweetness of God? Because that is the essence of God. We only get little glimpses of it at this side of eternity but it’s real. It’s real, sweet, and wonderful. Knowing God is to know his sweetness. Being loved by God means being enveloped in his sweetness. Living in the Spirit is about enjoying the sweetness of God. The sweetness of God is readily available for all his children. It’s not magic but too often…

Being in God’s Presence

Being in God’s Presence

The word God gave me for this year is devotion. Hence I’ve been trying to learn to sit in God’s presence without my own agenda. Just to enjoy God. Nothing else. In January I wrote: “I want to be seen by God and I want to see God. I want to meet God in his terms. I want to spend time in quiet adoration. I want to devote my heart and mind to God. I want to sit in his…
