God Does Not Quit on You

God Does Not Quit on You

Do you have any projects on the back burner? Or have you abandoned some all together? Sometimes that happens. We start something with great enthusiasm but then life happens, there’s not enough time or energy to complete what we begun, so we quit. That’s very human, I think. That’s why we might assume that God would do the same to us. That he’d be excited about us for a while and then give up when we’re not that promising after…

I Am Yours, Lord

I Am Yours, Lord

Do you surrender to Jesus daily? Good for you if you do. It does not have to be anything extravagant. We can just whisper “I am yours, Lord” and experience God’s sweet, loving presence right then and there. I am Yours, therefore save me [Your own]; for I have sought (inquired of and for) Your precepts and required them [as my urgent need]. (Psalm 119:94, AMP) When we breath in the Spirit of God, we breath out our worries, regrets,…

Rooted in Christ

Rooted in Christ

Simone Weil has said “To be rooted is perhaps the most important and least recognized need of the human soul.” Being rooted is indeed one of our basic needs. Only when we are rooted we can grow. And when we are rooted in Christ, we can live forever.  [Most] blessed is the man who believes in, trusts in, and relies on the Lord, and whose hope and confidence the Lord is. For he shall be like a tree planted by the…

Getting Rid of All Ill Will

Getting Rid of All Ill Will

Did you know that the first half of the lent is already over? Less than 20 days for Easter! Let’s continue to ready our hearts, minds, and souls for Jesus. Today I want to talk about something we very easily want to forget or, at least, downplay its importance in a life of a Christian. But the Bible does not want us to forget. If we want to mature in our faith, we need to be done with every trace…

Blessings Come Through Wounds

Blessings Come Through Wounds

Do you know why we try so hard to hide our wounds? It almost feels like being vulnerable and real would be the end of the world. Like the real life would be only reserved for beautiful, perfect and unbroken. But that’s so, so wrong. First of all, there’s beauty in brokenness. Second of all, blessings come through wounds. Not by avoiding or hiding them. But by embracing them. Really. He was pierced because of our rebellions     and crushed because…

The Aroma of Christ

The Aroma of Christ

Do you know that you convey a message of eternal life or death without saying a word? I know, quite a responsibility. But our part is just to cling to Jesus. He takes care of the rest. How does that happen? Let’s find out. In the Messiah, in Christ, God leads us from place to place in one perpetual victory parade. Through us, he brings knowledge of Christ. Everywhere we go, people breathe in the exquisite fragrance. Because of Christ,…

The Last Word

The Last Word

Do you always want to have the last word in arguments? Why is it so difficult to not to be the one who knows best? Why does it seem to be so harmful to be weak and lowly? Probably because we think it is about us. Because we think we could solve the problems, that we should have power. But it is not about us. And we can’t solve the problems. And we don’t have anything lasting. If we don’t…

Jesus Got It Covered

Jesus Got It Covered

Do you worry about how your life is going to turn out? Or do you worry about how your life is going to end? If you are a friend of Jesus, there’s no need to worry. Whatever it is, Jesus got it covered. If you live with God, there’s no need to stress. Whatever it is, Jesus got it covered. Behold, I am with you all the days (perpetually, uniformly, and on every occasion), to the [very] close and consummation…

Faith Is an Adventure

Faith Is an Adventure

Faith is a daring adventure. It might not look like it. But that’s because we can’t see everything with our eyes. Like George Eliot has said it “Adventure is not outside man//It is within”. The biggest battles are fought within. The greatest adventures are experienced within. The hardest battle of all might be to believe that God exists and that he wants amazing things for every one. The enemy will do everything in his power to keep us from receiving…

Are You Trying to Use God?

Are You Trying to Use God?

I just love how Jesus fed 5000 people with two fish and five loaves of bread. We think 5 plus 2 is 7. But God’s way of thinking is way different, way bigger, and way better. What was the secret of Jesus? Then Jesus took the bread. When he had given thanks, he distributed it to those who were sitting there. He did the same with the fish, each getting as much as they wanted.When they had plenty to eat,…
