You Are More than Tasks

You Are More than Tasks

Why is it so deeply engraved in us that we’d need to be productive or successful in order to be accepted or admired? Yet it is a big fat lie and the eternal truth is far from it. Mary DeMuth exposes ten lies and shares ten truths in her latest book Stop Living Small: Ten Truths Toward Your Significant Life. This post will tackle the second lie: You are what you produce by showing you are more than tasks. Mary DeMuth…

Stop Living Small

Do you feel worthless? Are you living small because you feel you don’t deserve anything better? Or are you tired of trying to measure up to the standards in order to be accepted?

Removing Impurities Leads to Wholeness

Removing Impurities Leads to Wholeness

Complacency is dangerous. It can spiritually kill us. And that’s not something we want, right? Yet we are in danger if we are not alert. Feeling smug about ourselves and valuing comfort over compliance to God puts us on the dangerous ground whether we realize it or not. That’s why need to examine ourselves and ask the Holy Spirit to show us whether we are straying away from the path God has for us. Removing impurities leads to the wholeness…

The Spirit of Peace

The Spirit of Peace

How are you? I hope you’re doing well or, at least, you’re experiencing God’s peace. You know, it’s possible to experience peace even in the midst of the ugliest strifes. I know it’s hard to believe but once you’ve experienced God’s peace in the midst of chaos you know what I mean. God’s peace is ours if we want it. Because it’s not dependent on our outer circumstances. The Spirit of Peace is ours to be received no matter what….

Grace to Free You

Grace to Free You

Summer is here and everyone is supposed to chill out and enjoy life. But maybe you are not feeling it. Maybe something weighs you down. Life is confusing and complicated for sure. But I want to make sure you’re not burdened down with guilt or shame or sin. Because there is grace to free you from it all. Maybe you know this in theory but you haven’t really embraced it. Or maybe you have misunderstood it. The Gospel is not…

Right Now Is Good

Right Now Is Good

Last week was pretty rainy. One evening of these wet, chilly days I was chatting with a wonderful person. She was marveling at the budding spring nature and my reply was “as soon as this rain is over we can really enjoy it”. It’s already been almost a week since and I am still embarrassed by my comment. I can’t be such a whiner!? We were surrounded by God’s lush greenery yet I was talking about how the sun is…

God Wants the Best for You

God Wants the Best for You

Today I want to share some joy and hope with you who feel you’re drowning deeper into despair or you might feel you’ve been forgotten to endlessly wander around in the everyday maze. Know that you’re not alone or the only one who struggles with these things. Easily we think life is easy for everyone else but I’d say, for most of us, life is some sort of struggle. Through them, God is teaching us and while we wait, the…

Fuel for Spiritual Growth

Fuel for Spiritual Growth

Do you ever doubt God’s existence or his power? I bet you do. It’s part of our faith journey. Just know that you don’t need to hide your doubts from God. Instead, bring them to him. Ask for His help to overcome them. Then your doubts become fuel for spiritual growth instead of dragging your spirit down. “‘If you can’?” said Jesus. “Everything is possible for one who believes.” Immediately the boy’s father exclaimed, “I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!”…

Live Like You Believe

Live Like You Believe

Today I want to remind ourselves of the resurrection reality in the everyday life of Christians. Too often we live like nothing would have changed, like the resurrection of Jesus would not have happened. But it certainly did (even though it does sound crazy, doesn’t it?) and you should live like you believe. And that’s what you want, right? So we are always confident, even though we know that as long as we live in these bodies we are not…

Jesus Is Willing

Jesus Is Willing

One of the core Christian beliefs is God’s omnipotence. We think God can do anything and he has done some amazing things along with the salvation history, right? Indeed. So God is able. But would you also say Jesus is willing to help you? Yeah. God is able but is he willing to help us? That’s the million-dollar question. Do you believe Jesus wants to help you? If you do not believe this, you will shy away from praying. You…
