The Cost of Soft Living

The Cost of Soft Living

God has promised to never abandon us. Quite a promise, don’ you think? If God is this good to us, why then do we abandon him? We might think we are fond of God but our everyday choices speak otherwise. Somehow, God is far from our mind when we decide how we spend our days, weeks, years, our life. Yet we are called to follow Christ, not the tv schedule. The cost of soft living can be very high. On…

Lasting and Worthwhile

Lasting and Worthwhile

Fast food, fast fashion, fast anything seems to lead us to destruction. They spoil our appetites for anything lasting and worthwhile. This fast way of thinking corrupts our hearts and minds. It seems there is nothing lasting these days. Yet only things that last are truly valuable, don’t you think? This leads me thinking whether the things I do will stand the test of time or not. Do I waste my time on things that are fast and fun but…

God’s Willingness to Help

God’s Willingness to Help

Once again I am taken by a short verse in the Bible. It amazes me how the Word of God can feed us precisely what we need most. And it’s most certainly a verse that I’ve read many times yet it still clears my head and helps me to breathe more deeply. It reminds me of God’s willingness to help me. And when I remember that I am ready to tackle anything life throws at me. When I am afraid,    I…

The Purpose of Waiting

The Purpose of Waiting

Waiting is part of life. Most often we don’t like it but we have to deal with it. But what is the purpose of waiting? I’ve started to think the purpose of waiting is to prepare us. And the longer we refuse to be prepared, the longer the waiting period will be. Because we can’t enter into a new phase of life until we’re ready. Okay, you say. How can we get ready for the unknown future? True, we don’t…

Evidence of the Power of Grace

It is wonderful to be saved by grace through faith in Jesus for sure. But is that all grace is? Shouldn’t there be some evidence of the power of grace in our lives too? I think so. That’s why I was so delighted to stumble upon this tweet…

Bring Everything to God

Bring Everything to God

One thing I’ve learned from the Bible is that we need to bring everything to God. Everything. Whatever it is that troubles us, we need to give to God. Sometimes we think God wants only the good stuff but that’s not true. God wants the whole package: the good, the bad, and the ugly. Because he knows we need Him to live according to his will. Hence, if we doubt, we give that doubt to God. Then he can come…

Turning Tables

Turning Tables

Do you remember the Bible story of Jesus overturning the tables of the money changers? It used to puzzle me yet amaze me at the same time. Why would Jesus do it? And what would turning tables mean in my life? Jesus entered the temple courts and drove out all who were buying and selling there. He overturned the tables of the money changers and the benches of those selling doves. (Matthew 21:12, NIV) I think Jesus was angry that people were…
