Laughter and Good Cheer

Laughter and Good Cheer

Do you like to laugh? Or have you forgotten how? Holiness does not mean cheerlessness. Actually, we are called to be cheerful no matter what. We are called to sing ourselves into God’s presence. We are called to be joyful. Laughter and good cheer are God’s good gifts to us. On your feet now—applaud God! Bring a gift of laughter,       sing yourselves into his presence. (Psalm 100:1-2, MSG,*) Laughter is indeed a gift from God. Life without laughter would be dull,…

No Peace without Jesus

No Peace without Jesus

Are you stressed out? Does a quiet retreat sound good? Are you looking for a get away in the midst of chaos? Make sure you’re not looking for peace in wrong places. C.S. Lewis reminds us “God cannot give us a happiness and peace apart from Himself, because it is not there. There is no such thing.” There’s no peace without Jesus. No matter what the world says. I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have…

When God Feels Distant

When God Feels Distant

Are you feeling right now that God is way too silent or, at least, the connection is static at its best? Don’t worry. Help is near. God is near. Even when God feels distant. As Frederich Buechner has said “There is no event so commonplace but that God is present within it, always hiddenly, always leaving you room to recognize Him or not recognize Him, but all the more fascinatingly because of that, all the more compellingly and hauntingly.” There…

Boldness

Boldness

Happy New Year, dear friends of Flowing Faith! What’s your word for 2016? I’ve been praying for mine for weeks. (If you’re interested in finding out yours and don’t know how to go about it, my blogging friend Lisa has a great post about the process.) Eventually, I was lead to word ‘boldness’. It is a bit scary word. But after my year of ‘readiness’ it is a very logical one. Without readiness there could not be boldness. And all…

Chewing on Scripture

Chewing on Scripture

Are you familiar with God’s word? What are your Bible-reading habits? Psalm one encourages all of us to chew on Scripture. What could that be? How would your life benefit from chewing on Scripture? How well God must like you— you don’t hang out at Sin Saloon,  you don’t slink along Dead-End Road, you don’t go to Smart-Mouth College. Instead you thrill to God‘s Word, you chew on Scripture day and night.  (Psalm 1:1-2 MSG) Chewing on Scripture means thinking…

My Ten Favorite Martin Luther Quotes

My Ten Favorite Martin Luther Quotes

Martin Luther was born on the 10th of November 1483 and to celebrate his birthday I share with you ten profound quotes of his. They are still relevant over 500 years later. How come? Because only eternal things have lasting value. Luther preached Christ crucified (1 Cor. 1:23). He reminded us of what is essential: we are saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ. He pointed us to the cross. He encouraged us to focus on Christ.  He encouraged…

Trust with All Your Heart

Trust with All Your Heart

Do you trust God with all your heart? Or do you withdraw your trust when things start looking gloomy? That’s what we so often do. But trusting when things are going well is not really trusting, is it? Trusting starts when things get rough, don’t you think? That’s exactly when we need to decide to trust God. We are to live by faith and not by sight. This is time to put faith in action. Trust in the Lord with…

Make Your Plans Big

Make Your Plans Big

Boldness, fearless confidence, and patient endurance seem to be the top qualities for a disciple of Jesus Christ. I so crave to embody all of them. I love quotes like “If God is your partner, make your plans BIG!” by D.L. Moody. God is big and nothing is impossible for him so we need to be ready to live large for Christ. But are we really doing that? Or are our plans too small after all? there’s no point to…

REthink Your Life with Jesus Christ

REthink Your Life with Jesus Christ

How would your life be different if you dared to “live as if Christ died yesterday, rose this morning, and is coming back tomorrow “(Martin Luther)? This question has been staying with me for quite a long time now. You are called to rethink your life with Jesus Christ too. Are you really following him? Would you be ready to state like Jack Hyles “I’d rather die in the will of God than to live outside of it”? When you’re…
