The Father of Mercies and the God of All Comfort

The Father of Mercies and the God of All Comfort

Our heavenly father is the father of mercies and the God of all comfort, says the Bible. How wonderful is that? Especially, when we are feeling helpless and clueless. Despite everything, we are okay. Just because our God is the father of mercies and the God of all comfort. We are not alone and we are not despised. We are loved and cherished no matter what.  Blessed [gratefully praised and adored] be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus…

Watchman Nee has said “The Christian experience is, from start to finish, a journey of faith”. I couldn’t agree more. First of all, we are on our way home. But also our faith is hopefully not stagnant but evolving throughout our lives. Your faith journey is an adventure Faith gives meaning and purpose to our lives. Most of all, it give us an eternal perspective. And that changes everything. This life is not all there is, there are better things…

8 Reasons to Praise the Lord Anytime

It’s Monday. Hence it’s time to remind us of the things that really matter and keep us going no matter what. It’s time to held our two hands open to receive all of the Lord as Alan Redpath describes faith. It’s time to believe that this Monday morning blues is not all there is. I’ve always said there are always lots of reasons to praise the Lord anytime. These two verses from the first letter to Thessalonians sum up them…

Do you need some encouragement right now? You’ve come to the right place. I have a verse, a quote, and a song for you today to uplift, inspire, and encourage you. It’s always too early to give up.

Take Heart

Take Heart

Cheer up. Take heart. Be encouraged. Do not be afraid. Rest assured. These are the ways Jesus’ words for a paralyzed man have been translated. These words are also for you feeling paralyzed at this moment. Whatever it is that feels overwhelming is not a match to Jesus. So cheer up. Take heart. Be encouraged. Do not be afraid. Rest assured. God is your help. Some men brought to him a paralyzed man, lying on a mat. When Jesus saw…

By Loving Forces

By Loving Forces

One of my favorite hymns is the one made from a poem “By Loving Forces” written by Dietrich Bonhoeffer in prison. He sent it to his family for Christmas to bring hope and assurance. And this hymn still does it every time. So if you’re in dire need of encouragement in the midst of hardships, this song is for you. I’ve always loved the Finnish hymn made from the poem. Today, I fell in love with the newer German version…

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.

God Is at Work Behind the Scenes

God Is at Work Behind the Scenes

God is at work behind the scenes. In the world and in your life. No matter what is going on. God is in control and God is at work for you, in you, through you. Do not let your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid. [Stop allowing yourselves to be agitated and disturbed; and do not permit yourselves to be fearful and intimidated and cowardly and unsettled.] (John 14:27, AMP) God has not forgotten you. Rest in God and…

God Is Good All the Time

God Is Good All the Time

Isn’t it amazing how God blesses us for merely following his guidance? You see, I felt God nudging me to do this random “Message in a Bottle” giveaway so I put it in the motion awhile back. Little did I know that this little giveaway would bless me so much. And I hope you will be blessed too. Crystal won the giveaway and she requested that I would send the message in the bottle to his cousin’s wife, Lisa Greshko,…
