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,…

By the Power of God

By the Power of God

Do you feel inadequate to be God’s disciple? Are you struggling with insecurities? Today’s post is for you. Here’s what Paul wrote to Timothy from jail. Suddenly Timothy had to take up a primary leadership role and he felt inadequate and maybe a bit terrified of the size of the task waiting for him. Then he receives this letter from Paul reminding him of a very encouraging fact in all of our lives: For God did not give us a…

Encouragement for You {Give Away}

Encouragement for You {Give Away}

It’s time for some encouragement, don’t you think? This will be a very short and sweet post today (due to the 3-hour power outage) but here’s the profound truth that keeps me going no matter what: “God is always with me and for me”. We can build our lives on God and his promises. So write this down, beloved of God: God is always with you and for you. This truth is valid for every single person on this planet….

The Comparison Trap

The Comparison Trap

I’ve always thought that comparison is from the devil. So I smiled wide when I reached the chapter five of Kurt Bubna‘s new book  Epic Grace, Chronicles of Recovering Idiot . The chapter is titled “The Curse of Comparison”. My thoughts exactly. “Comparison is a trap because it feeds either the beast of pride or the monster of insecurity”, Kurt writes “Either way, we lose”. We really do lose by comparing ourselves to others or to an unreachable standard. That’s…

God Will Not Let You Down

God Will Not Let You Down

Are you feeling the effects of Monday? Are you in need of a fresh supply of hope and encouragement? If yes, let’s turn our eyes on God. That’s where our help comes, day after day. God will never let us down. I’m homesick—longing for your salvation;     I’m waiting for your word of hope. My eyes grow heavy watching for some sign of your promise;     how long must I wait for your comfort? There’s smoke in my eyes—they burn and water,…

Called to Fulfilling Lives

Called to Fulfilling Lives

“What is it that you want? Do you want an easy life? Or do you want what’s best for you? Do you want to fit in with the crowd? Or do you want to abide in Me?” Can you hear God challenging us this morning? “So, Jeremiah [insert your own name here], if you’re worn out in this footrace with men,     what makes you think you can race against horses? And if you can’t keep your wits during times of…

Is There Beauty in Brokenness?

Is There Beauty in Brokenness?

Have you ever been so broken, shattered into zillion little pieces, that you were sure there was no hope for you? Or are you heart-broken right now? There’s good news for broken people! In Jesus all the broken and dislocated pieces of the universe get properly fixed and fit together in vibrant harmonies! There’s hope because of Jesus’ blood that poured down from the cross! He [Jesus] was supreme in the beginning and—leading the resurrection parade—he is supreme in the…

Starting 2012 with GOD

Starting 2012 with GOD

Happy New Year, dear fellow pilgrim! Let’s start 2012 by listening what God has to say to us: Don’t fear, for I have redeemed you;    I have called you by name;    you are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you;    when through the rivers,    they won’t sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you won’t be scorched    and flame won’t burn you. I am the LORD your God,    the holy one of Israel,…
