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….

The Bible Is Alive and It Speaks to Me

The Bible Is Alive and It Speaks to Me

“The Bible is alive, it speaks to me”, Martin Luther said. That’s also my experience and that’s why I am hooked on reading it. Otherwise, I’d be lost. God is amazing, he does not abandon us. He cares for us and wants us to know it. Reading the Bible is a wonderful way to be reminded of these facts. At least I do need to hear it anew every morning. How about you? As soon as I pray, you answer…

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!”…

Stop Worrying So Much – God’s Got This

Stop Worrying So Much – God’s Got This

This year the season of Lent seems to start a little earlier than usual or am I the only one who is a bit surprised? Nonetheless, I find this season of preparation a huge blessing. We need it to truly appreciate the tremendousness of Easter once it rolls around. And maybe we could stop worrying so much. God’s got this. Paul David Tripp tweeted today “The story of redemption is historical proof of the unstoppable sovereignty of God. In a…

The Source of All Comfort

The Source of All Comfort

It seems to me that what we all need right now is comfort. The pandemic has been with us almost a year and the end is not quite there yet. We need to persevere but we are exhausted. Hence we need some comfort and new strength. Otherwise, we won’t make it. But do not fear, we are in good hands. The source of all comfort is our God. All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. God…

God Is Our Strength, Fortress, Refuge

God Is Our Strength, Fortress, Refuge

This year has been the oddest for sure. Holiday plans being canceled seems to be the last straw for many. But, my friend, do not be dismayed, we have ever-present help and everlasting hope. Jeremiah tells us God is our strength, fortress, and refuge. Also during unprecedented times like this. Lord, my strength and my fortress,    my refuge in time of distress.(Jeremiah 16:19, NIV,*) So whenever you start panicking or distressing, turn to God instead. This might sound too simple but it works. Yet…

Live Your Life by Faith

Live Your Life by Faith

I love knowing God knew me before I was born. He knows me thoroughly because he made me. None of us is alive by accident. We are alive because God called us into being. Just think about it! You are God’s beloved child and your life has a meaning – and purpose. So lift your head high and rejoice. Live your life by faith. Now faith is the assurance (title deed, confirmation) of things hoped for (divinely guaranteed), and the…

God Is Greater than Your Mistakes

God Is Greater than Your Mistakes

I don’t know about you but for a long time I was afraid I could mess up God’s plans for me. The fear was real and it somewhat paralyzed my decisionmaking process. But blessedly, God did not leave me to live in fear. He reminded me of his awesomeness. So I am happy to tell you God is greater than your mistakes. God’s will is not dependent on us. With the words of Lysa TerKeurst “God’s promises are not dependent…

This Too Shall Pass

This Too Shall Pass

This is just a sweet, little note to encourage you in the middle of your hardships. Believe me, this too shall pass. It might not feel like it and even not look like it but it’s true. Even the Bible tells us so: Nevertheless, that time of darkness and despair will not go on forever. (Isaiah 9:1, NLT,*) If we keep on seeking God and turning to him, this time of darkness will turn into light. This will not go…

Sacrificial Love

Sacrificial Love

Good Friday always leaves me in awe. I’m in awe of God’s patient love. And how far he was willing to go in order to save us, to unite us with him. The crucifixion did not form a pretty picture for sure. Yet it is the most beautiful picture of sacrificial love. For us. For free. It does not make sense to us to get such an amazing gift – salvation and eternal life – for free yet that’s how…
