From Desperation to Transformation

From Desperation to Transformation

Do you tend to get stuck in negative thoughts or feelings? I have good news for you. The antidote to negativity is found in prayer. Truly. We are welcome into God’s presence with any kind of desperation. Transformation happens when our feelings meet the Holy Spirit in prayer. So it’s not us, it’s the Holy Spirit. And that’s why it is so effective. The journey from desperation to transformation is short. It’s only a prayer away. So don’t try to…

Let’s Turn to Jesus

Let’s Turn to Jesus

As the Coronavirus spreads, we are forced to pause. It can feel strange to suddenly have so much time on your hands. Instead of panicking or numbing the hollowness you feel inside, let’s turn to Jesus. He is the only one who can fill the empty hole inside of you. With the words of Blaise Pascal “There is a God-shaped vacuum in the heart of every man which cannot be filled by any created thing, but only by God, the…

Jesus Brings Everything

Jesus Brings Everything

Today I was thinking about God’s goodness. How God has chosen us in Christ even before he made the world. He prepared salvation for us through Jesus so we could be united with him. Amazing. The fact is, we bring nothing to the table except our sin and need to be rescued. Jesus brings everything, all the spiritual blessings, all the good things and then some. Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed…

God Enables Our Faith

God Enables Our Faith

Before we can work out our faith, God needs to work salvation in us. It’s always God first, then we are able to respond. God enables our faith. We are not even authors of our faith. God is. He is the miracle worker, not us. We can’t make ourselves worthy of God’s love or grace. But God can and he is continually at it. Let’s let God work in us freely. Then we can work out our faith for his…

The Process of Becoming a Person of Faith

The Process of Becoming a Person of Faith

I find it a huge blessing to know perfection is not required for Christians. Martin Luther has said, “A Christian is never in a state of completion but always in a process of becoming”. We are in the process of becoming a person of faith. God is at work in us. We are becoming what God created us to be. Unfortunately, we are able to hinder the process through our decision making. If we always choose things based on convenience,…

Nothing Surprises God

Nothing Surprises God

Do you like surprises? I guess it depends on whether they’re good or bad. And, most importantly, whether you trust God or not. Life is full of twists and turns for sure. How we react to them depends on how certain we are about God’s will happening in our lives and how certain we are nothing surprises God. Because nothing surprises God. You can count on that. And he has a plan for our lives. You might wonder why he…

Embracing God’s Perspective

Embracing God’s Perspective

There are some puzzling Bible stories of what Jesus did, like turning tables of money changers and telling Peter, ‘Get behind Me, Satan!’ It’s a bit shocking to hear Jesus reacting this way but when we look at the stories a bit closer, we find deep wisdom in them. Today I want to talk about the latter story. It will help us to understand the importance of embracing God’s perspective. From that time on, Jesus began to show his disciples that…

God Loves You

God Loves You

Do you know deep down in your soul that God loves you? I hope so. Because that’s the truth. No matter what you’ve done or left undone, God’s love does not waver. It’s not about you, it’s about who God is. What a relief! This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and…
