It’s really inspiring to hear how my texts and teachings have touched hearts (thank you for all your feedback). However, I have to admit that I feel immense emptiness and powerlessness as I get back to teaching, especially after a break. I was sharing this with God this morning and I understood that especially as empty and inadequate I was exactly the right kind of sharer of the Good News. Because it’s not about my message but about God’s Word….
My oldest goddaughter is getting married today. Even though we have never lived in the same place and sometimes even thousands of kilometers have separated us, our connection has never wavered. I’ve been praying for her since before she was born and that’s the key here: prayer. We don’t have this great connection because I would have been such an awesome godmother. It’s because of God’s grace. And that’s the secret to any steady relationship. Prayer is also the pathway to…

Like Thomas Kempis has said “To say that I am made in the image of God is to say that love is the reason for my existence, for God is love.” Thank God! He deserves your thanks. His love never quits. Thank the God of all gods, His love never quits….Pin It
I don’t even pretend to be a romance expert. But I know what real love is. And what’s not. In this romance-crazy world people have lost a sense of right and wrong also in the areas of love. Hollywood seems to be the last word on what’s cool and what’s not. Hollywood seems to be the authority over happiness in relationships nowadays. But I dare to say Hollywood does not have a clue about what real love is. Hollywood has…Pin It
